The inimitable DS style shines out in characteristic features such as the shark’s fin, floating roof, and new DS front identity (DS Wings), sculpted like a work of art, with verticalized hexagonal grille proudly bearing the DS badge. The main new design feature introduced on New DS 3, is the double DS Wings front end, which enhances the car’s connotations of French luxury.

Advantages of DS LED Vision technology:
The 3D-effect LED rear lights on New DS 3 bring further illustration of French elegance and attention to detail.

This high-tech, high-performance light signature sets a new standard in lighting technology, with its (rectangular 3D module of 30 LEDs topped by an upper blade of 24 LEDs in each lamp). Another little detail: the DS logo is embedded jewel-like, in the rear lamps.

The Active City Brake system avoids low-speed collisions or lessens collision impact. A short-range laser sensor located above the windscreen detects obstacles, such as a stationary or moving vehicle ahead. At speeds up to 30 km/h it identifies the potential risk and communicates directly with the brake system controller to avoid collision, or reduce the impact of collision, without the driver having to operate the brake pedal. This automatic braking function slows the vehicle down, to standstill if the situation so requires.
New DS 3 has extensive safety and comfort features:
The interior fragrance function releases a subtle, pleasant perfume, at adjustable intensity, throughout the passenger compartment.
The New DS 3 HiFi system has exceptional acoustic performance, with a third channel located in the dashboard and an amplified bass unit in the boot.
