Citroen C3 - Making light work of family travels
The Citroen C3, whilst being a compact city car, is still incredibly stylish and practical.
Built for families, the Citroen C3 features Airbump technology on the side panels to protect the paintwork from any unwanted bumps or scrapes.
The Airbump technology is designed to take the brunt of any knocks from others car doors or accidently opening the door onto a stationary structure.
If you enjoy a more unique design, the Citroen C3 has limitless customisations, with its 7 body colours, 4 bi-tone roof colours and 3 roof decals. You can also take advantage of three interior ambiences.
The Citroen C3 has a wide range of comfort features as standard including Advanced Comfort Features with a specific padded design, a reinforced structure and exceptional lumbar support, making the interior a truly comfortable environment.
If you are travelling with the family or heading away for the weekend, you can benefit from 300 litres of boot space, meaning there’s room for most everyday items as well as luggage.
Inside the cabin, there’s a wide range of storage compartments to keep everything hidden away from sight and keep the passenger area clear.
The three ambiances include Standard, for a refined look and feel, Techwood, which is Scandinavian inspired and Emerald, which is a black-leather effect finish.
To keep in line with the customisable theme, you can choose from 7 different body colours, including Perla Nera Black, Platinum Grey, Polar White, Elixir Red and Spring Blue.
You can also customise the finishing features of the exterior, including the Airbump surrounds, roof and headlight surround.
Lastly, the roof decals come in either Red, Emerald or Techwood, so your car is fully specific to your own requirements.
The C3 design is assertive and energetic, giving it presence when on the road. The large alloy wheels and Airbumps really finish off the design.
As with all models in the range, there’s the recognisable Citroen chrome chevrons that encapsulate the LED daytime running lights.
All Citroen models are focused on creating a safe environment for the occupants as well as other road users.
As with all Citroen models, you can take advantage of a wide range of safety features, including:
Driver attention warning – Ideal for driving in unknown or remote areas, the Driver Attention Warning which omits visual and audible warning alerts if the system detects a reduction in attention.
Active safety brake – If the vehicle detects that there is the chance of a collision, an alert will be sent to the driver. If the driver fails to react, the system will stop the vehicle automatically, to prevent any potential accident occurring.
Reversing camera – If you will be driving in more built up areas such as cities or busy town centres, the 180 degree rear view helps you park safely, especially when reversing, by displaying the view behind you on your touchscreen.
Other features include:
- Speed limit recognition and recommendation
- Automatic intelligent beam headlights
- Hill start assist
- Blind spot monitoring system
- Lane departure warning
- Front parking assistance
- Coffee break alert
- Cruise control/speed limiter
One of the unique features of the Citroen C3 is the integrated ConnectedCAM camera which sits just below the rear-view mirror, allowing you to capture images and videos, which can be used as evidence in the event of an accident.
Inside the cabin, there’s a modern 7” touchscreen which is located in the centre of the dashboard, keeping you connected at all times.
The touchscreen features can be controlled by voice recognition, allowing you to navigate, change the radio station or make a telephone call without taking your eyes off the road.
Citroen’s Connect Nav helps you navigate easily by providing you with information about your route and traffic conditions as well as weather updates and fuel prices.
You can also mirror your smartphone apps using Citroen’s Connect Play function which allows you to access the multimedia content on your smartphone. You can integrate using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
