Citroen UK sales bolstered in January

The latest statistics from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) reveal that through January 2013 Citroen registered 4,759 new cars in the UK market.

This is a noticeable improvement compared to the same month last year when the company achieved 4,041 new car sales.

Citroen has also increased its share in the UK market for this month, going from taking 3.14 per cent in January 2012, to taking 3.31 per cent in January 2013.

Over the past couple of years Citroen has continued to steadily increase UK demand for their range of cars, thanks in large part to the emergence of the expanded DS Line models.

The premium Citroen DS range offers customers a line-up of family cars with more equipment and lower running costs compared to previous models offered by the manufacturer.

The DS Line began with the compact Citroen DS3 supermini; a highly-customisable three-door hatchback available in three trim levels and with a road tax-exempt diesel engine alongside more potent petrol units.

The second DS model, the Citroen DS4, is aimed at the small family car market but has traces of SUV-inspired styling with a slightly raised ground height and spacious boot.

At the top of the DS range the executive-level Citroen DS5 is a large luxurious family car with a coupe-like roof. This model offers the option of a hybrid diesel-electric powertrain that keeps CO2 emissions to just 99g/km despite offering four-wheel drive and 200bhp.

The Citroen DS range will be expanded even further later on in 2013 with the arrival of the soft-top DS3 Cabrio. UK orders are open now for the Citroen DS3 Cabrio, which is priced from £15,045. First deliveries in Britain of the stylish convertible will commence on 1 March 2013.

The rest of the current Citroen model range is available to buy now from Perrys Citroen Dealerships located in Barnsley, Huddersfield and Milton Keynes.
