DS 3 PureTech Auto     Aournd 13 and 18 per cent of MINI and Audi A1 sales respectively are now automatics. So, it’s clear that style conscious urban drivers are placing ease of driving right at the top of their wish lists.

Its slow and jerky four speed auto accounts for 4.5 per cent of DS 3 sales, with most buyers […]

Next gen DS 3 Racing to go Hybrid

Next gen DS 3 Racing to go Hybrid   THE DS BRAND will not be drawn into a horsepower race with its premium brand rivals. Outputs will be limited to around 300bhp, and then only when they are supplemented by hybrid systems, according to DS brand boss Yves Bonnefont.
