FIRST DRIVE – 2023 DS3 Opera E-TENSE – Much to like ! | 4K

Here is my first drive of the all brand-new 3 Opera E-Tense all electrical hatch. Eccentric styling and a lot of things to like!

New 3 is priced from ₤ 25,900 (Complete rates below) The line-up comprises four trim levels: Performance Line, Performance Line+, Rivoli and Opera.

New DS 3 is powered by a series of powertrains, consisting of the all-electric E-TENSE variant that uses a range of as much as 250 miles on a single charge (WLTP). New DS 3 is likewise offered with a choice of two PureTech petrol engines in the form of the PureTech 100 and PureTech 130. Depending upon the engine there is an option of a six-speed handbook transmission or eight-speed automated gearbox.

Including bold brand-new design, the exterior of the New DS 3 has been upgraded to provide a new dynamism and sensation of solidity, while maintaining the brand name's hallmark beauty. The interior benefits from luxurious materials including Alcantara ® and Nappa leather, while making use of craftsmen methods have been utilized in the distinctive Watchstrap leather finish, pearl stitching and concealed joints.

New DS 3 also presents brand-new premium innovation to the sector, including the DS IRIS SYSTEM currently seen in the larger DS 4. The complete HD 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system is supported by over-the-air updates and includes the IRIS personal assistant with natural voice recognition plus wireless Apple CarPlay ™ and Android Auto ™ smartphone connectivity.

    I’ve only ever driven my EV in one pedal mode as I find it removes all stress from motoring, even in congested traffic. I agree that the DS looks like a high quality product.

      My mot guy commented having freed the rear brake callipers on my wife’s 12 year old Freelander that he’s having to do a lot of EVs as the brakes don’t get used.

    Peugeot 208 in a posh frock, with a much nicer interior. Like the look of DS as a brand. Nice review Ped.

    Just looked it up… DS3 Opera starts at £41,700 (£650/mth)…. I think that is just too much! I have a Citroën E-C4. Top model is around £34,000…. It offers more space, similar design language, same battery & power…. Yet way cheaper. I am very happy with my car overall, on a day to day basis. On a long run, it’s brilliant & easy to charge. What I would definitely NOT do is £8,000 more, more for a smaller car.

      @Petrol Ped  I just went to the DS Web site. It’s easy to use and immediately offers finance and monthly figures. Of course there are deals to be done. On average the E-C4 is around £120/mth cheaper. Unless it is a leasing deal… then the prices would be closer. But I still end up with the same question. Why pay more for something smaller? Especially as DS3 is hardly a super mini DS1

    Maybe not in real life but it looks huge compared to the old one, seems much taller in particular!!! Great video Ped as always.

    I’m always surprised by the number of options that modern cars come in, can’t believe it’s really necessary.
    Not like the old days when it was base model, luxury and GT?? (if you were lucky!)

    This makes the mini range looks embarrassing….😅
    Although tbf battery tech is moving on very quick so new mini I’m sure will be similar range to this.
    Great French accent.Tres Bien.😅

    Great video Ped as usual. I’d love to see what one of those is like as six months of driving it in Paris

    Good one Pete, never been a fan of Citrone/DS but have to say that does look a good alround offering

    Had experience with the other DS models but that place to open the boot is a great way of getting your hands dirty as it gets covered in mud

    More of these type of EV is what the market has been crying out for. Enough already of the mega fast, mega large and mega expensive SUVs already 😂

    I’d like to know dimensions and price of basic model. Will it fit in my garage ? Which is small. I don’t need motorway features, heads up, lane keep etc. there are no motorways.
