LONDON – July 18, 2013: Image-conscious Maitlands, an award-winning independent estate agents, has just taken delivery of five CitroŽn DS3 DSign VTi 82 coupes. These stylish cars, with their eye-catching red, white and blue Maitlands livery are now based at the company’s offices in Saltash, Ivybridge, Plympton and Plymouth.

In a very short amount of time DS3 has become an integral and visual element of the Maitlands marketing strategy. Maitlands is using the cars as viewing vehicles as they accompany all buyers around every home they market. The CitroŽns are already very busy, in their first month alone the cars made over 1000 visits across the area. In addition, DS3 forms part of the company’s pro-active marketing activities which include being displayed at local shows and exhibitions and for Maitlands sponsored and supported school visits.

Supplied by Bristol Street Motors and operated on Alphabet Fleet Management, 33-month, with maintenance, contract hire agreements, these DS3s will cover around 13,500 miles per annum in Maitlands’ service.

Andrew Blacklock, Maitlands’ Managing Director, comments, “We love the modern design of DS3, the spacious interior and the way they are a perfect fit for our forward thinking business approach. Equally importantly, all our team members enjoy driving them, as they are very economical and nippy. We have had great customer feedback, commenting that the Maitlands branding complements the style of the cars, making the DS3 really stand out on the street.”

CitroŽn DS3 has recently been voted “Best Supermini” in the annual What Car? JD Power vehicle ownership satisfaction survey and was given a maximum five-star rating by owners for Performance, Service and Running Costs. CitroŽn DS3’s design, quality, comfort and enjoyable performance were all referenced as part of the positive owner experience.

CitroŽn’s dealer network was praised for its “clean facilities and professionalism” and DS3 owners also claimed to enjoy the lowest fuel costs and service repair bills in the segment.
