New Connected Chic trim level for DS 3

Features styling and technology updates


DS has announced a new Connected Chic trim level for its DS 3 model. Positioned between the Chic and Performance Line trims, Connected Chic features styling updates and the infotainment upgrades.

The ageing DS 3 remains the most popular model in the DS line-up, with over 400,000 sold worldwide and nearly a quarter of those in the UK.

The new trim level’s ‘chicness’ comes in the form of 17-inch alloy wheels, LED front fog lights, tinted windows and automatic air conditioning. Satellite navigation and a seven-inch colour touchscreen with Mirror Screen, MirrorLink and Apple CarPlay takes care of the connectivity.

The Contrast Pack consists of a two-tone paint finish. This sees the five body colours – white, red, green, black and pearlescent white – are paired with a black roof and door mirrors.

A range of petrol and diesel engines are available and can be paired with either manual or automatic transmission, along with stop-start technology. The DS 3 received a when it was last tested back in 2009, but times have moved on a lot since then.

Connected Chic costs £900 more than the Chic trim, but DS claims that it adds £2,000 worth of additional equipment to the model which is set to arrive in UK showrooms soon.
