Used DS3 Crossback E-Tense Review

Price: £34,400 - £38,600

An upmarket electric SUV would seem to be the type of car which everyone is after. But the DS3 doesn’t do anything better than cheaper rivals, so you'll be choosing it for the looks alone.

“I love the way the E-Tense looks and the serene way it drives - it's so calming. But I have to admit is starts looking very pricey once you get towards the top of the range.”

“I don’t get the DS3 Crossback. It’s got an interior more self-consciously ‘stylish’ than a flock of hipsters. And there are cheaper, better-looking cars that do the same things.”

This is a rare car, so used versions are never going to be common. Dealer demos and stock cars offer the chance of a chunky discount though.

Used models

The DS3 is a pretty rare car, so there aren’t many around used either. But there were several dealers offering delivery-mileage cars with big discounts of around £4,000 of the list price. If you can find an ex-demo car with some more miles on the clock and another name on the registration document, you should expect even more off the price. 

That’s good news if you are looking for a used bargain, but it won’t help keep the values of the second-hand cars high and will ultimately make a DS3 Crossback E-Tense more expensive to own overall as it will be worth less when you come to sell.
