Citroën and Ezz Elarab Automotive Unveil the DS3 Cabrio in Egypt

Citroën and Ezz Elarab Automotive Group, Citroën’s sole agent in Egypt announced today the unveiling of the DS3 Cabrio, available now in Egypt.  Building on 90 years of Citroën innovation, the DS line is Citroën’s new premium line developed to stand alongside its main range.  Symbolizing innovation, know how, styling and technology, the DS line is a further symbol of Citroën creativity and technology.

Commenting on the announcement, Eng. Hesham Ezz Elarab, President of Ezz Elarab Automotive Group of Companies stated, “Citroën’s premium DS line has quickly become a French success story, highlighting the brand’s Créative Technologie positioning.  We’re certain the latest addition, the new DS 3 Cabrio will make an impact on the Egyptian market as the DS3, DS4 and DS5 did.  As Citroën’s exclusive agent in Egypt, Ezz Elarab strives to build a lasting community of Citroën car enthusiasts as well as introduce new solutions for the automotive future.”

Like the award winning DS3, the DS3 Cabrio boasts bold styling, sophisticated refinement, extensive personalization and a thoroughly enjoyable driving experience; now with the pleasure of open air motoring.

The DS3 Cabrio’s dynamic exterior offers bold styling from the ‘floating’ two-tone roof and ‘shark fin’ B-pillar to the sculpted front-end with its distinctive LED light signature.  Inside, chrome and leather touches on the gear knob and gear lever, handbrake and steering wheel surround the driver.  The car’s high quality soft-top material also delivers standard-setting soundproofing with some of the best acoustic insulation against road noise in its class.

DS3 Cabrio’s electrically operated folding roof can be fully opened or closed at speeds of up to 120 kph.  A unique feature in this segment, this allows drivers to react to the weather without having to stop or slow down, even when they are on the motorway.  The roof fully opens or closes in just 16 seconds.  Top down driving has never been so easy.

The DS3 Cabrio also is a stand out on the road, combining driving pleasure and everyday ease of use. Nimble and energetic, the DS3 Cabrio brings the driver closer to the road for effortless cornering and exudes the feeling of having the wheels at your fingertips. Assured and dynamic, it handles the road with crisp reactions, top level control and safety.

Traveling comfort sets a new standard in the super mini segment, getting the most out of its exterior dimensions (3.95 m long, 1.71 m wide and 1.46 high) through intelligent engineering.  These design feats give owners five real seats, extensive storage space and the biggest trunk in its class at 245 liters.  All three rear occupants benefit from ample leg room, individual head rests and a completely clear view overheard.  And true to the Créative Technologie motto, the DS3 Cabrio comes standard with the latest technology such as rear parking sensors, providing drivers added reassurance when parking with the roof down.

Making no compromises on passenger safety, the DS3 Cabrio is fitted with a particularly safe braking system, including a host of standard features such as ESP, ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and emergency brake assist (EBA). Passive safety is top-level with six standard airbags.  The car comes equipped with a vigorous1.6 liter VTi engine that delivers 125HP.

The DS line currently comprising the DS3, DS3 Cabrio, DS4 and DS5 is produced in France.  The DS3 Cabrio is now available in Egypt through Ezz Elarab Automotive Group, Citroën’s sole agent in Egypt.
