DS will enter the highly competitive small premium SUV market in 2019 with the Citroen DS3. Official publications show what the 2019 Citroen DS3 will look like next year, against the Audi Q2, MINI Countryman and Volkswagen Roc continues. The car will be available with three-cylinder petrol engines and four-cylinder diesel engines as well as with a 100 kW all-electric model, the E-Tense.
When it comes to personalization, DS is great: in addition to the six interior styles, the 2019 Citroen DS3 offers ten exterior colors, ten-wheeled styles and three different roof colors. A complexity that other car manufacturers have not achieved.
2019 Citroen DS3 design and attention to detail is where this French crossover really sparkles. The interior is incredibly futuristic, down to details like the gear lever. There are no fewer than six trim levels, each with a distinctive look and high quality materials. Every part looks expensive and feels expensive, and there is no electronic device on the market with an equally well-designed interior.
The 2019 Citroen DS3 will be available with petrol engines with 100, 130 and 155 hp and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel with 100 hp. The E-Tense electric model comes at a later date and has a 100 kW electric motor and a 50 kWh battery. It is expected that the range is approximately 200 miles and the E-Tense reaches a speed of 0-62 miles per hour in 8.7 seconds.
The 2019 Citroen DS3 e-tense, which costs almost 40,000 Euros without discount, will be launched in mid-2019. It will directly compete with the aging BMW i3 and will be significantly impacted by the more powerful but deeply flawed Tesla Model 3, which is currently being sold in the US market for over $ 49,000 (the promised entry level $ 35,000 is a fiction).
