EFFICIENT AND EXHILARATING

Powerful engines that respect the planet

New DS 3 has a choice of petrol or diesel engines.

The PureTech three-cylinder petrol engine family was voted International Engine of the Year (2015 and 2016) for the way it produces the power of a four-cylinder but with much improved economy and emissions.

The BlueHDi diesels are class leaders thanks to their low carbon dioxide output.

No compromises on your safety

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY TO KEEP YOU SAFE

We've equipped New DS 3 with the latest safety technology to guarantee the utmost protection for you and your passengers.

New DS 3 may be small but it's tough with a strong passenger safety cell. In addition to the cockpit's six airbags, all five seats have head restraints and three-point seat belts.

There is also new safety equipment such as Active City Brake. This avoids or limits the impact of low-speed collisions by automatically braking New DS 3 to a halt from speeds of up to 18mph. Other electronic driver aids include ABS anti-lock brakes, with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Emergency Braking Assistance.

AIRBAGS

Six airbags including:
* Two front airbags with passenger airbag key de-activation to enable safe installation of child seats
* Side 'thorax' airbags for driver and front-seat passenger
* Side curtain airbags for front and rear occupants
