    The rear looks nice, the front is not too bad, the interior is… interesting, but that side profile! UUUURRRRGGGGHHHH.

    • uS’gedlemba

      Thise windows shouldv’e been frameless, that was the flaw with the DS3, from the side it looks like the ASX which is not good given it’s a 10 year old design.

      • TheHake

        Personally I don’t think it looks aged, it just looks ugly.

  • Bo Hanan

    That design actually annoys me. It’s like when a person drives their new car to Autozone and spends $100’s of dollars on chrome trim, fake vents, etc.

  • Momogg

    They should call it Picasso. 😀

  • StrangerGP

    Yeah it’s ugly, I’d rather have a Mazda CX-3.

  • designer_dick

    £21,550 for the cheapest version of a car with the 1.2 PureTech engine from a Citroën C3 is more than a little overpriced, and £32,450 for the launch edition is LUDICROUS.

    • uS’gedlemba

      It worked for Audi against BMW and Mercedes why not let them try their luck…it’s one ugly duckling too.

      • TheHake

        But Audi stepped up their game when they stepped up their price…

      • designer_dick

        Audi always had the substance and quality to match BMW and Mercedes-Benz, if not the brand cachet. DS has neither.

  • LOVE THE BLUE PAINT. DESIGN WISE IT LOOKS LIKE THE JAPANESE TREND OF ODD LINES, DENTS AND VENTS HAS INVADED FRANCE.

  • Marwan Abdul Hak

    Since ages the same contradiction with the French cars: very daring and courageous designs, very weak engines 🙄

  • Momogg

    I’m sorry for PSA but next Captur will eat it.

    • uS’gedlemba

      I doubt PSA will be worried about that, it’s the ugliest DS to date but I’m sure it’s intended to be a low volume seller…PSA has the 2008 and Mokka for this segment as bread and butter.
