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
But the real reason TopGear loves the DS3 so much is that it isn't just a fashion accessory. Behind all the slick Mini-esque marketing bluster and all the lipstick and glitter, there's a very good, confidently dynamic little car. The DS3 might look a bit ‘fashion', but when a keen driver starts to play, you realise several very important things. First, the steering is keen, fluid and precise, making for a little car that places on the road easily and goes exactly where you point it - a boon for both keen drivers and urban parkers. The power assistance is spry and communicative, carrying information without any tedious blathering about the state of the road.
