The new Citroen C3, which certainly offers a breath of fresh air to the supermini segment is now available to order in Ireland.
Starting at €15,490, the new Citroen C3 is set to shake up the market with its highly customisable character and the latest automotive technologies, including a world premiere for ‘ConnectedCAM Citroen’, an on-board HD camera that allows drivers to share their road-trip photos and videos directly with friends and family.
The new Citroen C3 is everything one would expect a modern Citroen to be – colourful, stylish, brimming with new technologies, comfortable and with a bold, fun-loving personality. And the French carmaker tells us it is available to order in Ireland now.
The new C3 comes with a choice of three generously equipped trim levels, Touch, Feel and Flair, meaning it is easy to find a perfect match.
The entry-level Touch trim offers entertainment features such as a USB socket for media streaming and Bluetooth handsfree. Safety features include lane departure warning and coffee break alert, as well as comfort features including cruise control and power steering.
For the Irish launch customers can avail of a free style pack worth €500, bringing the distinctive airbump and bi-tone roof to the Feel trim level.
The efficient, high-performance powertrain options continue the technological theme with International Engine of the Year award winning PureTech petrol and BlueHDi Diesel Euro 6 engines, as well as the latest generation EAT6 fully automatic gearbox available as part of the range. With this engine line-up sales of petrol engines are expected to increase on the new C3.
The PureTech family of three-cylinder petrol engines represents a real technological breakthrough for the modern petrol engine, and has won the International Engine of the Year in 2015 and 2016. Compact dimensions, low weight and innovative low friction materials allow PureTech engines to deliver more power, exceptional driving characteristics and incredibly low emissions.
Citroen Ireland managing director, Chris Graham, says the new Citroen C3 is the most significant launch for Citroën in Ireland in the past six years, offering a stand-out new option for customers in the B-hatchback segment.
"We are very excited about the potential of the new C3, offering such a high level of technology and a host of stylish options at a competitive price, we expect it to attract many new customers to the Citroen showrooms. This one is a real show stopper, so I would encourage customers to contact their local dealership so they can be one of the first to test drive this impressive new C3.”
