DS cars for young drivers

From: £243 p/m

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

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. 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

Your new car will be covered by our New Driver Insurance. This uses clever black box technology to help you develop your driving skills – and if you drive safely and remain claim free, you can earn an additional discount at renewal. The majority of applicants will receive free insurance, but where this is not available we will offer you discounted insurance or cashback.

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!)
