Long termer report: Life's a little sweeter in the DS3

Tom Webster

The little DS3 has been with us for a couple of weeks now, and I have finally managed to prise the keys out of Nic's hands to get a prolonged run in it.

I, like Nic, am initially very taken with the small Citroen, particularly with the looks. But as an all male office we are aware of the fact that this might not be the most masculine car around.

Admittedly the paintjob is partly at fault for this– white with a red-wine coloured roof was never going to be the most butch combination – but really we only have ourselves to blame for picking that combination in the first place.
