This latest Citroen C3, which is set for launch in early summer 2013 in the UK, reasserts its unique qualities with ‘Creative Technologie’ in the shape of the panoramic Zenith windscreen, a proven success with customers that provides best in class visibility.
The exterior of the new Citroen C3 combines soft curves with dynamic taut lines. A restyled front end, updated chevrons and bumper-mounted LED daytime running lights, new tail light clusters and a new Ink blue body paint is also available, expanding the range’s palette to a total of nine colours.
Inside, the cabin is finely crafted with top-quality materials, including chrome detailing and a thermo-coated soft-touch dashboard, new dashboard strips in matt black, a warm brown or Moondust grey, which coordinate with the new style upholstery and the instrument cluster is also backlit in white for a contemporary look and easier to read driving information.
The new C3 can be powered by Citroen’s new-generation PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines with a 1.0 or 1.2-litre capacity. The VTi 68 and VTi 82 PureTech engines achieve impressively low fuel consumption, between 62.8 and 65.7mpg, and CO2 emissions between 99 and 104g/km. A VTi 120 engine is also available with a manual or automatic gearbox.
One of the most compact vehicles in its segment 3.94m long & 1.71m wide with a 10.8m turning circle, the new C3 is perfectly proportioned for city driving, and also offers a spacious and practical interior.
The 300 litre boot is among the largest in its class and there is an abundance of storage compartments, including in the central console, glove box and central armrest. The semi-high seats make for easy access and give occupants a commanding view of their surroundings.
