The Citroen DS3 Coupe is a vehicle that you will either love or hate. Those that want a sporty looking ride with a ton of safety features and nice handling who are willing to compromise a little on performance will like this car. Some might say that his car is more of a fashion accessory than a motor vehicle. These days, there is nothing wrong with wanting to look good, whether it be what you are wearing or what you are driving. If you look good, then you feel good. In today's stressful world we all need a bit of TLC and the Citroen DS3 Coupe is the car that will enable you to perk up your spirits every time you open up the door.
Many people forget that Citroen is the world's fourth largest manufacturer, when it comes to cars and that they have been consistently revered for the work that they put into the design and technology when producing top quality cars at affordable prices. However, some might say that Citroen had lost their way a little bit. This sort of comment of course, comes from their competitors. That being said, Citroen, as a company takes criticism serious, no matter where it comes from. They have now re-addressed their designs and are careful to ensure that they use the latest technology available on the market.
The 2012 Citroen DS3 Coupe is powered by an inline-4 engine that spews out horsepower at 6,000 rpm. It tops out at 114 mph and can achieve zero to 60 mph in 10.6 seconds, which clearly is sluggish, but the car was not designed for racing. What is special about this vehicle is that you have your choice of three petrol and two diesel options so you do not have to compromise style or handling to be environmentally friendly. It is estimated to return approximately 37 mpg in the city and 59 mpg on the highway, which is pretty hard to compete with.
There are plenty of safety features to be appreciated on the Citroen DS3 Coupe. Just a few of these include six airbags, reinforced structure, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, emergency braking assist that prevents wheels from locking in undesirable conditions and electronic stability program to prevent skidding around corners, just to name a few. Also, it was given a five-star rating by the Euro NCAP safety test, which is something to be proud of!
