It’s not often that the word unique can be used to describe a car, but the new Citroën C3 really is a feat of engineering. This innovative car has been laced with new technologies, including a camera for snapshotting your road trips, to give every drive a hit of fun.
Capture your journey in real time using the ConnectedCAM Citroën camera fitted behind the rear view mirror. Whether you pass an awe-inspiring landscape or notice an advert that makes you smile, you can click a button to take a picture that’s shareable on social media later on. It also activates in an impact and instantly stores what happened 30 seconds before and 60 seconds after a collision, providing useful information and evidence for your insurer.
With optional navigation, a reversing camera and blind-spot monitoring, every journey will go by without a glitch
The new creation is barely recognisable from the Citroën C3 you know. Taking its styling cues from the signature C4 Cactus, it has a wide, flat-fronted nose which brings a hint of SUV resilience to the compact supermini. Optional Airbump® protectors on the sides give it a muscular edge and help to prevent the C3 from any nasty dings from neighbouring parked cars.
The customization options don’t end at the Airbumps®; there are a whole host of colour combinations to choose from for the roof, sides, wing mirrors and fog light surrounds. Pitch your personality onto your motor and you’ll be proud to have it parked on your drive.
New C3 also has a wide range of colours to pick from: Almond Green, Polar White, Cobalt Blue, Shark Grey, Arctic Steel, Ruby Red, Perla Nera Black, Orange Power or Soft Sand...
Combine these 9 subtle or punchy colours with the 3 different roof colours (Onyx Black, Sport Red, Opal White) and multiply the combinations (up to 36 possible combinations of body colours). These options allow you to liven up a classic colour with a coloured roof, or conversely, to temper a more "pop" body colour with a dark roof. These combinations reinforce the new style and freshness of New C3.
3.99m in length, the Citroën C3 is a spacious supermini that’s comfortable for all passengers. A 300-litre boot will easily hold all your new purchases from shopping trips and a number of holdalls for a trip away. The open cabin is made even more bright and airy by the optional panoramic sunroof which makes the most of sunny days.
A choice of three highlight colours for the dashboard fascia allows you to create the mood you want inside, whether that’s vivid and lively or neutral and soft. Extra touches like leather strap door handles and a touchscreen make it a luxurious space to relax in, not just one that’s functional.
There are five engines to choose from: three PureTech petrol versions and two BlueHDi diesel variants. The petrol engines are 1.2-litre and are available with 67bhp, 81bhp and 109bhp. Diesel motors are 1.6-litre with a choice of 74bhp or 99bhp.
The PureTech and BlueHDi systems make the engines more fuel-efficient, saving you on trips to fill up the tank.
