Citroën DS3 DStyle by Benefit
What do the UK’s bestselling mascara and the Citroën DS3 have in common? Benefit Cosmetics, the company behind They’re Real! mascara, has helped to style the car — just what we’ve been waiting for. Citroën’s marketing men are convinced the yoof market wants stylish cars with attitude, so the 1.2-litre VTi DStyle has Perla Nera black metallic paint (that’s the mascara link), 17in alloys and orange door mirrors and wheel caps.

The Corsa is ever popular with British drivers — it was the third-bestselling car in this country last year — and next week Vauxhall reveals an all-new model that it hopes will put the brakes on falling sales across Europe. There will be new 1-litre and 1.4-litre petrol engines, but the most notable change is to the cabin technology. The dashboard features Siri Eyes Free, which uses an iPhone’s voice control function to operate maps, music, email and more.
