Citroen DS3 convertible on the way

Citroen will manufacture a convertible version of its fashionable DS3 supermini, a source has revealed.

However, facts of the DS3 Convertible are vague. It isn't clear whether Citroen will use a metal folding roof or a fabric roof. In addition, it’s uncertain if the DS3 Convertible will have the same engine line-up as the hatch, which consists of three petrol's and two turbo-diesel engines.

Citroen has confirmed that there won't be a convertible variant of the DS3 Racing. The hot hatch is due to go on sale in the UK later on this Summer.

Prices for the DS3 Convertible have yet to be announced, but expect to pay around £2,000 over the hatchback, which would mean a starting price of roughly £14,000.
