Citroen DS3 Exterior

With razor sharp styling and a visually-arresting design, the Citroen DS3 is a radical take on the compact urban vehicle and a contemporary breath of fresh air for the class. Citroen’s creative talent for innovative vehicle design manifests itself on every feature of the Citroen DS3. From all angles, the Citroen DS3’s undeniable on-road presence and refreshing style is evident with stand-out elements such as the ‘shark fin’ B-pillar and sleek design of the front LED lights.

An especially cutting-edge style choice are the seven available bi-tone roof colours that match the door mirrors with chrome base and are offset by chrome side rubbing strips. There are even multiple colours for the key fobs, colour-coded according to the car.
