Citroen DS3 Ultra Prestige was introduced last year at IAA. It’s now going on sale in the UK, starting from £20,700.
The Ultra Prestige is a trendy and luxurious version of the French hatchback designed mainly for fashion-obsessed women. It is the exact opposite of the Citron DS3 Racing which is a fun toy for cool boys.
The car is offered with two great engines, a THP 155 petrol and a fuel and CO2 efficient e-HDi 110 diesel with Stop & Start. The diesel version does 74.4mpg on a combined cycle and emits just 99g of CO2/km. At £20,900, the diesel is 200 quid more expensive than the petrol.
The Ultra Prestige DS3 is generously equipped with automatic digital air conditioning and a Bluetooth enabled Hi-Fi system, plus MyWay colour satellite navigation system, rear parking sensors, automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers, electrically heated and folding door mirrors and an electrochrome rear view mirror.
As for the unique features that set this DS3 apart from normal models, it comes with ‘watchstrap’ design seat upholstery in ‘Club’ leather. The front seats also sport a ‘crescendo’ colour effect that is entirely new to the automotive sector, inspired y the world of fashion. It also has ‘Alpine’ white leather dashboard, embossed with the DS signature, and ultra-thick protective mats, braided with double top-stitching in contrasting colours.
On the outside, DS3 Ultra Prestige is available with a choice of two striking body colours – Polar White and Thorium Grey – and feature a sports spoiler, dark-tinted side and rear windows and 17” charcoal-grey alloy wheels. It main feature however, is the black roof covered with DS insignia, shifting from matt to gloss as the light changes.
