The phrase “German premium” all (or almost all) drivers cause the same Association: Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi. While the word “premium French brand” cause the idea to slip into place. And a little later there is something timid: “It was all about DS, Yes?”. You are absolutely right. Or to be more specific, today’s test drive dedicated to the compact crossover DS 3 Crossback.
Yes, you can argue a lot about how separated from the Citroen DS brand manages to secure for itself the status of the premium. But that’s really an original design, matrix optics, Alcantara interior with black ceiling and excellent sound insulation are important arguments that still manages.
Of course, for all this – very premium – Royal flush need to pay. But the fact is that to pay something need a bit! Over 26 thousand dollars will get you all of the benefits, and another 130-horsepower gasoline engine and eight-speed “automatic” Aisin. Of course, no all-wheel drive, but with a ground clearance of 21 cm.
And yeah, I think now should be the question, what is the catch. But no, the question (and catch) will not. And there’s plenty of details in our test.
