New C3 comes with camera feature
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.”
