Citroën C3 Safety

In the event of an impact, passengers on board the Citroën C3 will benefit from maximum protection. We call it all round, on road protection. With up to six airbags, a retractable steering column in the event of a collision from the front and an impact absorbing structure, the C3 has been designed with 360 degrees of safety in mind. The cabin has also been made stiffer to prevent objects from penetrating into the passenger cell, while allowing other non-inhabited areas to crumple.

Six Airbags

Driver and passenger safety has always been at the forefront of every Citroën model, and the C3 is no different. Quite simply, safety is a priority for the Citroën C3; with six airbags as standard on VTR+ and Exclusive models: two front airbags and side airbags and two curtain airbags built into the roof.

Advanced Safety features

The Citroën C3 has a range of advanced technology on board to help keep you safe in hazardous conditions.

ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) adjusts braking pressure electronically to stop the wheels locking.

Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) spreads braking power evenly to all four wheels, while automatic hazard-warning lights come on to warn others.

Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) boosts braking power instantly when you brake hard.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) on e-HDi 70 Airdream EGS, e-HDi 115 Airdream 6-speed manual, e-HDi 90 Airdream ETG6 models and optional on VT, VTR+ and Selection keeps the car stable if it slips when cornering. A traction control system immediately brakes the drive wheels when in a skid.
