SPORTING a unique and fresh new look and the same ‘Airbump’ technology made famous by the Cactus model, the new Citroen C3 compact hatch has burst into Australian showrooms this week.
It brings with it two segment-first safety features, including an optional factory-fitted social media friendly dash-cam known as ConnectedCAM, and a myriad of customisation and colour combinations.
Inside and out, the new C3 has been designed and engineered using Citroen’s Advanced Comfort program to deliver a vehicle that promotes comfort, well-being and enjoyment, and includes wider, more comfortable seating and easy to use technology.
Standard segment-first safety features on all-new C3 include traffic sign speed recognition and a lane departure warning system, while a choice of 33 exterior colour combinations punctuates customisation levels, with nine body and three roof colours available.
Linked to this expansive colour palette are coloured highlights applied to door mirrors, fog lamp surrounds, Airbump and rear quarter panels, all matched to the roof colour, while inside, the Mica Grey interior can have Urban Red highlights.
For those looking for a standout interior the Hype Colorado option adds Burnt Orange inserts to the dash, seats and steering wheel hoop.
Managing Director for Citroen Australia, Anouk Poelmann, said the new C3 cuts through the segment norms, delivering a unique and individual vehicle.
“Citroen has a proud history of delivering practical vehicles with panache and the all-new C3 delivers all the practicality motorists need, with a personality that is distinctly Citroen,” Ms Poelmann said.
“The all-new C3 is not just characterful and fun, it also features useful technology and segment-first safety features that motorists will use and appreciate daily.”
The all-new Citroen C3 Shine carries a recommended retail price of $23,490 and will launch with a $26,990 drive away price (including metallic paint) till March 31.
Additionally, all Citroen feature a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and five-year roadside assist program.
