Fancy a pocket rocket with a difference, look no further than the Citroen DS3 DSport. It's French, so you know it's going to be out there and it doesn't disappoint.
The plucky little three-door hatch screams nouveau style from every angle. You're after a compact hatch and your budget caps out at $18K AUD. Why buy a Swift when you could own one of these?
Not sold? How about 1.6-litre turbo petrol four pushing out a healthy 115kW peak power and 240Nm max torque. With a kerb weight of just 1115kg, it's enough to see the DS3 do the 0 to 100km/h dash in 7.3 seconds, Tre' fantastique!
Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the front wheels, it's the perfect daily driver. When you want to go for a weekend cruise in the hills, it has the handling chops to make you feel like you're driving a go-kart.
It may be small, but it's no toy, the car is fully equipped with features like six airbags, Bluetooth, multifunction infotainment system with six speaker sound, brake assist, ABS, Traction/Stability control, brake distribution, central locking, keyless entry and an engine immobiliser to name a few.
Sounds good, doesn't it?
