Citroen's upmarket DS3 light hatch can't be accused of storming the Australian market: despite price cuts and new features, just eight were sold here in June.
To generate more interest in the still-pricey DS3 (since February, it now starts at $29,990+ORC instead of $35,990), Citroen's Australian distributor Ateco is throwing two-tone leather into the bargain.
Offered specifically with the top-shelf $33,290 (driveaway) DSport variant, Ateco says the leather deal adds $2000 in value to the purchase of a new DS3.
It's a limited-time offer however, subject to availability.
Mechanically, the DS3 DSport remains unchanged, with power provided by a 115kW and 240Nm 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine.
Mated to Citroen's six-speed MCM manual transmission, the DSport lists a 0-100km/h time of 7.3 seconds and fuel consumption figures of 6.7 l/100km on the combined cycle.
Earlier this year, the DS3 DSport added Bluetooth and USB/aux connectivity to its list of standard features.
