The latest DS3 Cabrio has been following in the footsteps of its multi-award winning hatchback model, earning the attention of judges at this years Scottish Car of the Year award.
The car won the ‘Drop Top’ honour for its “bold styling, sophisticated refinement, extensive personality” as well as all-round pleasurably driving experience, making the model the choice for any driver.
According to the company, the DS3 Cabrio was put head to head with a number of worthy adversaries including the Vauxhall Cascada and Audi RS5 Cabriolet. The DS3 however got the better of them - a model that was named TopGear Magazine Car of the Year in 2010 - making the choice particularly clear.
The award was met with great furor at Citroen headquarters. Marc Raven, Communications Director at Citroën UK, said that: “The DS3 line, including the fantastic Cabrio, continues to win the affections of both public and press, and this latest award is further evidence of the model’s popularity. Thanks to its class-leading space and versatility, DS3 Cabrio delivers all the fun of a drop-top with the practicality of a hatchback – we’re very proud of it. On behalf of Citroën UK, I’d like to thank the ASMW judges for this official recognition.”
Similar praise was given by Alisdair Suttie, President of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers, who said that: “The winner in our drop top category is a model which enhances the appeal of a car that has delivered a turnaround in fortunes for its maker. Style is arguably the top priority in this segment and this chic and characterful newcomer has it in abundance. There’s a choice of petrol or diesel power plus a huge degree of personalisation options allowing owners to create a summer loving drop top that’s truly unique. Moreover, this is the only five-seater in its class.”
Citroen is no stranger to the Scottish Car of the Year Awards. The brand has previously won honours in categories including ‘best Eco Car’ for their DS5 Hybrid4 as well as ‘MPV of the Year’ for their C3 Picasso. If the company continues on this path, it will certainly keep gaining these prestigious recognitions, racing past its opponents in a variety of different areas.
