Designed for easier urban driving, this system includes 6 front parking sensors that alert the driver in the form of an audible warning.
This emergency braking technology minimises the risk of collision. It starts working from speeds of 3 mph and is designed to detect both fixed or moving obstacles as well as pedestrians. If the system detects a collision risk, it sends a clear warning and if the driver doesn’t respond it automatically applies the brakes.
When you pull away on steep gradients, Hill Start Assist holds the car for 2 seconds, giving you time to pull away safely and smoothly.
By analysing the direction of Citroën C3’s travel, this reassuring system can detect if the driver has lost concentration and sends an audible and visual alert.
If Citroën C3 crosses a solid or intermittent white line without the indicators being activated, the Lane Departure Warning System sends clear visual and audio alerts to the driver.
This feature informs the driver that their vehicle risks colliding with the vehicle in front or a pedestrian in their lane. If a collision risk is detected, an audible and visual warning is given to the driver.
Engage reverse and the Reversing Camera with parking sensors shows a clear view of what’s behind you on the 7 inch touchscreen.
Additional coloured lines makes the position of obstacles clearer and helps you manoeuvre around them more easily.
This system reminds the driver to take a break on
long journeys, for example after 2 hours at average
speeds over 40 mph.
When vehicles are detected coming towards you or overtaking, the headlights will switch from main to dipped beam. It ensures you always have the right lighting for night driving.
The system recognises speed limit signs and displays this information on the drivers display. This speed can then be set for the cruise control/speed limiter. It operates across all speed limits, including the UK national speed limit.
A really useful safety innovation on multi-lane roads, the Blind Spot Monitoring System alerts the driver to vehicles approaching from behind in the blind spot, using an orange warning light mounted in the door mirror.
New Citroën C3 ushers in a new package of connected services that are both simpler and clearer: Connect Assist (safety and assistance), Connect Nav (navigation) and Connect Play (infotainment). This package of services is part of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, with the aim of providing access to connected services quickly and intuitively for the customer, while meeting three key requirements: optimal safety, easy navigation and an enhanced connected experience.
For the safety of the driver and passengers, New C3 comes with Assistance & SOS.
– Automatic call or manually pressing the "Assistance" button: if necessary, this service allows a driver to be put in contact with a dedicated call centre.
– Two possibilities in the event of an emergency:
o In the event of an accident with activation of airbags: an automatic call is made to the emergency service, informing them of the vehicle's location.
o If it is a light accident or if someone feels unwell, the driver can press the red "SOS" button to send a message to the emergency service that contains the identification of the vehicle and its exact location.
