Citroen has introduced the new C3 with an entry level price of €14,900. It is a smart, sophisticated, low C02 and unique five-door supermini, and it is designed for the modern family. The new C3 falls into the popular and growing B-segment, where its predecessor sold more than two million world-wide. Citroen claims that the new C3 meets the demand for a practical and economical vehicle that also delivers style, distinction, durability and safety.
Citroen says that offering space, functionality, and a refined interior — plus the unique panoramic Zenith windscreen — the new C3 has a stand-out personality that will successfully differentiate it from the competition. The new C3 will appeal to a wide range of customers who want their vehicle to be individual and not just another face in the crowd. Boasting contemporary and dynamic styling, a sleek profile, refined quality throughout and a massive panoramic ‘Zenith’ windscreen, this is a car that sets a new benchmark in the B-segment — and is a bold reinvention of its popular predecessor, which sold more than two million examples worldwide.
Not only one of the most compact models in the B-segment (5cm shorter than Corsa and 9cm shorter than 207 and Clio ), the new C3 also offers one of the most spacious cabin environments and a class-leading 300-litres of boot space. Citroen say that the new C3’s intelligent architecture optimises internal volumes and provides generous amounts of room for all occupants — ensuring exceptional driver and passenger comfort. On the road, Citroen tells us that the new C3 combines refined performance with a smooth ride and nimble handling. The designers’ focus on the control of weight and optimising aerodynamics means the new C3 is one of Citroën’s most C02 efficient models. To further promote money-saving greener driving, most versions should feature a Gear Efficiency Indicator (GEI ), which alerts the driver at the optimum moment to change gear - helping them to minimise fuel consumption.
The new C3 features an array of active and passive safety equipment, which includes a reinforced body structure and ABS with EBD and EBA as standard, as well as the availability of cruise control with speed limiter and up to six airbags. ESP is also available on certain models. Whilst most models in the small car market either focus on style (with sporty, dynamic characteristics ) or practicality (with an emphasis on value-for-money ), the new C3 strikes an excellent balance between the two.
