Why choose ordinary when you can opt for the new Citroën C3, which boasts a unique, modern and instantly recognisable design? Inspired by the C4 Cactus, this revamped model can be customised to suit your needs, offering an exceptional driving experience that will get you from A to B with ease.
As a trend setter within the automotive industry, the first thing you’ll notice about the Citroën C3 is likely to be its innovative Airbump® technology, which instantly adds to the overall character and charm of this head-turning ride. The rubber panels not only attract attention but they’re practical too, helping to eliminate scratch and scrapes. The protective front bumper also complements the rest of the bodywork while accentuating the width and height of the vehicle.
The interior of the Citroën C3 radiates sophistication and class boasting high-quality cloth, flashes of colour and intricate stitching. As with the exterior, the interior can be customised to suit your tastes with everything from Urban Red colour accents to leather-look fabrics complementing the upmarket look and design. Complete with five doors and five seats, as well as a boot volume of nearly 300 litres, this car is practical in every circumstance.
Regardless of what trim you choose, the C3 will offer a delicate balance between power and efficiency that is bound to impress. Entry-level VT trims allow you to choose between a 1.0-litre 68bhp petrol engine and a 1.2-litre 75bhp diesel unit.
The former allows for up to 64.2mpg and emissions of only 102g/km, yet it is the diesel unit that can deliver even more efficiency, with an impressive figure of up to 80.7mpg and emissions of only 92g/km.
Technology and Safety
At the forefront of design, the new Citroën C3 is also leading the way in innovative technology, featuring a world premiere of the ConnectedCAM™ - a two-megapixel, GPS-enabled camera that is located behind the rear-view mirror to film what the driver sees through the car windscreen. Also included are a CD-player and RDS radio with Bluetooth connectivitiy.
The C3’s passive safety systems include ABS, Electronic Stability Control, and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System – all in addition to multiple airbags.
