Official Images And Details On The Citroen DS3 Facelift
|   Saturday, May 31, 2014
Citroen has released the first teaser of the upcoming facelift for the DS3. Preliminary information is confirmed with the model benefiting from a new set of headlamps that combine LED with halogen lights.

According to the official press release issued by the French, these new lamps are derived from the Wild Rubis and Numero 9 concepts, and are 35 percent more efficient on low beam and 75 percent in the long one compared to classical solutions.
Also, they are 20 times more long-lasting with the estimated lifetime being approximately 20,000 hours.

"Already strong on visual appeal, DS3 and DS3 Cabrio's new headlights are now more striking than ever. The LED modules have been arranged to provide a distinctive signature and the sequential indicators – a class exclusive – add further appeal", said the company in its official press release.

The interior comes with customization solutions, including a laser engraved dashboard or a screen-printed rear window. The bodywork also brings new colors, including Pearl White or Belle-Ille Blue, the latter available in the convertible version.

The engine range includes two new diesels, Blue HDi 100 and Blue HDi 120. The first offers 100 hp and has a fuel consumption of only three liters per 100 kilometers, (94 mpg United Kingdom / 78.2 mpg United States), while emitting 79 g / km of CO2, and the second guarantees an average of just 3.6 liters / 100 km, (78 mpg United Kingdom 65 mpg United States) and emissions of 94 g / km of CO2.

Those who want a new petrol unit can order the DS3 facelift with PureTech e-VTi engine of 82 horsepower associated to an automatic Efficient Tronic Gearbox transmission with five steps, ready to keep fuel drain at only 4.1 liters / 100 km (69 mpg United Kingdom / 57.4 mpg United States) and emissions at 95 g / km of CO2. All new engines, whether we are talking diesel or petrol, will comply with Euro 6 standards. Because of the use of high technology, including SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), noxious emissions are reduced by 90 percent, while CO2 emissions are cut down by as much as 4 percent.

To enhance driving experience in the city, the Citroen DS3 and DS3 Convertible received new features. From July, select versions will be available in the United Kingdom, equipped with the "Active City Brake" system.

This device is an automatic braking system that helps prevent low-speed collisions. Automatic braking is done using a short-range radar fitted on top of the windscreen, identifying slow or stationary moving vehicles which are on the road.

The usual daily maneuvers are also easier to make with the addition of an optional reverse camera on both the DS3 and DS3 convertible. For ease of use, this camera is automatically linked to the eMyWay navigation system.

The public debut of the new Citroen DS3 facelift will take place, most likely, at the Paris Motor Show, scheduled for October this year. That is also when it is scheduled to be marketed to the European market.
