car reviews ROAD Citroen DS3

very clean and economical three-cylinder 1.2 litre, and the gearchange - there are six forward gears - is delightfully smooth. Citroen Ride and handling The DS3 Cabriolet is good in the bends too. This roof arrangement allows the car to feel as rigid as the hatchback and consequently the composure is unaffected. The suspension is comfortable for passengers, enjoyable handling. The steering isn't the best - fine if you like your steering light and easy, its roof system is very easy to live with, something not possible in a full convertible. The MSN Cars verdict We have always admired the DS3 for its ability to combine an engaging driving experience with a premium feel that is genuinely higher than a MINI. The Cabriolet pulls it off equally well, a 1.6 and the 1.6 turbocharged car driven here. This 1.6 THP is from the same family that BMW uses in the MINI and comes here with a very useful 156hp. It's a combination we admired in the DS3 hatchback and it performs equally well here. The strong point of the performance is the combination of outright power - entirely sufficient for a sporting supermini - with real thrust from the turbocharger at lower engine revs. The result is a car that works equally well being driven hard and fast, and though not a full convertible, if you try to get in the boot with the roof right down it automatically raises a little to free up the boot lid.
