New DS 3 makes a winning formula even better. We’ve designed a clean new look, improved the way it drives and given it technology relevant to everyday life. But we’ve kept that unique character to ensure New DS 3 is the automotive embodiment of Parisian chic.
New grille and lights give even more personality
We've given New DS 3 a look that's unmistakeably DS. Its bold new grille with chrome surround merges seamlessly into the headlamps. We call this DS Wings because we think it resembles a bird's spread wings. New DS 3 marks the debut of 'double wings' that encompass the headlamp units and new LED foglights. DS LED Vision employs a combination of LED and Xenon lighting technology. As well as looking striking, this generates a broad, bright beam of light to improve vision. It halves energy consumption and makes driving at night safer and less tiring.
A style all of its own
New DS 3 still has the features that created an icon and made its name synonymous with style:
- The 'floating' roof
- Contrasting bodywork and roof finishes
- 'Shark's fin' side pillar.
A new palette for personalisation
New DS 3 enjoys a refreshed selection of interior trims and finishes, a stunning new body colour (Sport Red) and a striking new shade for the roof, Topaz Brown. It's personalisation like this that enables expression through your car.
Stand-out style in the urban jungle with 44 bodywork/roof combinations, 9 roof stickers, 15 alloy wheel designs
Despite urban-friendly exterior dimensions, New DS 3 still has seating for five, class-leading boot space and a folding rear seat back. Height and reach adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel ensure everyone can get comfortable.
Enjoy a journey into sound
Our engineers have worked hard at suppressing the noise you don't want to hear from outside New DS 3. It makes every trip a chance to savour the optional audio upgrade which uses a boot-mounted sub woofer for amazingly detailed sound.
Finding somewhere to store all your odds and ends is simple in New DS 3. It features:
- A 285-litre boot, the largest in its class
- Generous-sized glove box and door pockets
- Folding centre arm rest with storage
The comfort of technology and connectivity
At DS we know that just because you're in your car it doesn't mean you should be out of touch. So we've designed New DS 3's in-car systems to be simple and intuitive to connect your phone to. The standard 7-inch touchscreen can display everything on your phone's screen. It makes using our new technology such as the MyDS app and DS Connect Box easy. And the high definition screen lets you make the most of the eMyWay satellite navigation and reversing camera (depending on the model).

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.
Whichever engine you choose, it'll take any kind of driving
All engines have generous torque reserves to give zest and flexibility that suits New DS 3 perfectly. Engine range includes:
- PureTech 110 S&S with new six-speed automatic gearbox
- PureTech 130 S&S is sporty and free revving with the lowest CO2 emissions in its class
- BlueHDi 120 S&S with a six-speed manual gearbox for class-leading power and efficiency

A great-handling car that doesn't compromise on comfort
Our engineers have worked tirelessly to ensure New DS 3 drives as well as you've come to expect. By optimising the chassis, suspension, steering and even tyres, they've engineered a car that's exciting when you want it to be, unruffled and refined when you need to relax. A new quick-shifting six-speed automatic gearbox enhances driver engagement and economy.
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.

Other electronic driver aids include ABS anti-lock brakes, with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Emergency Braking Assistance.
