Introduction

What Car? says...

If you want to make your mark as a relatively new manufacturer, launching an impressive product in an incredibly popular market seems a good way to go about it. That’s part of the masterplan behind the DS3 Crossback small SUV.

If you’re still not familiar with the brand, DS is the ‘premium’ division of the French PSA Group, parent company of mainstream brands Citroën, Peugeot and Vauxhall.

The 3 Crossback is available with a choice of three petrol engines and one diesel, but unlike its rivals, there’s an electric version with a claimed 200-mile range on the horizon, too. That’s part of DS’s plans to make an electric version of every one of its models, starting from 2019.

Does the cosmopolitan 3 Crossback stand out from its established rivals? Read on to find out. And if you want to buy one, we can help you save some money in the process; head to our New Car Buying section to find out just how much we could save you.
