It is just a car that blends into the mush.

Uncool.

I've driven a rental:

It's just a C4 trying to look/act cool and failing.
(Driven the C4 too, not much in it for me.)


All of which is by-the-by because when it comes done to it, it's a Citroen.
A modern Citroen and they will never, ever be cool. Apart from in the UK where
people are blind to the staggering uncoolness of them.

I think you are a bit sweeping in your generalisation there Nev

Perhaps they are bought by the sort of people who want 'an car', dont care what it is as long as it does the job and there is a good deal on it at the time of purchase

I read through all those comments, not sure where it was said it's a bad or expensive car? I'm sure people do buy them and for good reason, in fact it's probably an 'OK' car (coming from me and my dislike of French cars) but they are not cool, which I think was the point.

Nah. The DS3 is a cool little car. It's modern, and a bit different. That, on the other hand, has just been made ugly as an alternative to boring.

But it's interesting compared to some cars of that size. Not interesting enough to justify having rear door windows that don't wind down.

Well, I think it's well designed but still uncool.

Seriously? Does it think it's a Lamborghini? That might also explain what looks like negligible rear visibility, again in the name of "styling".

Funny-looking little diesely French car = uncool
Million-megabyte images used in the first post of this thread = deduct one grade, seriously uncool!

Uncool. Looks like a cross between a Honda Civic and the worst blob on wheels, the old C4 Picasso.

Looks much better in real life & the interior has a real quality feel to it, but after the DS3 it looks very ordinary. It's been heavily criticised for its dynamic qualities - hard ride, dull handling. Nothing about it says "buy me" to me.

Maybe trying to fill a tiny, practically non-existent niche? Comfortably outsold the Giulietta in 2013 in the UK, though, according to "How Many Left". (Please don't misinterpret that last comment, it's just an observation, no malicious intent.)

I think it's quite richly detailed and I'd presume it drove comfily but if not it's wrongly styled . The volumes might be helped by deals that Citroen go for like currently £4500 towards deposit and three years free servicing and that's before you've gone through the showroom door!

See Alfa Romeo!

Putting a driver's footrest in a car will even get the great British public to pay for
a tarted up Citroen.

Uncool.

They fancy themselves as having created a cool sub brand with DS. Setting out with the intention of being cool is virtually a guarantee it won't be. It isn't.

I don't think it's awful looking though it doesn't appeal to me, if that makes sense.

It'll be bought by people who still wear diamond patterned Pringle sweaters from Rochdale who tell everyone they live in Bamford.

Bit of local humour there that might be lost on the larger population. There is a hint of Farah-man to it though.
