Citroen DS3 – the ConiguratorSat, 23 May 2009
The Citroen DS Inside Concept Configurator - build your own Citroen DS3
But yet another part is to involve the car-buying public, so Citroen has launched an on-line configurator for the yet to be released Citroen DS3, their small ‘Luxury’ car that was announced at the Geneva Motor Show as the Citroen DS Inside Concept.
The Citroen DS3 is going to pit Citroen against the likes of the MINI and the Alfa Romeo MiTo. Which are tough acts to take on. The MINI has become a bit too ubiquitous for its own good, but still has a strong following, and as we said when we reviewed the Alfa Romeo MiTo, the MiTo has every chance of becoming the default choice for the involved driver in this sector.

But Citroen are in with a chance. The DS3 looks fairly individual (although we’re still not convinced that the historic ‘DS’ badge should be attached to anything other than the best that Citroen can offer) and will offer something different to the competition. It has a chance of reviving some of Citroen’s quirkiness, which stood it in good stead for many a year, and it will doubtless offer a far more supple ride than either the MINI or the Alfa.
So go have a play with the Citroen DS3 Configurator. It’s not the most extensive tool in the world, and concentrates mostly on the exterior, but you can come up with some good (and some awful) combinations.
