Citroën C3 creates a cocoon effect, by filtering out the outside world and aims to isolate you from the stresses of driving. As soon as you get inside, you get a real feeling of well-being thanks to the wide seats, which are both visually and physically comfortable, the panoramic sunroof which floods the passenger compartment in light, and the clever storage compartments. This environment immerses you and your passengers in a real bubble separate from the outside world. C3 enables you to feel like you are at home when you are at the wheel.
The passenger compartment is make up of lots of refined elements and soft shapes. This is also mimicked in the styling of the doors, seats and dashboard. The same welcoming and bright materials provide unrivalled passenger comfort and a high quality visual impact.
Design inspiration comes from diverse sources, beyond the automotive world, with touches such as the luggage style door handles and textiles on the dashboard.
Thanks to its panoramic sunroof, the passengers in Citroën C3 benefit from sunlight flooding throughout the passenger compartment, which helps emphasis the feeling of space and openness to the outside world. At any moment, the occupants can change the intensity of the brightness by using the sunblind.
C3’s interior has been designed to give you the impression of being in your own living room. This well-being is reinforced by the horizontal dashboard which gives an impression of space and width of the passenger compartment.
Citroën C3’s seats have been designed with comfort in mind, and as such are wide, comfortable and supportive. Welcoming and equipped with excellent lumbar support, these seats offer top level comfort thanks to the specifically chosen materials that they're made from.
Citroën C3 is also all about fashionable technology. A world first, Citroën offers ConnectedCAM Citroën®, a connected HD camera. This hatchback also offers a range of equipment that makes life easier for the driver: 3D connected navigation with voice recognition, reversing camera, Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Monitoring.
The ConnectedCAM Citroën® on C3 means you can film spectacular scenery, unusual locations and cityscape. This new system uses a camera fitted behind the rear-view mirror to film what the driver sees through the car windscreen. It provides a video log of your everyday driving experiences: - Just click to take a photo and share it on social media. The camera films and stores what’s happening in front of you, so it could also provide valuable information in the event of an accident.
This new emergency braking technology minimises the risk of collision. It starts working from just over 3 mph and is designed to sense pedestrians, moving and fixed obstacles. If the system detects a collision risk, it sends a clear warning and if the driver doesn’t respond it automatically applies the brakes.
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.
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.
*Depending on engine choice
The blind spot monitoring system indicates the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot using a light in the door mirrors. This system, which works on the same principle as the reversing sensors, is a major safety asset, for example on motorways.
This system allows you to combat drowsiness or just a momentary lack of attention at the wheel from 37MPH. When the car crosses a white line without the indicator having been activated, the system’s electronic control unit (ECU) triggers a warning. In this way, you are warned by audible beeps and a visual warning when the line is crossed.
The reversing camera displays the view behind on the cars touchscreen when the reverse gear is engaged.
This view is enhanced with colour guidelines which show the proximity to any obstacle. A real expanded view to make reversing manoeuvres easier!
Are you feeling a bit tired? This system tells you when it is time to have a break. The alert is issued after driving for two hours at speeds of over 40MPH. It is repeated for every hour of additional driving without a break.
The system recognises speed limit signs and gives this information to the driver. This speed can be used to set the speed limiter/cruise control. It works across the entire speed range. The system also detects signs indicating the end of the speed limit.
Citroën C3 features a choice of the very latest PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines.
