DS3 Ines de la Fressange Paris - The First Special Edition Model From PSA's Newest Brand
|   Friday, January 30, 2015
Last year, during the Paris Motor Show, Peugeot-Citroen PSA officials announced that the DS brand will break with Citroen and go on its separate path. In other words, the models that were so far in the DS line will have their own logo.

Now, France's DS, the youngest name of the PSA group was put on the market along with its first model. So, we have a DS3 with a very pretentious name: the special edition Ines de la Fressange.

In the early 50s, when it was officially released as a classic, elegant and original DS, the DS name came from a French play on words.
Thus, this name has been actually an abbreviation of the word "déeesse" which means goddess. Nowadays, the name DS no longer has any connection with the old imagination or deity. Today, the DS brand comes from Different Spirit that is a different kind of approach and attitude. If you too feel so, then you'll buy a DS. And those from Citroen tried in the past with the DS to bring some special vehicles about.

The DS3 is not a new model and up to now was wearing a Citroen logo. However, the Ines de la Fressange is a new car and the Citroen logo has disappeared. This car has been presented last year in Paris as a concept, but the French have now officially launched it on the market. The name comes from a female philanthropist in the 90s, called Inès Marie Isabelle Laetitia Eglantine de Seignard de La Fressange, born in 1957, a former model and famous designer. And how could the French highlight the new brand personality if not with an edition dedicated to a resounding name in France with close ties in the fashion world?

The DS3 Fressange was even made using the designer with the same name. It has a blue exterior paint called Sporting Encore, an Onyx black ceiling, Ines Rouge exterior mirrors, and special 17-inch rims. In addition, the car also enjoys xenon headlights, LED lamps and dual exit exhaust. Also, the inside is covered in perforated leather and has aluminum trim both on the interior as well as exterior.

The new DS3 Fressange Paris will be made in a limited series. This figure has not been announced by the manufacturer, but it will be priced at 23,950 euros for the basic version.

Inside, the special edition DS3 has a dashboard Ines Rouge painted and the two headrests have a different design while the upholstery is red with contrasting stitching. Folks at DS provide the DS3 Ines de Fressange Paris in a limited series both for the hatchback bodywork as well as for the convertible variants.

In 2014, Citroen has applied a facelift to the DS3 and this special edition also benefits from these changes. The main change was made to the optical blocks. Thus, they received LEDs, while other aesthetic elements were redesigned. The interior received customization solutions which include a laser engraved dashboard or a printed rear window. Since then, the engine range includes two new diesels, Blue HDi 100 and HDi 120 Blue.
