Parkers overall rating: 3.8 out of 5 3.8

This latest version of the DS 3 Cabrio feels more grown up than its predecessor and that’s largely down to the uplift in interior quality. Fit and finish has improved and the cabin feels more plush and sophisticated inside.

The centre console is less cluttered too with fewer buttons and controls littering the dashboard. The remaining controls, switches and dials feel of good durable quality and are chunky and modern in appearance.

Depending on the trim you choose, the decals and black gloss inserts will help lift the cabin further.  Navigating around the seven-inch colour touchscreen system is easy too and the driver’s seat and steering wheel is easily adjusted to find a comfortable seating position.

  • Stiff suspension
  • Restricted room in the rear

The DS 3 Cabrio is overall a very comfortable car: the seats are supportive and of good quality.

The ride quality is on the firm side and how much of the lumps and bumps in the road you feel will depend on the size of alloy wheels you pick.

In the front there’s plenty of space to stretch out over long journeys and headroom is very good.  

The doors do not open as wide as we’d expect either which could make getting in and out of the rear seats a bit of a challenge for adults.

Standard features like cruise control and air-con will make life easier out on the road, while the integrated air fresher will keep things smelling nice in the cabin.
