Manchester is a city and metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester, located north of the Cheshire Plain and south and west of the Pennines, with an estimated population of 545,000.

Manchester is a popular cultural centre, with performing arts and live music venues that include the Palace Theatre, Manchester Opera House, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester Arena and Manchester Academy.

Manchester has provided iconic bands such as The Smiths, Joy Division, The Verve, M People and The 1975, and in the height of the 1980s the ‘Madchester’ scene gave us The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets and James.

Canal Street has been the home for an LGBTQ+ community since 1940, with bars and clubs attracting around 20k visitors each weekend, and the Manchester Pride festival is celebrated every August.

It wouldn’t be fair to talk about Manchester without mentioning the city’s football rivalry: you’re either blue or you’re red, City or United—with both teams holding an extensive list of silverware and titles.

DS

DS is the premium automobile marque of the Groupe PSA. First announced in 2009 by Citroën as its premium sub-brand; it was suggested to be an abbreviation of different spirit or distinctive series. However, in French, the name is considered a play on words, as the translation of déesse becomes goddess in English.

How popular is DS in the United Kingdom?

As a newcomer to the UK market in its own right, there were around 35k DS cars on the roads in the UK by the end of 2018. Whether those figures will continue to rise at the same rate shown since their introduction in 2015, only time will tell.

Looking to provide a standalone marque to initially compete with brands such as Volkswagen and Audi, PSA decided that neither Citroën nor Peugeot would be able to carry the brand strength that would be able to make a serious threat in the market with an elevated price-point at the level of quality and luxury they set out to achieve.

DS: Establishing a new range of upmarket models

To compete with the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, DS introduced a range of hatchbacks, saloons and SUVs but it’s undoubtedly their supermini city car that is proving the most popular.

The DS3, sold as a 3-door hatchback or a convertible, is available in countless customisation options and also as the subcompact luxury crossover SUV DS3 Crossback. The DS3 was voted Car of the Year by Top Gear Magazine, and first place supermini four times in a row in the JD Power Satisfaction UK Survey.

DS: Don’t be fooled into thinking they’re just a one trick pony

At the other end of the range you’ll find the DS7 Crossback. Here’s a large SUV designed to compete directly with the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC; that’s quite a jump for a car that’s built by Citroën.

The models that you’ll find between the DS3 and the DS7 are created with the same style for the market in mind. The DS4, a mixture of hatchback and SUV, and the DS5, a bigger hatchback priced and pitched against the Audi A4, the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C-Class saloons.

DS’s reliability and reputation

DS didn’t feature in the 30 car brands of the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018, however, Citroën came in at 25th place so it stands to reason that their premium vehicles should score higher. Not necessarily so. Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover were propping up the wrong end of the survey, and given that the most reliable brands are all Asian manufacturers (with Suzuki, Lexus, Toyota, Kia and Mitsubishi taking the top spots) perhaps it’s simply a case of the rest of the world are having to play catch-up?
