DS cars for young drivers

DS

Originally part of the Citroen group, DS have now launched as a completely separate identity. With a nod to its fashionable French roots, DS is very much in vogue with beautifully designed and quality built cars that ooze sophistication. 

Whilst still relatively new on the scene, the DS brand are making a name for building cars that are ultra-stylish, roomy and technology driven. 

Best known for...

Citroen first announced the launch of the DS as a sub brand in 2009. The name was thought to be an abbreviation for Different Spirit or Distinctive Series. The name could also be a play on words because, in French, the car is pronounced “déesse”, meaning goddess. With their stunning good looks, it’s easy to see why this name is so fitting. 

After breaking free from the Citroen brand, DS launched the DS3 model first. It was met with huge critical acclaim winning Car of the Year by Top Gear Magazine in 2010 and Best Supermini four times in a row by the JD Power Satisfaction Survey UK. 

This sleek little city hatchback looks and feels luxurious and simply radiates style. It’s got plenty of room inside so you get an irresistible blend of class mixed in with essential practicality. And when you throw in the huge amount of kit that DS seems to do so well, you can see why the DS3 is proving to be so popular with many younger buyers.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor? Plus Icon

A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.

Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Allianz, one of the largest insurers in the UK.

Will I need to have a black box in the car? Plus Icon

If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
