    Reasons Why You Should Purchase Citroën’s DS3

    If you’re on the hunt for a trendy looking hatchback, then look no further than Citroen’s DS3...


The popular head turning Citroen DS3 was the first car to be created under the ‘DS’ premium badge. Since it first debuted on the car market five years ago, it has gained a respectable reputation and is a strong contender on the city car and hatchback market, offering excellent affordability, reliability and practicality.

The DS3 is most recognised for its two-toned colour roof and body, which makes it so recognisable on the road. The model comes with a huge collection of colour options, allowing its drivers to personalise their car to their personal taste as well as their unique driving requirements.  


On the outside the DS3 is bold and strong, with a double chevron grille and shark fin style C pillars for a sporty stance. The eye-catching Xenon headlamps with LED light running elements to the front are paired with 3D tail lights to the rear, adding further to the model’s stylishly elegant exterior.

The interior of the DS3 is just as unique and impressive thanks to the eye catching full-width dashboard and glossy black centre console. Climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity all come with the standard model. The comfortable cabin offers plenty of room for passengers and the driver, and the steering wheel can be adjusted to ensure it is within easy reach – an ideal added bonus if the car is to have multiple drivers.

There are two petrol engines available for the DS3; the 1.6 litre VTi with 120bhp and 1.2 litre VTi with 82bhp. If you prefer a diesel engine, the DS3 comes with a choice of either the 1.6 litre BlueHDi engine or 1.6 litre e-HDi with 90bhp, emitting just 95g/km CO2 emissions.

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
