Motoring: Citroën DS, an icon since 1955


MOTORING CITREON Falling for… the goddesses!
3457! A code for cracking a safe? Not at all. The numbers designate the DS: DS3, DS 4, DS 5 and DS7.

The DS3, unveiled in 2010, is a city slicker with infinite customizations. Fun and safe, it surprises with an unusual interior. Connected and richly endowed, it has gasoline and diesel engine blocks providing 75, 82, 99, 110, 115, 130, 150 and 208 hp. It comes in sedan and can be opened with a sliding canvas – it is distinguished by its large wide-opening doors, overall very attractive comfort and flawless handling.

The DS4, marketed since 2011, has been also a Crossback since 2015. Combining chrome and plastic, it blends with elegance the customization of the roof and the shells of the mirrors with the colour of the bodywork. A compact and sporty sedan, the DS4 is original since it offers five doors opening and five genuine seats. Its roundness, its impressive wheel arches and its engines of 130 and 165hp in Eurosuper and its 115, 120, 130, 165 and 180hp fuel oil will seduce fans of chic and speed.
