Citroën has put the best of its technological expertise into the new C3 to deliver a remarkably comfortable suspension and an incomparably smooth drive.
The new Citroën C3 is fitted with MacPherson type suspension at the front and a flexible transverse beam at the rear, with variable electric power steering. These proven solutions are ideally matched to the vehicle’s characteristics.
The automatic gearbox gives you a choice between automatic mode, which adapts the gearshift speed to your driving style, and sequential mode, which lets you change gears freely. This gearbox is available with the VTi 120 petrol engine.
The Citroën C3 creates a new automotive experience with its Zenith windscreen. The exceptionally long 1,350 mm windscreen is a genuine technological feat that increases the forward field of vision by 80° upwards as well as improving front 3/4 visibility.
With its curving design and slimmer pillars, the windscreen creates a sensation of unlimited high-definition vision, shared by all the passengers. An impression of full immersion as they watch the scenery go by.
While the exterior design of the Citroën C3 is compact, the interior offers a unique panorama, creating a sense of total freedom for passengers: the road and the scenery become an integral part of the car.
The Zenith windscreen is a technological feat. Passengers are fully immersed in the scenery as part of a sensory experience that adds a new dimension in comfort to each journey. Travelling on board the new Citroën C3 quickly becomes a unique experience.
The Citroën C3 is like a glass bubble featuring an astonishing show of light. To channel the light flooding into the cabin, the Zenith windscreen features a progressive colour fade and a stiff blind (with two sun blinds) at the top.
Even in full sunlight, the C3 is still a pleasure to drive. Passengers can take advantage of the broad field of vision without having others see inside.
Strong design lines
With its clean, taut lines, the Citroën C3 makes a statement of avant-garde styling. The dynamic front end, the twin chevrons all heighten the car’s resolutely elegant design.
A strong personality is also revealed in the robust bonnet, which ends with the elegantly shaped lights. The Citroën C3 is every inch an eye-catcher, right up to the back end, a car that makes you want to take the wheel.
The Citroën C3 is one of the most compact vehicles in its segment. Resisting the trend for supersizing, it remains under the 4m mark (3.94m long, 1.73m wide and 1.52m tall). It may respect the bigger is better theory but the occupants do not lose out.
But the compact dimensions do not compromise comfort or the volume of the boot, which is one of the largest in its segment.
With its turning circle of 10.2m, the C3 is ideally suited to urban use.
Echoing the exterior design, the interior styling of the Citroën C3 is both elegant and dynamic. Smooth, taut curves form the air vents, instrument clusters, and multi-function screen.
The thermo-covered dash is underlined by a strip in Tungsten or Moondust grey. Around the car, touches of chrome and lacquer work with the subtle and harmonious trim details to give the cabin a unique, elegant look.
Climb on board the Citroën C3 and discover a cabin dedicated to driving. The driving position is an invitation to travel with its high-mounted hooded instrument cluster, sculpted steering wheel and digital dial.
You can give the road your full attention, with all the necessary driving information available at a glance. The central console is within easy reach. Comfortably seated in your unique driving position, all you want to do is drive.
The Citroën C3 combines compact exterior dimensions with interior space. The generously sized cabin accommodates five adults easily.
To develop this intelligent architecture, the designers called upon all their creative skills.
Features worth noting include a non-intrusive glovebox freeing up leg room for the front passenger, “slim” front seats providing more leg room at the rear, and raised seats freeing up space under the seats for the feet of passengers at the rear.
Boot and storage
A car for everyday use, the Citroën C3 combines an exceptionally large 300-litre boot with 2/3-1/3 split/fold rear seats. With the backrests folded, the load length totals 1.19m and the removable parcel shelf can be stored easily at the back of the boot.
The Citroën C3 naturally features extensive storage (glovebox, door, central console and fascia compartments, etc.). It can also be fitted with a central armrest with two cubbies or a drawer under the front driver seat.
Onboard acoustics is a key factor in comfort. The Citroën C3 delivers benchmark performance in this area. It damps out vibrations, engine noise, wind noise and road noise to create a quiet onboard ambience.
The C3 addresses soundproofing and noise damping at source, in particular in the engine compartment and doors, to reinforce the cocoon effect.
By day and by night, the Citroën C3 is bathed in a bubble of light: natural light from its many windows, and artificial light from the light sources placed around the passenger compartment.
An ambient lighting system and dimmer, with light sources in the central console cubby and near the dashboard at the front, contribute to the soft, welcoming night-time lighting.
A real sensory cocoon, the new Citroën C3 features the Hifi System. Delivering exceptional acoustic performance, the system includes a third central speaker on the dashboard and an amplified subwoofer in the boot.
If you want to travel with your own music library, the Connecting Box lets you connect yourMP3 player or USB key directly.
For a more relaxed drive, the Citroën C3 boasts a full range of driving aids. For example, with the five-speed manual gearbox, the gear change indicator analyses your driving style and tells you the best time to change up.
The new C3 is also available with cruise control/speed limiter, automatic rain-sensitive windscreen wipers and automatic headlights.
Reinforced body structure
In the event of impact, passengers on the new Citroën C3 enjoy maximum protection.
The cabin has been made stiffer to prevent objects penetrating into the survival cell and to allow other “non-inhabited’ areas to crumple.
Safety is a priority for the new Citroën C3. All passengers enjoy full protection, with six airbags as standard from the second level of trim: two front airbags and side airbags at the front and two curtain airbags built into the roof.
For complete safety, the steering column on the new Citroën C3 retracts in the event of front impact.
The new Citroën C3 sets the highest standards in active safety with, for example, its high-performance brakes. Standard ABS and Electronic
Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) are combined with Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) and automatic hazard warning lights.
The new Citroën C3 also sets high standards in child safety: To install child seats, the two rear side seats are fitted with Isofix anchorage points as standard on all versions.
The new Citroën C3 is also available with optional electric door and window locks. Your children are clearly in good hands.
The new Citroën C3 has matured without gaining weight.
This performance is the result of extensive studies on weight control, with designers studying all the possibilities for making the car lighter.
With its controlled weight and optimised aerodynamics, the new Citroën C3 ensures intelligent management of fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions.
