The C3 is Citroën’s best-selling model, in the top five in the B segment in Europe, as of the end of December 2019. The charismatic and charming C3 is continuing its offensive in its highly competitive segment, by strengthening its unique design, its colourful personality and its unparalleled comfort. The model that gave new drive and energy to the brand in 2016 has since appealed to over 750,000 customers around the world. An "Inspired By You" formula for success, C3 intends to continue its expansion by targeting urban and suburban young people who are creative, optimistic and who are constantly on the go. The model also has strong appeal for fleet and business customers. Within this segment, C3 saw its registrations increase by 12.6% in 2019.
With this change, Citroën’s desire to stand out from the crowd is even more intense. New C3 is the most customisable and comfortable hatch in the segment.
A UNIQUE PERSONALITY
– New design to cultivate the difference. With its assertive style and unique shape within a busy segment, New Citroën C3 continues to shake up the market. The bold style of its new front end, which showcases the new brand signature, was inspired by the CXPERIENCE Concept. New C3 also gains new LED headlights, new 17-inch alloy wheels and new Airbump® designs providing an impressive new look.
– Extended customisation potential: “Inspired By You”, Citroën allows everyone to tailor their car to their desired style. New C3's customisation range extends to 97 combinations, offering a choice of coordinated colour packs centred around four bi-tone roof colours, along with new body colours (Elixir Red & Spring Blue), new exterior trims and the brand-new ‘Techwood’ interior ambiance.
COMFORT AND MODERNITY ON-BOARD
New Citroën C3 has been designed to make every journey a relaxing and pleasant experience.
– A feeling of well-being on-board enhanced by new Citroën Advanced Comfort seats, supplementing a smooth ride and outstanding driving manners (ride quality, steering).
– An easy-going model, with modern technologies combining serenity and modernity. New C3 offers front parking sensors (new) and connected services aiming to improve the driver and passenger experience (Connect Assist, Connect Nav, Connect Play). Equipment that complements the already long list of 11 driving aids for added comfort – including hill start assist, active safety brake, road sign recognition and automatic switching of main beam headlights – providing key safety technologies and peace of mind for customers.
“Over 4,5 million vehicles sold under the ‘C3’ name sold since launch and 750,000 since the arrival of the 3rd generation in 2016! C3 has been a commercial success confirming its status as the Brand's best-seller. This performance places the car as the 5th in its market in Europe. Citroën intends to continue this success story by strengthening what makes it so different and engaging: a unique look, inaugurating the new Brand’s front-end identity, more customisation, a reference for comfort and modern equipment that adds value every day. Underlining what our customers expect from a Brand “Inspired By You". A signal of the importance of this model is that New C3 debuts the Citroën new front end identity, inspired by our latest concept cars”.
