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.

From there they've gone on to produce the DS3 and DS7 Crossback. We think the DS3 Crossback is perfect for young drivers looking for that extra bit of sophistication and style in their car!

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?arrow
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?arrow
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.
How does the insurance allowance work?arrow
It’s pretty simple really. Your quote will let you know the cashback amount available on your chosen car. This is the allowance we’ll pay you to put towards your insurance. We’ll pay this directly into your bank account by BACS on delivery of your brand new car!
You’re free to insure the car with any provider (we think it’s only fair!) Of course, we’d love you to choose Marmalade for your car insurance – so don’t forget to get a quote for our black box insurance once you’ve chosen your dream car. You’ll enjoy comprehensive cover, no curfews and you could earn an extra safe driving discount of up to 25% at renewal¹ if you drive well – on top of any No Claims Discount you earn!
What happens after the first year?arrow
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!)
How long until I get my new car?arrow
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
