Citroen DS3 Cabrio was officially revealed image

Citroen has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the DS3 Cabrio, ahead of its public debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show at the end of September.

The Citroen DS3 Cabrio has been teased just a day before writing this article, when the French based automaker said that it will arrive at the Paris Motor Show, but now the model has been revealed and, just like its hard top brother, it’s getting an interesting design. The soft top of the Citroen DS3 Cabrio seems to be inspired by the one used by Fiat on its 500C, with the roof down, the edges and side windows will remain in their place.

The car manufacturer says that the DS3 Cabrio is only 25 kg heavier than the regular version and the model is also getting the same insulation as the hatchback. Another advantage is that the DS3 Cabrio can pull its roof down and up again at speeds up to 120 km/h, and the action takes 16 seconds. In the cabin, the model is still keeping that glamour style, which made its solid roof brother popular and loved, with the only modification being the button which is operating the roof near the roof lights. The DS3 Cabrio will get the same engines as the hatchback, and the trim levels will also be shared between the two.
