Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

PROS
Striking styling means it stands out
Ample interior room and luggage space

Doesn't feel as nippy as its rivals

By: 
parkers.co.uk

PROS
Mainly cushy ride
Good quality interior
Hushed at motorway speeds

CONS
Relatively slow acceleration
Not as roomy as some rivals
Competent handling but not particularly fun to drive

By:

The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is a seriously stylish electric car with comfy suspension and a stunning interior but it’s let down by cramped back seats and limited electric range.

Pros
Fabulous interior
Very comfortable to drive
Plenty of personalisation options

Cons
Cramped back seats
Alternatives are cheaper…
… and have greater ranges

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Not the EV we’d recommend, but if you like the way it looks and battery-power suits your lifestyle then by all means.

Pros
Bit different to look at and sit in,
as practical as ICE car

Cons
Ride comfort,
inconsistent brake pedal,
awkward infotainment

By:

The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense offers enough range for most people, but it's far from the best electric car on sale.

Pros
Choice of trim levels
Characterful design
Fast-charging capability

Cons
Shorter range than rivals
Not a huge boot
Feels heavy
