All-new Citroen C3 breaks cover at Paris Motor Show
The five-door supermini will rival cars such as the Renault Clio, Ford Fiesta and Seat Ibiza.
The five-door supermini has more than a smattering in common with the quirky C4 Cactus, with the addition of airbump plastic side protection panels to avoid car park dings, and split-level headlights.
For the exterior, you can go for a whopping nine body colours, two-tone paint, three different roof colours, and contrast colour trims around the lights, mirrors, rear panels and airbump panels.
For the interior, there’s plenty of room to put your own stamp on things, with plenty of customisable options, including interior paint in a wide, vibrant colour palette, textile wraps, and chrome finishes.
Citroen has added a ConnectedCam, which uses a camera in the rear view mirror to act as a dashcam (apparently the first car with an integrated dashcam). It’s perfect for recording footage after an incident, or, if you can’t resist taking selfies and videos while driving, that too.
There’s also a 7-inch touch-screen – with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink – keyless entry, a reversing camera, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring. Plenty of storage space has been built in, with a central cubby, large storage bins in the front doors, and, Citroen claims, the largest glove box in the segment.
The boot is a sizeable 300-litres, which is the same as the Renault Clio, and slightly bigger than the Ford Fiesta and Seat Ibiza.
The new C3 is due to arrive in UK showrooms at the start of 2017. Prices are expected to start at around £11,000.
