A wind of change is blowing through the compact family car segment! Fully in step with its times, the New Citroën C3 stands out with its trendy and optimistic design, enlivened by colour inserts and graphic details including the Airbumps®. The car's highly expressive and unique body styling makes it immediately recognisable in its category. Find out more about the New Citroën C3 in six videos on styling, customisation, Citroën Advanced Comfort®, new technologies, and Citroën ConnectedCAM™.
Love at first sight guaranteed! The singular body styling of the New Citroën C3 stands apart with its charismatic front end and generous curves, lending it a powerful and energetic feel. The smooth shapes, graphic signature and colours given new meaning to the words hip and trendy. With the New C3, stand out from the crowd and embrace modernity!
Thanks to its limited length (under 4 m), New C3 is particularly agile and easy to handle, which is very noticeable in town.
It has 5 doors and 5 seats, which makes it practical in all circumstances!
• Length: 3.99 m
• Width: 1,74 m
• Height: 1.47 m
• Wheelbase: 2.54 m
• Boot volume: 300 l
The two-tiered front light signature strengthens the gaze of the New C3 and underlines the sense of boot height. The chevrons and their chrome-finished double bars extend all the way out to the LED daytime running lights, while the headlamps feature a rounded design. Lower down, the bumper enhances the impression of front-end height to give the car an adventuresome air. Coloured inserts surround the fog lamps and add an extra touch of freshness.
The floating roof is one of the New C3's major styling strengths. Available in three colours, it sits on black A pillars and taut roof arches that boost the vitality of the body styling. The well-measured proportions of the metal and glass underscore the protective and well-balanced aspect of the New C3 - a self-possessed and serene attitude with flowing, non-aggressive surfaces.
To go even further in the personalization, you can opt for a roof decoration that will emphasize the design of the pavilion of Citroën C3.
It exists in white or black, and is perfectly resistant to water, abrasion and frequent maintenance.
Customisation possibilities are almost endless on the New C3. Two-tone or single-colour? With or without Airbumps®? A cosy or uncluttered interior design scheme? Make your choice from among all the possible combinations!
New C3 gives you a cocoon effect which filters out the outside world and isolates you from 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. This consistent ensemble immerses you and your passengers in a real bubble. New C3 enables you to feel like you are at home when you are at the wheel.
The interior shapes are full-bodied and soft and home to purely styled components. The harmonious feel is also underpinned by a uniform approach to the styling of the doors, seats and dashboard. The same warm and luminous fabric provides an original and high-quality visual continuity.
The interior styling is inspired by a world other than that of cars, with the inclusion of a strap on the armrests and fabrics on the dashboard.
With the New Citroën C3's panoramic glass roof, passengers benefit from outstanding light throughout the entire cabin, enhancing the sense of space and openness to the outside world. Occupants can adjust the intensity of the light at any time using the roof sun blind.
Being in the New Citroën C3 feels just like being in your living room! Travelling well-being is strengthened by the horizontal dashboard that lends a sense of space and width to the interior.
Considerable attention was paid to the seating in the New C3. The seats are broad and generously sized for optimal comfort while featuring modern styling. Providing excellent lumbar support, the welcoming seats provide top-level comfort thanks to the materials chosen and the use of softer foam.
New Citroën C3 is also all about fashionable technology. A world first, Citroën offers ConnectedCAM Citroën™, a connected HD camera. This hatchback also offers a range of equipment that makes life easier for the driver: 3D connected navigation with voice recognition, reversing camera, Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Monitoring.
Impressive panoramas, original vistas and city treks: the New C3 films your driving experiences with the Citroën ConnectedCAM™. The camera system, built in to the interior rearview mirror, records what you see outside the car in front of you.
As such, it captures your day-to-day driving experiences:
- Take a picture or record a video of what you see with a simple click, and share the result on the social networks.
- The system records anything happening in front of your windscreen, so it can be highly useful in the event of an incident.
In addition to the connected audio system, the navigation system allows you to avoid traffic jams and have excellet navigation instructions thanks to improved map representation. The main European cities are mapped in "FULL 3D", meaning that a number of buildings and landmarks present are already built-in in three dimensions.
This technology allows you to connect a smartphone and to duplicate it on the central screen. You see your multimedia content and you directly and easily control your smartphone and your compatible applications using the 7-inch touchscreen . It works with Apple CarPlayTM and MirrorLink®.
The blind spot monitoring system indicates the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot using a light in the door mirrors. This system, which works on the same principle as the reversing sensors, is a major safety asset, for example on motorways.
This system allows you to combat drowsiness or just a momentary lack of attention at the wheel from 37MPH. When the car crosses a white line without the indicator having been activated, the system’s electronic control unit (ECU) triggers a warning. In this way, you are warned by audible beeps and a visual warning when the line is crossed.
The reversing camera displays the view behind on the cars touchscreen when the reverse gear is engaged.
This view is enhanced with colour guidelines which show the proximity to any obstacle. A real expanded view to make reversing manoeuvres easier!
Feeling a little tired? This system warns you when it's time to take a break. The alert is activated after driving for two hours at speeds of over 65 km/h and is repeated every extra hour of driving if you don't take a break.
The system recognises speed limit signs and gives this information to the driver. This speed can be used to set the speed limiter/cruise control. It works across the entire speed range. The system also detects signs indicating the end of the speed limit.
This emergency braking system limits the risk of collisions. It operates from 5 km / h with fixed or moving objects and with pedestrians up to a certain speed.
This technology helps you pull away when parked on a hill. It prevents any undesired movements of the vehicle on an incline when you take your foot off the brake. Hill-start assist works on gradients of over 3% by stabilising the vehicle for around two seconds.
