Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Citroën DS3 hatchback?

The Citroen DS3’s most obvious rival is the Mini Hatchback, which outshines it for interior quality and handling, but is slightly more expensive to buy and has a smaller boot.

The Fiat 500 is a smaller car than the DS3, but equally as cheeky and hugely popular, meaning there are plenty of examples to choose from. What’s more, you can pick one up for about £1000 less than the equivalent DS3.

Overview

The fashionable Citroen DS3 certainly isn’t short on kerb appeal, but there more to it than just its stylish looks?

  • Strong engines
  • Good value
  • Low running costs
