Following a short teaser campaign and a few leaked images, the all-new Citroen C3 is finally here.
The brand’s second model to sport the new makeover, after the C4 Cactus, has received the signature airbump protection panels, slim lights flanking the grille, main headlights positioned right underneath, DS3-inspired taillights and rear end and a slightly curved roof.
Citroen offers its new supermini in 36 possible color combos, with nine body shades and three colors for the roof, joined by four interior themes, including the Urban Red, which adds a red dash panel finish and red stitching.
Compared to the larger C4 Cactus, the cabin features conventional dials, a lower-mounted touchscreen display and face-level air vents. A 3D satellite navigation system with real-time traffic info, rearview camera, the brand’s SOS service with live assistance, blind spot warning, hill start assist and driver fatigue warning are some of the optional features that equip the new C3.
The list of gadgets also includes what Citroen refers to as ConnectedCam, a system that uses a wide-angle camera, GPS and Web connection to send images, at a single click, to social media networks, but this can also be used to make 20-sec videos when the vehicle is stationary.
The engine lineup comprises of the PureTech 68 PS (67 HP), 82 PS (81 HP) and 110 PS (108 HP) three-cylinder petrol units and the BlueHDi 75 PS (74 HP) and 100 PS (99 HP) diesels. Depending on the selected grade, customers will get to choose between a manual and a six-speed automatic transmission.
