Citroën C3
Unique, stylish and practical, New Citroën C3 is everything you would expect a modern Citroën to be. With a truly distinctive style, and featuring innovative new technologies, New C3 is set to become one of the hottest hatchbacks available on the road.

Characterised by a trendy and optimistic design, and animated by coloured inserts and Citroën's innovative Airbump® technology, New C3's expressive and unique shape makes it immediately recognisable. As well as oozing style and personalisation options (available in 36 colour combinations), New C3 also features a host of new technologies, including ConnectedCAM Citroën™ - the world's first in-built camera.

In addition, New C3 comes with the super-efficient, high-performance 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engine – winner of the International Engine of the Year 2015 and 2016 – as well as the refined yet punchy BlueHDi Diesel engine.

Smart and useful technologies

New C3 features the first ever fully integrated camera, ConnectedCAM Citroën™, located just behind the rear-view mirror, enabling drivers to take images, record videos and share instantly on social media channels, or use as evidence in the event of an accident.

As well as ConnectedCAM Citroën™, New C3 aims to improve the driving experience and includes an intuitive 7-inch touchscreen interface, as well as an advanced driver assistance system including voice controlled 3D navigation, speed limit recognition and speed warning, lane departure warning, coffee break alert, blind-spot monitoring and keyless entry and start.

As unique as you are

New C3 is bold and full of personality, to ensure that each owner can create a bespoke look that suits their individuality. Citroën offers New C3 with a host of personalisation options. Customers can choose from 36 different colour combinations, including 3 different roof colour options. There's also the option of going with or without Airbump®, Citroën's unique feature that protects your car from everyday knocks and scrapes. The interior is no different, with three interiors to choose from that all deliver a spacious, yet intimate feel, thanks to the shape of the seats and an uncluttered dashboard.

Your own cocoon

Focusing on occupant well-being, New C3 features another unique offering - Citroën Advanced Comfort® - soft-touch contact points and low noise levels create a sense of calm, while interior space is designed to be stylish and really versatile to enhance passenger comfort and reduce the stresses of the road.

As soon as you get inside, you get a real feeling of well-being thanks to the seats, which are both visually and physically comfortable, the panoramic sunroof* which bathes the passenger compartment in light, and the clever storage compartments – including the 300 litres boot space. This consistent ensemble immerses all occupants in a real bubble. New C3 enables you to feel like you are at home when you are at the wheel.

* Available at additional cost on Flair versions.
