At the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Citroën will unveil the latest advance in the DS line, DS3 Cabrio, a cabriolet version of the DS3.
At 3.95m long, 1.71m wide and 1.46 m high, DS3 Cabrio retains the hatchback’s compact and agile proportions. All the bold styling choices are retained, from the ‘floating’ two-tone roof and dynamic ‘shark fin’, to the sculpted front-end with its instantly recognisable LED daytime running light signature.
DS3 Cabrio owners can specify one of seven body colours with the folding roof available in three designs - black, Infinite blue and DS Monogramme.
With a focus on efficiency and minimising kerb weight, DS3 Cabrio is just 25kg heavier than the hatchback - most convertibles are around 100kg more than their hatchback versions. The same rigidity, strength and agility as the hatchback are retained with identical architecture for the sides and structural reinforcements around the boot. The model’s handling remains eager and pleasurable whilst maintaining the same high levels of comfort, control and safety.
DS3 Cabrio, produced at the Poissy production site in France, will be launched early in 2013.
