In 2009, the Citroën DS3 was officially produced by Citroën, the known French maker of automobiles. This was first a concept car named Citroën DS Inside, which was shown in February 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show. Yet, despite being created under the same concept, the DS3 bears little resemblance to the DS Inside.
This compact car is available as a two door convertible and as a three door hatchback, providing consumers with a multitude of choices to satisfy their own liking. It was featured in the music video of Pixie Lott’s What Do You Take Me For, which makes it the first car to have a product placement in a British music video.
In 2011, the DS3 was redesigned to create a limited edition model. This version is colored brun Hickory with a dark brown shade. The body, roof colors, and most of the exterior can be personalized by the consumers to suit their own tastes, making it even more ideal for the buyers. The DS3 is a supermini car that rivals the Audi A1, Mini Hatch, and Alfa Romeo MiTo, all of which are hatchback superminis. Citroën DS3 is named as the Car of the Year in 2010 by Top Gear Magazine, giving it superior recognition for its sophisticated design and features.
