21fbe2b1-8d56-40ab-9c73-b4a9309346d2Since its launch in the spring of 2010, DS 3 has become an icon, the vehicle of choice for more than 320,000 customers worldwide. True to the DS brand strategy of continuous product evolution, DS 3 is now available with a new six-speed, latest generation automatic transmission, for an even more comfortable drive & smoother gear changes. The new PureTech 110 S&S EAT6 auto versions also deliver improved CO2emissions, down by more than 40g/km.

4338148a-a561-45e0-8028-291e753bc3eeFor DS Automobiles – the premium brand launched by the PSA group in 2014 – sales success and vehicle appeal go hand in hand with continuous improvement. DS 3 exemplifies this, with regular updates introduced to offer new technological innovations and customisation features. Following on from the DS LED Vision headlamps in September 2014 and the THP 165 S&S engine with six-speed manual gearbox in November 2014, DS 3 is now available with a new six-speed automatic transmission.

The new EAT6 auto gearbox is coupled with a three-cylinder PureTech 110 turbocharged petrol engine, which produces high levels of torque from low engine revs. This engine and transmission combination accommodates the most relaxed and the most enthusiastic driving styles. Gear shifts are faster and smoother, providing enhanced drivability, responsiveness and acceleration. Meanwhile, the efficiency figures speak for themselves: combined cycle fuel consumption is 60.1mpg for the hatchback models and 57.6mpg for the Cabrio versions, with CO2 emissions of 108g/km (hatchback), down by 42g/km compared with the previous generation VTi 120 4-speed automatic. CO2 emissions are 112g/km for the Cabrio.

The four DS 3 models with this new EAT6 transmission are ‘on sale’ now. First deliveries are scheduled for late June 2015.

  • Gear shifts are 40% faster than the previous generation 4-speed automatic; thanks to a new engine-transmission synchronised control strategy (Quick Shift) and a more efficient control unit.
  • Enhanced drivability; due to a compact torque converter, efficient operation at lower engine speeds and a wider gear-ratio range for improved pick-up, plus lower revs at higher vehicle speeds.
  • Improved fuel consumption; through reduced internal friction (optimised transmission, oil pump flow adjusted on the basis of engine load and a redesigned hydraulic distributor – making it possible to use a smaller oil pump).
