2010 Top Gear Awards: Small Car of the Year
'The DS3 is the car that will lift Citroen right out of the Happy Shopper Basket of Doom'
Posted: 08 Feb 2011
The boardroom of Citroen must be a very happy place right now, lots of hand-clasping and pointy-fingered greetings, maybe a couple of subtle high-fives when nobody's looking. For the first time in years, the product planners, engineers and designers have a proper solid-gold hit, a car that embodies everything that Citroen always promised, but so rarely managed to deliver. Citroen has the DS3, and things are looking up.
