As it is a car adressed mostly to womens, the Citroen DS3 will now be available with a new automatic gearbox, introduced on the recently facelifted version.
Following on from the LED Vision headlamps that came in September 2014, and the THP 165 S&S engine with six-speed manual gearbox in November 2014, the DS3 is getting the much awaited six-speed automatic transmission. The EAT6 transmission is coupled with a three-cylinder PureTech 110 hp turbocharged engine, which gives high torque from low engine revs. 
Gear shifts are faster and smoother and combined-cycle fuel consumption is 4.7 litres per 100 km for the hatchback and 4.9 litres for the Cabrio version. The CO2 emissions are 108 g/km (hatchback), down by 42 g/km (28% less than with the VTi 120 automatic version) or 112 g/km (Cabrio).   
Lower fuel consumption is obtained through reduced internal friction (optimized clutch disks, oil pump flow adjusted on the basis of engine load, and a redesigned hydraulic distributor making it possible to use a smaller oil pump).
The pricing for the automatic versions of the DS are as follows:
– the PureTech 110 S&S EAT6 So chic is €22,000
– the PureTech 110 S&S EAT6 Sport chic is €24,600
