Car Test What’s in a name? The Citroën DS

The Citroën DS3 has broken free to become DS 3, but though the marque may have altered, the car is as great as ever.

So, DS 3 Crossback is a new compact SUV, combining refinement and advanced technology. This vehicle has always had a striking design and we felt that it stands out as modern and sophisticated. We liked the flush fitting door handles, which seem to magically appear when you need them, helping to maintain the smooth, curvaceous silhouette of the DS 3 Crossback. It’s the daring design of this car which really catches your eye and we particularly admired the large alloy wheels.

Out on the open road the new three-cylinder petrol engine delivers power with a subtle responsiveness and as this is a compact and light- weight SUV the drive is controlled and exciting. As we climbed into the cabin we noticed a huge range of technical flourishes, including Mirror

Screen comprising Apple CarPlay or MirrorLink for Android phones, which provide seamless compatibility with smartphones. And there are thoughtful design elements, such as the multi-media holders, which fit neatly to the back of the front head restraints, helping passengers to stay entertained.

Under the new Worldwide Harmonised Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), which define a new global standard for determining levels of pollutants and emissions, fuel consumption and electrical range, the DS 3 scores extremely well, which means it’s not only an exciting, comfortable and brilliantly modern vehicle, it is also working to minimise the impact of motoring on the environment.

The DS 3 is available to buy from as little as £220 per month. For full details visit or call 0330 021 3020.

Packing a Punch – The Peugeot Boxer

Out on the road the Boxer really works with you, using a range of Drive Assist technology, such as Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation, Smart Beam Headlights, Active Safety Brake, Distance Alert System and Lane Departure Warning System.

The Boxer is surprisingly nimble across rough terrain and heavy, dirty load, even when fully laden, and this highly capable van has constantly evolved to anticipate the needs of business, with optimised load door mechanisms to ensure their durability, a reinforced structure for acoustic comfort and wide load access.

There are excellent opening angles of between 96° and 270° for easy loading and unloading, swing doors of up to 2.03m in height which create best-in-class load width of 1,42 mm. The rear load sill is among the lowest on the market, at between 493 and 602 mm, depending on whether you opt for the pneumatic self-levelling suspension.

We recently testes the Peugeot Boxer van 335 L2H2 HDi 130, a hugely capacious and efficient commercial vehicle from Peugeot, which can drive your business forward whilst taking better care of your wallet and the environment.

The new Boxer is fully compliant with the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, and it’s very comfortable for a working vehicle, we liked the newly designed driver’s seat with armrest, lumbar support and under seat storage. It also comes with and excellent integrated satellite navigation system, air conditioning and a handy USB socket.


At the top of the range the Boxer offers some of the biggest load capacities on the market, offering up to a huge 17 cubic metres of space. The driver’s cabin, as we’ve mentioned, if luxurious and comfortable, housing a great 5" colour capacitive touchscreen and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The touchscreen displays your apps the way your phone does and it allows two phones to be connected at the same time. For a comfortable, spacious and highly efficient commercial vehicle we recommend you take a closer look at the Peugeot Boxer.
