Citroen has introduced a new DS3 special edition that’s guaranteed to make heads turn. Yes, the DS3 Pink is official.
The news comes a month after we speculated on the arrival of a pink DS3 after seeing a pink DS3 concept at Clothes Show Live.
Fortunately, the DS3 Pink special edition isn’t actually pink. It’s black or silver, but comes with various pink bits – including the roof and door mirrors. The wheels escape the pink treatment and match the colour of the bodywork… phew!
Inside there’s more pink, with a rather bright fuchsia dashboard. Even the gear knob gets a splash of pink.
The DS3 Pink is based on DStyle and DSport versions of the DS3, and is available with a choice of engines.
Prices start at £15,675 (just £300 more than the standard model) for the DStyle Pink with the 120hp VTi petrol engine. This comes with the usual DStyle kit plus 16-inch alloys and an upgraded sound system with extra speakers.
The DS3 Pink DSport starts at £17,800 with the sporty 155hp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, rising up to £18,075 for the 115hp e-HDI diesel engine. This comes with 17-inch alloys and the ‘City Signature’ pack which adds automatic headlights and wipers, rear parking sensors, heated and electric folding door mirrors and a front central armrest.
Citroen dealers are now taking orders for the DS3 Pink, with deliveries starting soon.
