Our Verdict


The Citroën DS3 is an upmarket, stylish supermini, but does it have what it takes to beat the Mini?

Not a very exciting design, especially those funny looking LEDs.

Nissan gtr is better

! ?

Maybe, but a Ferrari 599 GTO is better than that.

Any further facile statements?

Where has all Japanese design went to?

23 May 2010

the premium compact segment...

Fiat 500 ...

are you mad???

I just pointed the 500 but actually I`m pointing the premium

guys, for your health sake, and even the British joke the MINI...

returning to the piece of crap: the DS badge on this low budget Citroën doesn`t help them escaping from the ditch.

Citroën: just stick to the C5 and C6 and try to go even more upmarket, please.

Tuning wanabees and the like, just throw them to Peugeot.

oh yep, the GT-R is better... than Micra, or Note, or Juke, or... Junk

The C4 seems like a not so bad ralley car, winning most things lately. Or is it just Sabastian?

Autocar you've hit on a winning format here. I'm addicted to 90 second review.

if it's heavy, it ain't happenin'

I have driven it and found it totally boring. It's off my list.
