Embodying French savoir-faire for luxury automobiles and driven by an avant-garde spirit, the DS Automobiles DS 3 is the definition of a modern design that embraces the exceptional heritage of the 1955 DS brand. High-tech and efficient, the DS 3 brings elegance and character to every journey. Available in a 100% electric version, you’ll fall in love with how comfortably it drives.
DS 3 comes with several powertrain options:
100 and 130 PureTech Petrol and 100% Electric.
Created with a new platform and using innovative materials, DS 3 in its 100% electric version has increased its range, up to 402 Km on the combined cycle, becoming one of the lightest compact SUVs in its class. A partner for your quick getaways and long journeys, up to 80% of its battery can be charged in only 30 minutes.
Back-to-back double championships in Formula E enabled us to strengthen the expertise and savoir-faire of our engineers in the field of electric for the development of a new generation of highly efficient motors. Optimised aerodynamics and heat management of DS 3’s latest battery boost the performance of its E-TENSE powertrain.
DS 3 features pure lines and an intense stare which enhances its sculpted and refined character.
The new DS WINGS are an elegant link between the technological DS MATRIX LED VISION headlamps and the grille, subtly enhanced with gloss black or chrome diamond tips. Emphasised with chrome or black lacquer, these DS WINGS give the DS 3 a sharp look.
DS 3 comes with chrome door handles that fit its shape elegantly and fold out for opening.
A black lacquered bead finely highlights the rear lights and the tailgate. Adorned with the DS Automobiles signature set in polished stainless steel, it subtly dresses the rear of the vehicle.
Expertise and attention to detail, DS 3's interiors mix premium materials, high-tech elegance and attention to detail, immersing you in a comfortable and hushed interior stamped with character and modernity.
4 robust black matte exhausts for an amplified, distinctly "CUPRA" sound.
Our stylists were inspired by fine watchmaking for decorating DS 3’s controls with “Clous de Paris” embossed inserts. This demanding finish represents small pyramid-headed nails criss-crossing seamlessly.
The high quality of the materials, the distinction of the French craftspeople’s expertise and the harmony of the lines bring the interiors to life, enhanced by the unique upholstery.
From the imagination of our upholsterers and inspired by embroidery, Pearl stitching is a finish that reproduces a pattern in the shape of a pearl on the seams of the leathers in DS 3. This technique has become a DS Automobiles signature.
The 10.3” HD central screen is trimmed with a gloss finish, the digital display with elegant graphics, linked to the colour head-up display and the ergonomic controls fit perfectly into the cockpit, making reading driving information simple.
Designed to be like an auditorium, DS 3 provides an immersive and exceptionally pure listening experience. With its 12 speakers fitted into the cockpit with great care, the FOCAL ELECTRA® sound system has a precise, balanced and unbelievably rich sound.
Enjoy the latest digital experience with the infotainment system that includes connected navigation and the DS IRIS SYSTEM. This new information eco-system, that’s intuitive and can be completely personalised gives you access to every function through shortcuts on your large 10.3″ central screen. With its advanced voice recognition, it carries out your requests and makes journeys easy.
