New C3 comes with cam­era fea­ture

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS -

RE­VEALED – the new Citroën C3 – a fresh, bold and colour­ful B-seg­ment, 5-door su­per­mini that de­liv­ers new lev­els of ad­vanced com­fort and per­son­al­ity to the sec­tor.

The best-sell­ing C3 model, which has al­ready sold more than 3.6 mil­lion ex­am­ples, was orig­i­nally launched in 2002 and the new ver­sion is set to shake-up the mar­ket.

The com­pany be­lieves it is highly cus­tomis­able and of­fers the very lat­est au­to­mo­tive tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing a world premiere for Con­nect­edCAM Citroën™, an on-board HD cam­era that al­lows drivers to share their road-trip pho­tos and videos di­rectly with friends and fam­ily.

The New C3 com­bines a char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally Citroën front-end, with soft lines, flow­ing curves and strik­ing colour schemes to de­liver a pow­er­ful and en­er­getic look.

Highly cus­tomis­able, New C3 is au­da­cious and full of per­son­al­ity by de­sign, to en­sure each owner can cre­ate a be­spoke look.

The exterior has a two-tone paint op­tion, with a choice of three roof colours and com­pli­men­tary touches of colour around the car (fog lights, door mir­rors, rear quar­ter pan­els and on the Air­bump® pan­els). In­side, cus­tomers have a choice of four dif­fer­ent in­te­ri­ors that all de­liver a spa­cious, yet in­ti­mate feel, thanks to the shape of the seats and an un­clut­tered dash­board.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers say the New C3 of­fers com­fort­able seats, a panoramic glass sun­roof that fills the cabin with light, colours and fab­rics in­spired by travel and home in­te­rior de­sign, a 7-inch touch­screen that groups to­gether all of the key ve­hi­cle func­tions and a key­less entry and start sys­tem, all com­bine to em­pha­sise a feel­ing of re­as­sur­ance, com­fort and calm.

The Con­nect­edCAM Citroën™ uses a fully in­te­grated cam­era, be­hind the rear view mir­ror, to cap­ture images and video that can in­stantly be shared on so­cial me­dia chan­nels, or saved as ev­i­dence in the event of an ac­ci­dent.

The ad­vanced driver as­sis­tance sys­tem in­cludes voice-con­trolled 3D nav­i­ga­tion, a re­vers­ing cam­era, lane de­par­ture warn­ing and blind-spot mon­i­tor­ing.

The ef­fi­cient, high-per­for­mance pow­er­train op­tions con­tinue the tech­no­log­i­cal theme with PureTech petrol and Blue­HDi Diesel en­gines, and the lat­est gen­er­a­tion EAT6 fully au­to­matic gear­box avail­able as part of the range.

Linda Jack­son, the com­pay’s CEO, said: “The New C3 has all the Citroën val­ues and all the qual­i­ties to give the brand new im­pe­tus, which is es­pe­cially im­por­tant as the pre­vi­ous model ac­counted for al­most one in five sales in Europe.

“A com­fort­able car with real per­son­al­ity, it is set to ap­peal to new cus­tomers looking for a modern car with char­ac­ter.”
