THE final link in the new-look DS chain will be put in place next month when a revamped DS 3 is released.

Since the DS marque became a standalone brand away from its Citroen roots the company has already refreshed its DS 5 executive flagship and the DS 4 hatchback.

Now it's the turn of the smaller DS 3, which of the three models has proved the most popular and has become a good selling alternative to the likes of the MINI.

The new car features a revised nose incorporating the DS-style grille as well as plenty of personalisation options inside and out for both the hatch and the cabriolet models.

Pricing and full specification details are still to be announced although DS has revealed that the new line up will feature five petrol engines including a 208bhp performance turbo and two diesels, one with emissions as low as 87g/km.

Inside, the cockpit has been updated with fewer controls and now comes with a seven-inch touchscreen which will operate most of the onboard functions.

New connectivity systems are fitted allowing hook-ups to Android and Apple devices and the car will also be fitted with parking sensors and a rear-view camera.
