Special edition Citroen DS3 for ’11’ plates

The introduction of the new plates will include models from designer Orla Kiely based on the stylish and customisable Citroen DS3 supermini.

All of the models will be decorated with Kiely’s signature stem or acorn designs on the roof, coloured door mirrors, stem print rear window graphics and choice of black or white 17" alloy wheels.

In total four different roof designs will be available and inside, the patterns will continue on the carpet mats and embossed, multi-coloured headrests.

Other features include leather seats and a colour contrasting dashboard to complete the exclusive feel.

All models are based on the DStyle HDi 90 manual DS3, with prices starting from £16,000 for the special edition Citroen.

This means the edition includes ABS, Electronic Stability Programme, sports suspension and cruise control to aid the driver.

Equipment on the DStyle specification includes air conditioning, front fog lights, front electric windows, interior mood lighting, chrome door handles and a leather steering wheel.

The special editions have been available to buy for over a month, but ’11’ plate models will go on sale in Citroen dealerships from March.

Only 500 of the special edition Citroen DS3 Orla Kiely Collection will be sold in the UK.
