Citroen launched its new premium brand in 2009 with the DS3, a very sporty and premium supermini that competes with the BMW Mini and Audi A1. The DS3 made quite an entrance by featuring in Pixie Lott’s music video of her track “Broken Arrow”, it was the first car to be part of a product placement campaign in a UK music video.

In 2010 the DS3 further strengthened its place in the premium supermini sector by being named Car of the Year by Top Gear magazine. There are a total of five engine options for the DS3 including two ultra fuel efficient diesels. All the petrol engines are nippy and lively; the smallest is a 1.4 litre that has 94 bhp, followed by a 118 bhp 1.6 litre and the range topping turbo charged 1.6 litre that has 154 BHP. The diesel range consists of a 1.6 litre turbo diesel that comes in either 91 or 110 bhp form.There are a total of five engine options for the DS3 including two ultra fuel efficient diesels.
