The Citroen C3 is not just another compact hatchback. It is a car that has a strong personality, a distinctive style, and a rich history. Since its debut in 2002, the Citroen C3 has sold more than four million units worldwide, becoming one of the most successful models of the French brand.
In Brazil, the C3 arrived the same year and quickly won customers' hearts who value design, comfort, and technology. The C3 was also one of the first cars to introduce features such as a panoramic windscreen, air bumps, and connected cam in its segment.
Now, Citroen is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the C3's arrival in Brazil with a new generation that promises to revolutionize the market once again. The new Citroen C3 is based on the Common Modular Platform (CMP), which is shared with other models from Stellantis Group, such as Peugeot 208 and Opel Corsa. The CMP platform allows for greater efficiency, safety, and performance, as well as lower emissions and costs.
The new Citroen C3 also features a bold and expressive design inspired by the concept car CXperience, which combines elegance and robustness. The new C3 has a distinctive front end, with a double-stage light signature that integrates LED daytime running lights and headlights. The grille has a chrome-finished chevron logo that extends to the sides, creating a dynamic and harmonious look. The hood has sculpted lines that enhance the sense of strength and refinement.
The side view of the new Citroen C3 reveals its generous dimensions, with a length of 4.05 meters, a width of 1.75 meters, and a height of 1.54 meters. The wheelbase is 2.54 meters, offering ample space for five passengers and their luggage. The new C3 also has a high ground clearance of 18 centimeters, which gives it an adventurous and versatile character.
The rear end of the new Citroen C3 is equally attractive, with LED taillights that form a 3D effect and a large tailgate that facilitates access to the trunk. The bumper has a black insert that contrasts with the body color and houses the exhaust pipe. The new C3 also has roof bars that add to its practicality and style.
The new Citroen C3 offers a wide range of customization options, with seven body colors, four roof colors, and four color packs that allow for 31 different combinations. The color packs consist of colored inserts on the front bumper, the air bumps, the wheel caps, and the roof bars. The new C3 also has three different wheel designs, ranging from 15 to 17 inches.
The interior of the new C3 is designed to provide comfort, well-being, and connectivity for its occupants. The dashboard has a horizontal layout that creates a sense of spaciousness and modernity. The center console has a 9-inch touchscreen that integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Citroen Connect Nav, which offers real-time traffic information, speed camera alerts, and fuel prices.
