The Citroën C3’s highly customisable character combined with a raft of the latest automotive technologies, ensures that each owner can create a bespoke look that suits their individual style.
Options on this supermini even include an on-board HD camera. The ConnectedCAM Citroën™ is located behind the rear view mirror, and captures images and video that can instantly be shared, or saved as evidence in the event of an accident.
At the front, the two-tier light signature reinforces the impression of bonnet height. Double chrome strips extend from the chevrons and go all the way across to the LED daytime running lights. The protective front bumper also blends into the rest of the bodywork to give the C3 a ‘go-anywhere’ look and feel.
The design elements continue at the back with 3D rear lights.
The exterior has a two-tone paint option, with a choice of roof colours and complimentary touches of colour around the car (fog lights, door mirrors, rear quarter panels and on the Airbump® panels). This customisation also extends to the interior with a choice of ‘Ambiences’ including – Urban Red Ambience which features red over-stitching and a red dashboard surround.
C3’s seats provide generous width, lumbar support and comfort to help cushion the impact of uneven road surfaces. The designers at Citroën have also paid special attention to the car’s storage and stowage spaces, including large storage bins in the front doors.
Citroën Connect Nav (via the 7-inch touchscreen) is a new-generation connected satnav system that can be controlled by voice or touch. It ties in with connected services such as TomTom Traffic for real-time traffic information, geolocation and price details for service stations and carparks, weather forecasts, and information on local points of interest. There is also an optional ‘danger zones’ function that provides visual and audible warnings of accident black spots in real time.
Mirror Screen technology duplicates smartphone content directly onto the 7-inch touchscreen. Here, the driver can access their multimedia content by touch or voice recognition. Available with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto and MirrorLink®.
The Citroën C3 now offers even more options that improve the driving experience, with an advanced driver assistance system including voice controlled 3D navigation, a reversing camera, lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring.
The efficient, high-performance powertrain options continue the technological theme with PureTech petrol and BlueHDi Diesel engines, and the latest generation EAT6 fully automatic gearbox is available as part of the range.
The Airbump® panels (air-filled bumps with a scratch-proof surface, as seen on C4 Cactus) are a Citroën signature feature, offering personality and style, as well as protecting the vehicle. Each panel positions a line of air-filled bumps at the bottom of the doors to protect the most vulnerable areas of the car in the urban environment. Optionally available – but standard on the Flair trim.
