PureTech petrol engines
BlueHDi diesel engines
E-Tense 100% electric
Powerful and efficient, our PureTech petrol engines guarantee dynamic driving with particularly low emissions. We recommend choosing a PureTech engine if you mostly drive around town, with lower annual mileage, or if you are looking for a dynamic driving experience.
Fitted with the latest innovative pollution control system, our BlueHDi diesel engines are recognised for their high level of efficiency. Less polluting and higher performing, they comply with new WLTP standards.
BlueHDi diesel engines are best suited for drivers that cover more miles per year, and drive frequently on motorways.
Enjoy a sensational and entirely new driving experience at the wheel of DS 3 CROSSBACK E-Tense with its 100% electric motor that combines power with flexibility in complete silence.
DS 3 CROSSBACK is available with an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox depending on the engine.
