DS3 Black Lezard Limited Edition Brings Fashion-Inspired Equipment

DS Automobiles wants to increase the appeal of the DS3 with a new Black Lezard Edition that will launch later this month.

Priced from £19,545 ($27,045) in the United Kingdom, the special edition is limited to only 100 units, and adds a few features to the supermini, said to be “inspired by the world of fashion”.

Finished in either Perla Nera Black, Platinum Grey, Ink Blue, or Whisper Purple, it features a special ‘black reptile skin-effect’ roof, which mimics reptile skin.

The limited edition DS3 also features 17-inch black diamond-cut ‘Aphrodite’ alloy wheels, black look for the side mirrors casings with a chrome base, and glossy black A pillars as well.

Compared to the regular DS3 models made by Citroen’s premium sub-brand, the new Lezard Limited Edition benefits from extra equipment in the cabin too. The list includes the Basalt Black leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, glossy black dashboard, and special leather clutch bag/wallet. Other features include automatic xenon headlights lights, rain-sensing wipers, electrically folding side mirrors with heating function, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Powering the new DS3 Black Lezard is a PureTech petrol engine, rated at 110PS (108hp) and married to a manual transmission.

    Unveiling a new generation would increase the appeal of the DS3, it’ll soon be 10 years since its premiere. But I guess that won’t happen, they’ll probably just focus on making only crossovers and also limos for China.

    Black lezard? What’s next? White snek?
    I mean, they have to keep up with all those cool kids.

  • sidewaysspin

    The design of this car is not distinctive enough like for example in the Mini for it to be appealing to the premium market I think.

  • dufonrafal .

    DS Automobiles is not a sub-brand of Citroën, it’s a brand of PSA Group just like the other 3 : Peugeot, Citroën and Opel.

      Oh yes DS is 100% pure Citroen, same developers, same factories, same cheap quality, the only difference, 20% more expensive
