A revolution is occurring in among compact hatchbacks! The style conscious, Citroën C3 is characterised by a trendy and optimistic design and brought to life by coloured inserts and graphic elements like the Airbump® panels. Its expressive and unique shape makes it immediately recognisable in its segment. Style and personalisation are at the forefront of this models desirability. Combined with Citroën Advanced Comfort®, new technologies and ConnectedCAM Citroën ™ the new C3 appeals to all tastes.
The distinctive style of the C3 sets itself apart by bristling with uniqueness including a charismatic front and generous curves which give it a dominant stance. Its smooth lines, intertwined with the colours, make it a trendy and energetic model with fun at its core. With the C3, free yourself and go with today! Thanks to its limited length (under 4 m), the C3 is particularly agile and easy to handle, which is very noticeable in an urban setting when efficient starts are required to make an enjoyable journey. Featuring 5 doors and 5 seats the C3 is practical in all circumstances.
The Airbump® panels (air-filled bumps with a scratch-proof surface, as seen on C4 Cactus) are a Citroën signature feature, offering an abundance of personality and style, as well as providing vital protection for the vehicle. The thermoplastic polyurethane material used in the Airbump® panels resists everyday degradation, protecting them from sunlight, water, scratches etc. 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. The Airbump® feature a white or red graphic motif, depending on the version.
The Citroën C3 has a colour for everyone with an array of vibrant colours to choose 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 configurable options allow you to enliven 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 the C3.
The blind spot monitoring system indicates the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot using a light in the door mirrors.
The system recognises speed limit signs and gives this information to the driver. This speed can be used to set the speed limiter/cruise control.
The reversing camera displays the view behind on the cars touchscreen when the reverse gear is engaged. This view is enhanced with colour guidelines which show the proximity to any obstacle.
Are you feeling a bit tired? This system tells you when it is time to have a break. The alert is issued after driving for two hours at speeds of over 40MPH. It is repeated for every hour of additional driving without a break.
This system allows you to combat drowsiness or just a momentary lack of attention at the wheel from 37MPH. When the car crosses a white line without the indicator having been activated, the system’s electronic control unit (ECU) triggers a warning.
A world first, Citroën offers ConnectedCAM Citroën™, a connected HD camera. This hatchback also offers a range of equipment that makes life easier for the driver: 3D connected navigation with voice recognition, reversing camera, Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Monitoring.
Thanks to its panoramic sunroof, the passengers in the Citroën C3 benefit from exceptional brightness throughout the passenger compartment, which emphasises the feeling of space and openness to the outside. At any moment, the occupants can change the intensity of the brightness by using the sunblind.
On board, you will have the impression of being in your living room! This well-being is reinforced by the horizontal dashboard which gives an impression of space and width of the passenger compartment.
The C3 seats are the result of a lot of work. They offer width and generosity to promote comfort, while adopting a modern style. Welcoming and providing good lumbar support, these seats offer top level comfort thanks to the materials that they're made from.
The C3 has a clever central storage compartment which frees up as much space as possible in the front and large storage compartments on the front doors. There is no compromise on luggage space, the C3 has a boot volume of nearly 300 litres.
