Sun’s out, roof’s down. Go from full coverage to blazing sunshine in the city in the new DS 3 Cabrio. Totally stylish and designed for absolute luxury, the DS 3 Cabrio is a joy to drive.
The DS 3 Cabrio’s defining feature, the soft-top roof, folds down in just 16 seconds, and it’s electronic so it takes minimal effort. Sliding down on top of the boot, it doesn’t infringe on the valuable space you need for luggage.
When the roof is up, it’s easy to mistake the DS 3 Cabrio for its stylish sibling. The body styling is much the same, with an expansive hexagonal grille edged in aluminium and signature elaborate headlights with LED running lights featured as standard. Choose from a wide range of colour choices, including a stylish deep purple, red or matt black, and contrasting roof shades for the hood.
Inside, you can choose to match the inlays in the dashboard to the body colour. The cabin has a boutique feel, with round dials, glossy materials and upmarket upholstery. An integrated air freshener is included as standard, so your DS 3 Cabrio will always have a satisfying, straight-from-the-showroom scent.
There are a number of engines to choose from to suit your driving style. Those based in the city will enjoy the 98bhp or 108bhp that have a punchy performance for short trips around town. If you’re travelling further afield, the more robust 163bhp or 207bhp engines are ideal for longer drives. Unlike many convertibles, the DS 3 Cabrio is only 25kg heavier than the hatchback model, making it responsive and agile to drive. Every model is complemented by cruise control with a speed limiter, giving you a chance to unwind along the motorway.
Even the entry-level Chic option comes with a seven-inch colour touchscreen that plays host to all of the infotainment. The long list of equipment includes a DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity with music streaming and hands-free phone connectivity. It also has rear parking sensors to guide you into tight spaces. Upgrade to the Performance Line to get satellite navigation built in, or the Prestige to also add on front parking sensors.
From the Prestige trim upwards, the DS 3 Cabrio comes with Active City Brake which works when travelling up to 18mph, using sensors to detect potential hazards. As soon as it detects a hazard, it warns you and then automatically applies the brakes if you don’t. As standard, a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and a number of protective airbags are included.
