2014 Citroen DS3 THP 155

BMW got the small, premium hatchback ball rolling back in 2001 with the New Mini. Wind through to 2007 and Fiat added a retro vibe to the concept with the 500.

With the Mini and Fiat selling in huge numbers, Citroen decided it wanted a piece of the pie. So in 2010, it launched the DS3. It spearheaded the launch of a whole new range of posh Citroens under the DS brand, those two letters harking back to the legendary, revolutionary DS saloon of 1955.

Subsequently, the mid-size DS4 and DS5 appeared. Now the four year-old Citroen DS3 has been given a mid-life refresh.

Tim Barnes-Clay finds out if it can go head-to-head with the Fiat and Mini.
