  • Around the Driver Seat

    
The car is easy to drive and easy to use. Not too many buttons and space to put things in the car. Most of these can be hidden away when I park the car. My iPhone connects by bluetooth and the phone works well in the car by handsfree. All works really easily

  • Rest of the Interior

    The back is really small, but I can still get 4 people in the car at a squeeze!

    Overall:

    4/5

  • Driving Experience

    The car is easy to drive in the city. I don't use it much but when I do it is easy to drive and park. It can be noisy when I drive on the motorway, but i don't do this too much.

    Overall:

    4/5

  • Fuel Consumption

    The car says that it does 45mpg. I don't have to fill it up often and when I do it doesn't costs too much.

    Overall:

    4.5/5

    What do our members say in their Citroen DS3 reviews?

    The Citroen DS3 has made a big impact on the car market in the UK. It’s a stylish 3 door car with signature vertical LED DRL’s (Daytime Running Lights) and a vast range of colour combinations and graphical options. It has given Citroen a big boost and made it cool again. The original DS from the 60’s was a stylish high tech car with turning headlights and special Citroen suspension. I think everyone was surprised when Citroen brought back the DS name for a small car but it seems to have worked well and been a successful merger of historic and modern style and technology

    Peugeot 205 reviews

    Launched in 1983 the Peugeot 205 came out of nowhere and slotted perfectly into a niche no one had spotted. The styling was exceptionally good and even today the car still holds its own against modern designs. However this was not all. The interior space was great for such a small car and the driving dynamics and light weight made the car interesting to drive even with some of its smaller engines. It was one of the first mainstream cars in the UK to come with a diesel engine option, and what a great diesel it was too, quiet and powerful, and helped start the UK’s love of diesels.

    The car was never facelifted. Despite this the 205 was still winning reviews in the early 90’s famously it beat the brand new Ford Fiesta in a motor test in 1991.

    The real claim to fame for the 205 however were the GTi’s launched in the mid eighties. Initially the GTi came with the 1.6l (115 bhp) engine and later on it came with a 1.9l (130bhp) engine making the car nimble, quick and great fun. It, along with the Volkswagen GTi of the time, created the perfect fun GTi, something todays GTi’s are still trying to recapture.

    Renault 5 reviews by real owners

    First launched in 1972 the Renault 5 was a radical new small car from the French company. The 5 was seen as huge step forward for small car design. Spacious, 5 seater with a large hatchback and folding rear seats to give it a huge load carrying capacity even compared to some of its bigger bothers. Independent suspension all round gave the car good road comfort even if it was a bouncy at times. Initially a 3 door car, in 1979 Renault launched a 5 door version with the same wheelbase and overall length. The first time this had been done in this segment.

    An all new version was launched in 1984. This had a transverse engine for the first time. The interior was upgraded and the exterior was modernised. The best loved of the new Renault 5 was the GT Turbo which had amazing performance in the dry. The Renault 5 sold well until it was replaced in 1990 by the Clio.

    The Volkswagen Golf has been declared to be ‘the only car we really need’. Is that correct? to be honest probably yes. The Golf was launched in 1975 as a direct replacement to the hugely successful Beetle. It was a hard act to follow. Rather than simply updating the Beetle, the Golf was an all new car, in its way almost as radical as the Beetle. It was based on a two box design, quite radical for the time, creating a 2 or 4 door hatchback.

    Today this is very common, but back in the 70’s it was new and unique. The Golf has evolved over the years gently becoming larger and more rounded. It has also lead to a vast array of other cars based on the same platform, including the VW Scirocco, Audi TT, Audi A3 and a number of other cars from the VW group.

    In 2014 there were 75 thousand Golfs registered in the UK making it the 4th biggest selling car in 2014. There are also just over 1 million Golfs on the road in the UK making it the 5th most popular car on the road.

    The Ford Ka was launched in 1996 bringing a new ‘super Mini’ to the Ford range. It was a low cost compact car which had striking exterior looks and a stylized interior. The car was based on the Ford Fiesta platform. The Ka is classic small city car, but its interior was cheap and the exterior was not to everyones taste. However, it sold well and was usually a best selling in the compact city sector.

    Mini Classic Reviews

    The Mini Classic is regarded by many as being the second most influential car ever, behind the Model T Ford. Designed by Sir Alex Issigonis in the mid 1950’s it was first launched in 1959. The Mini was a small, 2 door, economical car, front wheel drive with a transverse engine. Quite unique for its time, this layout allowed the car to be smaller and yet still have a large passenger space compared to the rear wheel drive, longitudinal engines of most cars at the time. At launch the Mini was sold as an Austin and as a Morris, later it became a marque in its own right and later still reverted to be an Austin Mini and then a Rover Mini. The car was built right through until 2000 when production stopped. In 2000 BMW sold Rover but retained the MINI marque.

    There were at total of 7 generations of MINI manufactured between 1959 and 2000. During this time 5.3 million MINI’s were produced. In 2001 BMW produced the new MINI which was completely new but still carried the look and feel of the original but in a much more contemporary way.

    The MINI car was sold under a huge number of different brands, models and sub brands. These included Morris, Austin, Mini Minor, Austin Seven, Mini Cooper & Cooper S, Wolsey, Riley, Mini Traveller, Mini Clubman. Whilst many of these were different to the standard mini they all used the same basic structure.
