Much to like, but the crashy ride stops it being the bestread the full model review
This sporty trim level isn’t cheap and is difficult to recommend because the only upgrades it gets over Connected Chic are style-focused, including different 17in alloys, a spoiler and some light DS Performance badging.
This four-cylinder 1.6-litre diesel engine is a fine choice, providing decent pace, good refinement and incredible fuel economy. Sub-100g/km CO2 emissions are the icing on the cake, but in a sporty little car like this we can’t help thinking that the lower list price of a DS 3 with a petrol unit is a better bet. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard.
