Citroen Announces UK Pricing for New DS3 Premium Mini, Launches Online Configurator

A few months ahead of the DS3's market launch in Spring 2010, Citroen has released UK prices and specification details as well as a dedicated online configurator for its new premium supermini. The first model from Citro├źn's new DS line, which will gradually consist of three cars including the larger DS4 and DS5, will be offered in three new trim levels, DSign, DStyle and DSport, with a choice of three petrol and two HDi diesels ranging from 90hp to 150hp.

Prices for the three-door hatchback will start in the UK from £11,700 (about €13,200 or US$18,900) for the petrol 1.4 VTi 95hp in DSign trim and top out at £18,775 (around €21,000 or US$30,300) for what Citroen describes as, "a fully specified, fully personalized" DSport model powered by the BMW co-developed 1.6-liter turbo petrol unit with 150-horsepower.

As with the BMW Group's MINI, one of the DS3's closest rivals, the French automaker will offer buyers of the car an extensive choice of customizable design and convenience options.
