This thing looks awesome especially with the orange colour scheme,way more stylish than a mini,this thing is meant to be driven,not parked outside a coffee shop like the mini.
how old are you?
does everything have to be awesome?
The title of this review is misleading. This should be listed as the DS3 Racing which is distinct to the DS3.
That said, CA can you do a review of the regular variety of DS3?
Just get a Clio 200, why would you even bother with this… I wouldn’t be surprised if it had stickers on the dash that just said “FAST”…Which would obviously make it faster!
This car is awsome, but it just can’t match the Clio RS 200.
Renault Sport 4 the Win (once again)!
awesome awesome ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
If I wanted reviews from journos in the UK, I would read their websites.
I waste my time on CA for the local slant on spec, pricing and local conditions. For a car like the DS3 which is available here, this is silly…
Who cares NotTheStig? I don’t really see the what you’re complaining about. It will be almost exactly the same spec when it comes here, so this is a like a preview review. No one is making you stay here by the way…
CarAdvice has contributing writers in the US and the UK for cars that are not yet available in Australia. The ‘DS3 Racing’ is NOT available in Australia as yet.
Well, just move on then.
I think that this is a great looking car. I love my DS3, I have the 1.6HDi White edition and it is fun to drive and looks good, I can’t wait to have a drive in one of these! Fingers crossed I will get the chance!!
I think the JCW is a waste of money over the cooper S because it isn’t individual enough. This is very cool though – what will this retail at?
ps. this review says pretty much everything that Motor said about the standard DS3 (145kw roughly) softer than the clio but better all round package etc.
Wish it said at the top that it’s a car not available in Australia; wouldn’t waste the time on the review. Not a great review either. I don’t mind US and UK reviews, but if it’s a car not available or at least announced for Australia it’s a bit of a waste of time.
What a funky little car!! And the new Citroen WRCar! Better than the C4 for sure!!! Viva Le Rallye!!!!
Since we’re talking about overseas reviews, get onto the EVO Magazine website and look at Chris Harris pitting this car against its rivals. Guess which car wins…I’ll give you a hint…its French but its not a Citroen and is focused on driving and handling rather than stickers and tinsel.
Renault Clio RS 200!
Actually the Clio ranked 5th out of 20 super performance cars by Evo Mag in 2009.
But I guess some people or don’t inform them selfs or just don’t want to see it.
$90K- $177K you have to be kidding!
Focus RS, Renault Trophee and New Guilietta seem much better value!
There was an error with our pricing system this morning. It’s fixed now.
My motoring loyalties stay with the locally built vechles.But i have to say what a fantastic piece of machienery the Citroen is
Citroen DS3 (Top Gear car of the year, and small car of the year. C4 WRC seven years WRC Champion. Open your eyes Citroen is in the right direction: quallity! See the video of Sebastian Loeb, WRC test Finland 2007 (Citroen C4 WRC), put your volumebutton to a good volume, and see his drive, I don’t like Opel.
My favorite car marks are: Citroen (hydropneumatic system), Toyota(very good quality), Porsche(very quick beautiful car.
I don’t like a car where everyone in drives (Opel, VW).
its easy to see how close Peugeot and Citroen are ( i know its one company now) but looking at this and the no longer avaliable 207 GTi, there are so many shared parts and it is basically the same underpinnings just a different shell, makes sense i guess. I had been waiting for a 207 GTi upgrade version eg 206 GTi 180, but i guess the PSA generals thought it would work better in citroen badging.
Strange that Citroën are not offering the DS3 with a sunroof. I think that for a car of this size, an open roof gives a greater feeling of spaciousness.
c’est la vie and la vie is CITROEN DS3, WHOOHOO
I have just bought a citreon ds3 and still have not seen one other than mine on the road. Where are they? Am i the only person in Victoria who has one?
I’m looking at them seriously Dave Queensland here tho!
I am so happy with my DS3R. Like every second driving it:-)
