DS3

What once was part of Citroen, the DS3 has now been re-branded and given a makeover. It’s a joy to drive and with its smart good looks, you’ll be the envy of your friends.

If you’re after a stylish looking hatchback on a budget then this could be the car for you. Best of all, you can pick up a brand new DS3 with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.

Reasons to love the DS 3

French Flair Plus Icon

With its smooth, clean lines and rounded edges, the DS3 is true to its French roots looking classy and chic. It’s a fun sporty drive that has responsive steering, good grip and a sturdy body. It’s a spritely drive and handles well so you’ll have no problem ducking in and out of traffic in town (safely of course!).

The interior is upmarket and comfortable with some nice quality finishes.

Big on boot Plus Icon

The DS3 is only available with 3 doors. This gives it a sleek looking exterior but does hinder the space on the back seat a bit, so your taller mates may not want to ride in the back for long journeys. The boot however is a decent size, rivalling most other super-minis on the market. You’ll have no problems loading your camping gear, shopping or luggage into this space.

Some decent kit Plus Icon

If it’s tech that you’re after, then this car will serve you well as there’s plenty that comes as standard and its pretty luxurious as you will see. Cruise control, six airbags, air-con, a tyre-pressure monitoring system and a touchscreen display in the console housing some modern technology including Apple CarPlay. Premium models offer extras like parking sensors, satnav and larger alloy wheels.

Five stars for safety Plus Icon

Euro NCAP awarded the DS3 a maximum five star rating for safety with an 87% score for adult occupant protection score. Every version is fitted with 6 airbags and electronic stability control. There’s also the nifty Active City Brake system which automatically applies the brakes if it detects a possible head on collision when the car is travelling up to 20mph.

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!)

How long until I get my new car? Plus Icon

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.
