The Experience

What’s it like to drive a DS 3 E-Tense?


Futuristic and fashionably designed inside and out, the DS 3 E-Tense is a car you will want to be in and be seen in. Diamond-tessellated displays are mirrored throughout the interior, while the eye-catching exterior features defined contours and characterful LED lights in a bold, oversized front grille.


The digital instrument display sits neatly behind the steering wheel, with enough space for handy readouts, such as remaining range and charge, sat nav directions and other information. Touch-sensitive buttons make navigating menus a breeze, with plush, soft-touch materials around the dashboard and controls.


The E-Tense is adaptable enough for motorway cruising, as well as city driving, with responsive steering and soft suspension. This combined with soundproofing gives an almost silent ride, even when driving on rough road surfaces, while a smooth powertrain makes accelerating a dream.


The 10-inch infotainment screen (7-inch in selected models) is generously proportioned and features both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity – available in selected models. Wireless phone charging ensures you’re prepared once your journey is over and smartphone mirroring helps make sure you’re connected on every drive.


The 350-litre boot is almost twice the size of a standard car, impressive for a compact SUV, with bags of space for your holiday luggage and shopping. The front seats have plenty of room for even the tallest of drivers and passengers to get comfortable. While the 60/40 split rear seats can be folded to create additional luggage space.


Recharge the E-Tense in just a few simple steps. First, plug in the charging cable and lock the vehicle to start the charge. Once finished, just unlock the car and you can safely remove the cable from the inlet and restart your travels.
