Cool Citroen Provides Backdrop for Staged Row With Realy Boyfriend
Strictly Come Dancing pop star Pixie Lott has chosen a funky Citroen DS3 for her latest music video.
The DS3 DSport features alongside Pixie in the video for Break Up Song, taking centre stage as a young couple have an explosive row in its cabin.
Pixie's love interest – who is played by real-life boyfriend Oliver Cheshire – then exits the vehicle and slams its door.
The camera reveals the striking profile that has found favour with motorists – the car’s profile that is - and helps it stand out from the crowd.
The car in the video is finished with bright white paint and a black roof, with large wheels and LED lights further enhance its appeal.
James Parfett, Communications Director at Citroën UK, said that the singer and the DS3 “make a perfect match” as both are “fashionable and contemporary”.
This isn’t the first time that the singer has used a Citroen DS3 for a music video. A DS3 appeared in the video for Pixie’s top ten single What Do You Take Me For?
Citroen has a long standing relationship with Pixie Lott and has produced a video showing behind the scenes footage of her making her latest promo.
Citroen DS 3 DSport THP 155 Styling, Performance, Fuel Efficiency And Equipment
The Citroen DS 3 DSport THP is a departure from what most people expect from the manufacturer as its purpose is to be funky, fashionable and fun.
This is evident from the floating roof that – at least in theory – looks separated from the rest of the car.
This complements the parts of the bodywork that rise like a shark fin from behind the b-pillars.
Propulsion comes courtesy of a 1.6-litre, 155hp, petrol engine that sends power to the front wheels via six-speed manual transmission. 0-62mph takes 7.3 seconds, which is fast. The sure-footed and entertaining handling ensure this power can be enjoyed. Despite its speed, this three-door hatchback is fairly fuel efficient.
It averages 47.1mpg, manages 60.1mpg on the extra-urban cycle, and hits 34.4mpg in town.
Low fuel consumption ensures its carbon emissions are modest so – as road tax is based on emissions – it can be taxed for only £130 per-annum (in year one and subsequently at the current rates). Standard equipment is relatively basic but includes a: CD player, cruise control and stability program.
The DS 3 DSport THP 155 starts from £18,500 on the road.
*The new series of Strictly Come Dancing starts on BBC1 at 9pm on Friday, September 26.
