James May on the Citroen DS3
The Citroen DS was a true French goddess, so how divine (or Gallic, for that matter) is the new DS3? Le Capitain Lentement investigates...

But now what? Apparently, there are seven different trims available for the gear knob.
In truth, this new DS doesn't advance the technical art of the car by much, being a normal thing with four wheels attached to steel bits and powered by an internal combustion engine. If it were as ground- breaking today as its forebear was, it would be made from laser-formed unobtainium, and it would be able to levitate.
Then again, Citroens of old were a bit bloody minded in a French sort of way and prone to working not all of the time, so perhaps technical conventionality is what the people really want.
