Citroen DS3 celebrates its first birthday

The Citroen DS3 is celebrating its first birthday tomorrow with a special event at the Ferté Gaucher circuit near Paris.

The French manufacturer expects more than 200 DS3 owners to descend on the track where they will have the opportunity to test out the DS3 Racing model.

Marc Raven, Citroen UK’s Communications Director said:

“DS3 has proven to be a landmark success for Citroën, and a celebration like this is richly deserved. The reception from owners across Europe has been emphatically positive, and this event will be a real reflection of the DS3 spirit. »

Since its launch 12 months ago, the DS3 has enjoyed a vast amount of success in terms of sales and critical acclaim.

80,000 units have been sold in that time but the DS3 has been more influential than just sales figures for Citroen as it marked the launch of the premium DS line which is set to include the new DS4 and DS5 in the near future.

Citroen was often criticised for its middle of the road design and it was the DS-line that was charged with the task of improving the marque’s standing.

Joyeux anniversaire DS3!

La DS3 fête son anniversaire. La commercialisation de la compacte 3 portes avait débuté il y a un an et Citroën peut se frotter les mains. Au début de l`été 2010, quelques mois seulement après son lancement, elle totalisait déjà près de 17.000 commandes. Aujourd`hui, un an après, ce sont 80.000 clients qui ont été séduits par ses 3,94m d`élégance, ses trois finitions Chic et sa très importante offre de personnalisation.

Et pour souffler cette première bougie, ses fans se sont donné rendez-vous ce week-end en région parisienne, sous l`égide du forum DS3 Spirit et en partenariat avec Citroën. Balades, séances photos, la DS3 sera à l`honneur sur le circuit de la Ferté-Gaucher.
