After being teased ahead it official debut on June 29, Citroen’s supermini surfaced online a day earlier than expected.
As presumed, the all new C3 borrows a lot of styling cues from its bigger siblings, especially from the C4 Cactus, as it can be seen from the trademarked airbumps body cladding, as well as from the intricate front fascia.
The rear end (along with the taillights) seems inspired by the upscale DS3 hatchback, with the C-pillar sporting a subtle stripe to induce the idea of a floating roof, while the profile of the car has adopted a more straight-forward, dynamic line.
The images, posted by Cocoric Auto, Autodato and elsewhere, also depict the vehicle with a two-tone color scheme, which the French automotive site says it’s available from a mix of nine colors for the bodywork and three for the roof.
And that’s not all, as the car reportedly throws a panoramic roof in the options list, and the ConnectedCam tech – an onboard HD camera that takes pictures and short videos of up to twenty seconds at a 120-degree angle. In case of an accident, it automatically records the occurrence. Other safety features include both the optional lane departure and blind spot warning.
Rumored to have a boot capacity of up to 300 liters, the car measures 3.99 meters (13 feet) in length, 1.75 meters (5.7 feet) in width and 1.47 (4.8) in height.
We expect to find out more about it, including powertrain availability, tomorrow when the C3 officially debuts, but 3 and 4-cylinder petrol and BlueHDi diesel units are expected.
Thanks to Dave and Adrian for the tip!
