Citroen “DS3 Inside” Concept
This is pretty much the car that will be sold in Europe next year.
So that is what the new DS is about. Just a name for fancy versions of their cars.
This DS3 model is based on the upcoming redesigned C3. And it doesn’t look like a DS at all.
Maybe the C5 based DS5 will be a bit closer to the legend.
I’m not sure I understand why this is called DS3 and not C3 Coupe…
Just another weird/lame idea from the marketing department, I guess….

After looking at it for a while-I have to disagree with you. I think that Citroën gets that the DS isn’t about being retro-it’s about being avantgarde with some cues from the original DS (Headlights, roof,
rear section. It’s Classy and I think that it could work. Citroën is capable of some amazing cars, but I think they don’t get the respect they deserve because they also sell lower end cars and in the UK at least they’re seen as a budget brand. So, by launching the “DS”sub-brand, Citroen can go head to head with other stylish sub-compacts as the Mini, Alfa MiTo, etc… I really hope it-s a success,
I wonder what the interior looks like!
Looks like a “Straight Guys” version of the Mini Cooper.
I like it but it obviously a Mini wannabe. It looks too much like the Mini.
mini competitor obviously. only better it’s french
Finally! A citroen design which hasn’t make me puke.
even tho I *love* this car and would take it over any Mini even at the same price (or a bit more!);
I hope the DS models go a bit further “into the future” with their styling…
…this is just a bit “too normal”
They should have made a lux sub-brand instead of havign it under the Citroen name…this seems like their version of Lexus….with still using the “Toyota” name…although Japan themselves just started doing this for their own country.
Where are the roof-mounted rear turn-signals that original-DS afficionados surely expect?!
i read the DS models will get air suspension…
Like everything except the front of it, its too busy.
I think they were inspired by the Ford Flex.
