Following yesterday's teaser and this morning’s leak, Citroën has officially revealed the DS3/DS3 Cabrio facelift.
Both of them have received a new set of headlights combining LED and xenon modules with sequential indicators, derived from the Numero 9 and Wild Rubis concepts. These headlights are 35 percent more energy efficient in dipped mode and 75 percent in high-beam mode compared to conventional halogen headlights and they also last twenty times more, boasting a lifetime of around 20,000 hours.
Besides new headlights, the DS3 range has also gained Euro 6-compliant Blue HDi 100 and Blue HDi 120 engines which not only have improved the supermini's performances but they also are more fuel efficient. The lesser version can return up to 78.2 mpg US (94 mpg UK or 3 liters / 100 km) with 79 g/km of CO2 whereas the more powerful unit will do 65 mpg US (78 mpg UK or 3.6 liters / 100 km) with 94 g/km of CO2.
Select markets are also getting a Euro 6-compliant PureTech e-VTi 82 ETG that can do 57.4 mpg US (69 mpg UK or 4.1 liters / 100 km) and 95 g/km of CO2. This engine works in combination with an automated-manual five-speed Efficient Tronic Gearbox (ETG) equipped with a creep function.
Citroën is extending the DS3's customization possibilities by adding a laser-etched dashboard strip as well as a screen-printed rear window. The models can now be painted in a fresh hue called Pearl White while the cabrio also receives a Belle-Ile Blue color. The fixed roof version has been fitted with new 17-inch diamond-cut alloys but only for select versions.
