Italy: new DR 3.0 is available with Autogas technology

The DR 3 is changing its face and name in 2023. It is now DR 3.0, a renewed compact-sized SUV, with aesthetic updates and technological innovations for the interior. The new vehicle is available with a 116 HP 1.5 petrol engine or a 114 HP petrol/LPG engine, both with 5-speed manual gearbox.

The DR 3.0 powered by Autogas offers a displacement of 1498cc, maximum power of 84 kw/114hp – 6150 rpm, maximum torque of 131Nm at 4700rpm, and maximum speed of 175 km/h. The price is 20,400 Euros. It has a fuel consumption of 9.3 litres per 100 km, and an outstanding range due to its bi-fuel technology.

The new DR 3.0 is a small five-door and five-seater SUV commercialised by the Molise-based company DR. The aesthetic updates for 2023 start from the front, where the new two-level light clusters make their debut; on the higher one there are the daytime running lights and position lights, and on the lower one the dipped beam, the main beam and the indicators.

The renewed DR 3.0 changes not only outside but also inside. With this update, a new 9-inch infotainment system with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay makes its debut on the dashboard, together with a new climate control panel, new seat upholstery and the opening of the trunk remotely.

In terms of every day convenience, the new 3.0 also features a rear view camera, automatic switching on of the headlights and, finally, some new ADAS systems, such as automatic emergency braking for other vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians.
