Red interior and exterior tweaks for the Citroen DS3 Red special edition

The Citroen DS3 Red special edition has been unveiled. Based on the mid-range DS3 DStyle and range-topping DS3 DSport trim levels, the Red model adds extra equipment and a Red Touch interior and exterior pack.

The DS3 Red models are available in white or - for an extra £480 - metallic black, and all cars feature a contrasting red roof and door mirror caps. The front grille and Citroen chevrons are also finished in red, and the alloys are painted in either white or black to match the body colour.

Inside, the DS3 Red models include a large swathe of gloss red across dashboard and around the door handles.

The DS3 DStyle Red models include Citroen’s Connect Signature pack as standard, which includes Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and extra speakers for the stereo.

DSport Red models also benefit from the Connect Signature pack as standard, and also get automatic headlights and wipers, rear parking sensors, electric door mirrors, an auto-dipping rear view mirror, interior mood lighting and a front central armrest.

The Citroen DS3 DStyle Red version can be had with a 120bhp petrol or 90bhp diesel engine, costing from £15,655 and £15,855 respectively, and £805 more than the regular DS3s that they’re based on.

The DS3 DSport Red comes with a choice of 155bhp petrol or 115bhp diesels, priced from £17,780 and £18,060 – and £730 or £810 – more than the regular models respectively.

All models come with six-speed manual gearboxes and are on sale now.
