The new DS 3 Crossback has been revealed in full ahead of its arrival in UK showrooms this May.

Priced from £21,550, the DS 3 Crossback is the second SUV to feature in the French manufacturer’s slowly-expanding range of cars.

It’ll be available initially with the choice between three petrol engines and one diesel, although an electric version is expected to arrive later in the year.

Petrol engine power outputs will range from 100hp to 150hp, while the sole diesel produces 100hp. Lower-powered versions will utilise a six-speed manual gearbox, with punchier models sending drive through an automatic transmission instead.

DS 3 Crossback The Car Expert

All models in the range get a decent standard of equipment, with base-specification Elegance models benefitting from parking sensors, keyless entry and a seven-inch touchscreen system. Elegance prices start from £21,550.

Performance Line cars get a sportier exterior design, along with seats finished in Alcantara – though prices bump up to £22,950. Upgrade to Prestige specification and customers will find climate control, automatic windscreen wipers, leather upholstery and a ten-inch infotainment system added to the car’s list of standard equipment. Prestige models start at £24,950.

Range-topping Ultra Prestige cars are fitted with a reversing camera, head-up display, matrix LED headlights and heated front seats with massage function. These command a £30,950 price tag.

They’re joined by a special launch edition – La Premiere – which benefits from 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, and DS’ full Drive Assist system, packing active cruise control and lane keeping assist. La Premiere models cost from £32,450.

The all-electric version, called the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense, will use a 100kW motor to offer 186 miles of range under new WLTP test cycles. In addition, it’ll hit 60mph in a brisk 8.5 seconds.
