The new Citroën C3 is a 5-door small car with low emissions. with an optional massive panoramic ‘Zenith’ windscreen.

“The unique Zenith windscreen, which is standard on the top versions, provides a unique driving experience and makes every journey special,” says Lawrie Malatios, General Manager of Citroen New Zealand. “Much more than just a larger area of glass, it is also technically advanced, letting in light in differing amounts at different angles and stopping heat and UV rays. It is another example of Citroen’s advanced technical know-how producing a solution and a better car.”

The C3 is one of the most compact models in the small car sector (9cm shorter than the 207 and Clio), and also offers one of the most spacious cabin environments and 300-litres of boot space.

To promote greener driving, most versions feature a Gear Efficiency Indicator (GEI), which alerts the driver at the optimum moment to change gear – helping them to minimise fuel consumption. Citroen reports a combined cycle fuel economy of 6.3 l/100 km, and a carbon dioxide rating from 145 g/km.

Two petrol engines are offered – one of which was co-developed with BMW.

And, the new C3 features an array of active and passive safety equipment, including a reinforced body structure and ESP, ABS with EBD, up to six airbags, EBA as standard, as well as cruise control with speed limiter on two of the three variants.

The new C3 will be offered in Citroën’s three core trim levels – VT, VTR+ and Exclusive.
