DS has added a new Performance Line trim to its line-up, adding a new range of distinctive colour schemes.

Available on the DS 3, DS 3 Cabrio, DS 4 and DS 5, Performance Line comes in two-tone black with a specific palette of body colours and new gloss black wheels.

The trim level sits between Elegance and Prestige in the DS lineup, with prices due to be from £17,900, £21,600 and £30,000 for the 3, 4 and 5 respectively.

DS says its key carmine, white and gold colours are used on door mirrors, the rear spoiler and bonnet, while the front doors get Performance Line badges.

Inside, the cars get new upholstery in grained leather and Dinamica cloth. There’s coloured stitching on the seats, door panels, gearbox, steering wheel and dashboard cap on the DS 3 and DS 5. The front seats get a DS Performance Line emblem, and Nappa leather is also available.

The DS 4 and 5 get metal cabin details and door sills, as well as LED lighting in the interior, which the 3 will also have.

The French manufacturer's latest infotainment technology also comes with this trim level, including a touchscreen sat-nav that supports MirrorLink and Apple CarPlay.

DS says Performance Line combines “GT spirit, refinement and technology”, and is available with every engine in its line-up. The trim is available to order from this week.
