Citroën DS3 Cabrio is the latest advance in the distinctively styled DS line.

Boasting enhanced personalisation possibilities with a range of roof designs, a series of special editions, a Racing version and Ultra Prestige models, DS3 has played a major role in boosting awareness of the expanding DS line. Overall, sales of DS3, DS4 and DS5 have already topped the 300,000 mark globally in just 30 months.

DS3 Cabrio boasts all the hallmarks that have made the hatchback so successful. DS3 Cabrio leads the way for occupant space as the only five-seater in its class and features the biggest boot in the segment at 245 litres.

The electrically operated folding roof can be fully opened or closed at speeds of up to 75mph – which is also unique in this segment – and takes just 16 seconds to fully close.

DS3 Cabrio will be available from launch with a choice of three Euro V petrol engines – VTi 82, VTi 120 and THP 155. The VTi engines are mated with 5-speed manual gearboxes and the THP 155 is twinned with a 6-speed manual transmission.

DS3 Cabrio is available in the DS line’s three signature trim levels – DSign, DStyle & DSport – with ownership starting at £15,045 for the VTi 82 DSign rising to £19,675 for the THP 155 DSport. The most popular model is forecast to be the VTi 120 DStyle at £17,425.
