2012 Citroen DS3 VTi DStyle Plus 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Very smart, very modern
Brakes and suspension components wear out a bit earlier than I would like and I do not drive it fast so that is strange. Everything else was maintenance expected of mileage.
Air con stopped working recently. Oh and I got a puncture recently and I know that is not the car's fault, but I wish they would give us a spare wheel! Fiddling about with the repair kit at the side of the road was a nightmare, I had never used one before. Apparently a lot of cars have these now instead of a spare!
My DS3 is red/black and looks incredible for a 2012 car. I cannot believe it is 10 years old; if you told me this car came out in only the last 5 years I could believe it.
1.6 petrol is nippy and OK on fuel. Driving is fun and the car always feels sharp. Seats are comfortable enough, but it is a little cramped inside and the armrest just annoys me for some reason; can never get the right position. Otherwise everything else is fine, the dash looks very modern also.
It is very well equipped the DStyle VTi model. Electrics and stunning alloy wheels.
If you want a modern hot hatch that is a bit different from the rest, look no further than the DS3.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The higher spec cars are well worth it, I love my DS3. Great hatchback cars in the highest trims.
