Citroën says its technical solution for the brand new DS3 Cabriolet is modern, but one can clearly see the “retroness” in it. Instead of being able to open the whole entire roof with pillars, only the top part can be displaced, slid backwards towards the rear end. It’s just like they used to do back in the day.

Does this then take away from the DS3 Cabriolet’s beauty? I reckon not. It probably adds to it in fact. At the same time, I think it makes it look more femininethan masculine, meaning the ladies will probably be more impressed than the non-pink guys.

The roof itself comes in three different styles and can be electronicallyoperated at up to 120km/h. as is normal in these instances, extra weighthas been put on as a result of the roof mechanism. Thankfully it’s only to the tune of 25kgon the equivalent tin top DS3.

The Citroën DS3 Cabriolet is a competitor to the likes of MINI Convertible and will be unveiled to the public at the 2012 Paris International Motor Show which kicks off at the end of September.
