Having made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year,
the new Citroen C3 has arrived locally. It strengthens and enhances the qualities of its predecessor. The new C3 brings
motorists even more C3, reasserting its uniqueness and standing apart with new strengths and advantages.
“Citroen C3 is a value proposition in the European light car segment offering some unique features at a competitive
price. Features like the Zenith Windscreen, economical engines and the build quality from France is something we know our
customers will appreciate,” said Citroen Marketing Manager, Manuel Tyras.
NEW BODY STYLING
The new model is soft by its curves and dynamic by its flowing, taut lines. Built in France the front end gets a new
“smile” with restaged Citroen chevrons and bumper-mounted LED daytime running lights, providing a steelier gaze and extra
expressiveness. Also more expressive are the new taillights, combined with new reflectors set in the lower sides that
underscore the sense of stability conveyed by the new C3. The model gets new Blue Encre body paint, expanding the palette
to a total of seven colours.
The new Citroen C3 appeals with its body styling as well as with its meticulous interior. The cabin features
well-crafted, quality materials including chrome surrounds and a thermo-coated dashboard, underlined by a new cross strip
in matt black, warm brown or Moondust grey. The new Citroen C3 is also home to new upholstery that perfectly matches the
dashboard strips. And in an exquisite piece of detailing, the instrument cluster is backlit in white, for a
contemporary look and easier-to-read driving information.
ONE OF THE MOST COMPACT MODELS IN THE SEGMENT
The new Citroen C3 is one of the most compact vehicles in its segment. At 3.94 m long and 1.71 m wide with a 10.8 m
turning circle, it is perfectly dimensioned for city driving.
The compact exterior hides a spacious interior. The new Citroen C3 boasts a generously sized cabin, a 300 litre boot
(among the largest in the category) and a plethora of storage compartments (central console, glove box, central armrest,
etc). The semi-high seats make access easy and give occupants a commanding view of their surroundings, as part of an
approach focused on comfort and safety.
A NEW AUTOMOTIVE EXPERIENCE
The new Citroen C3 retains a feature central to its unique personality: the Zenith windscreen, providing
best-in-segment visibility. Bringing the landscape into the cabin, this true technological feat makes for a whole new
The Zenith windscreen increases the upward field of vision of front passengers by 80°. The exceptional length of the
window, combined with ultra-slim pillars, gives motorists the impression of being outside while in. Strong solar
protection at the top of the windscreen above the front occupants merges gradually into regular-transparency glass for
The new Citroen C3 also benefits from all of the brand’s expertise in comfort. It brings all occupants real well-being
through a soft ride, acoustic and vibration comfort, and the comfort afforded by the openness of the generous glazed
surfaces and the scented air freshener.
Modern and user-friendly, the new C3 is available with a reversing camera (Exclusive model) with parking aid sensors –
a new technology that makes day-to-day manoeuvres easier – together with the RD4 MP3 audio system, the Connecting Box
(Bluetooth hands-free kit, jack plug and USB socket) and the eMyWay navigation system.
The new Citroen C3 is equally at ease in the city and out on the open road, with well-balanced road manners,
ultra-controlled mass, optimised drag of 0.30, and a range of responsive and efficient engines.
Citroen’s mini hatch is powered by the new-generation PureTech petrol engines, with three and four cylinders. These
powerplants are economical on fuel and CO2 emissions but lively in use. Some 52 patents were filed in the development of
the new engine generation in order to bring down weight and bulk, optimise combustion and reduce friction, the aim being
to cut fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by around 25% while making the powerplants more responsive. In
short, the PureTech engines provide performance with no detriment to pleasure. The 1.2-litre 60 kW engine achieves
remarkably low fuel consumption of just 4.5 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 107g/km and is couple with a five-speed manual
gearbox. The 1.2-litre 88kW engine runs on a rating of 6.6 litres of fuel on the combined cycle and emits 150 g/km CO2
and is available with a four-speed automatic transmission.
