Grocery Getters

My Favorite Grocery Getter, The Citroen DS3 Cabrio

Earlier this year I did a piece on SUVs and Crossovers titled Grocery Getter.  Too bad this Citroen DS3 Cabrio wasn’t in the mix then. I do like this vehicle. Fun, Sexy,Stylish. And it has that cool name.

Here is what Mike Hanlon,  founder of Gizmag (my favorite source for news of the cool) says;

“Citroen’s DS3 is characterized above all else by the sense of fun it engenders in those who drive it. It has impressed automotive journalists around the world since it was released two years ago, winning countless awards in both diesel and petrol form, for its sweet handling, spacious interior and frugality.

The DS3’s range-topping turbocharged 152 kW (204 hp) 1.6 liter engine was developed jointly by Citroen, Peugeot and BMW, and can be found in several models from the Citroen, Peugeot and MINI ranges and it’s a one of the sweetest motors in existence, having won its class in the International Engine of the Year Awards for the last SIX years running.

On top of that, the DS3’s sporting pretensions are now unquestionable, as the car won both the World Rally Championship Drivers and Constructors titles at its first attempt in 2011 and it will win both championships again this year.”

How cool is all that, huh?
