For DS, the premium brand launched by the PSA group a few months back, sales success and vehicle appeal go hand in hand with continuous improvement. The DS 3, for example, is regularly upgraded to offer new technological innovations and customization features. Following on from the LED Vision headlamps that came in September 2014, and the THP 165 S&S engine with six-speed manual gearbox in November 2014, the DS 3 is now getting a six-speed automatic transmission.  The EAT6 transmission is coupled with a three-cylinder PureTech110 turbocharged engine, which gives high torque from low engine revs. This ideal combination accommodates the smoothest or the briskest driving styles, at the driver’s wish. Gear shifts are faster and smoother, bringing enhanced driveability, response and acceleration. And the efficiency figures speak for themselves: combined-cycle fuel consumption is 4.7 litres per 100 km for the hatchback and 4.9 litres for the Cabrio version, for CO2 emissions of 108 g/km (hatchback), down by 42 g/km (28% less than with the VTi 120 automatic version) or 112 g/km (Cabrio).

The market share of automatic-transmission versions in the B2 premium segment had risen by five percentage points in some countries by early 2015, so release of this new DS 3 version looks to be a promising milestone in the DS 3

Since it first appeared on the market in spring 2010, DS 3 has become an icon, the vehicle of choice for more than  330 000 customers worldwide. True to the DS brand strategy of perpetual product evolution, DS 3 is now getting a new six-speed and latest generation automatic transmission, for an even more comfortable ride and even smoother vehicle response, along with a improvement of more than 28% in CO2 emissions, which are down by more than 42 g.

ABOUT THE EAT6 SIX-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION Gear shifts 40% faster, thanks to a new engine-transmission synchronized control strategy (Quick Shift) and a more efficient new controller. ? Enhanced driveability, thanks to a compact toroid converter and improved filtration that enables operation at lower engine speeds, and a wider gear-ratio range for improved pick-up performance and lower revs at high vehicle speed,  ? Lower fuel consumption, through reduced internal friction (optimized clutch disks, oil pump flow adjusted on the basis of engine load, and a redesigned hydraulic distributor making it possible to use a smaller oil pump).
