The all-new Citroën C3 is a
fun and funky hatchback that offers low running costs, a large boot and comes
with plenty of technology. This head-turning supermini is available in Touch,
Feel and Flair trim levels and is in our Tunbridge Wells showroom now! Click the link below to arrange a test drive.
Bold styling ensures that the C3 always stands out. The vehicle comes with an Almond Green colour scheme as standard, while a range of optional paint finishes are available too, such as Ruby Red, Cobalt Blue and Polar White. Feel and Flair grades feature a smartly contrasting black roof (or white or red, if you prefer, and at no extra cost). New features include padded ‘Airbump’ side sections that not only help protect the vehicle’s doors but add an extra dimension to the C3’s looks.Touch grades are fitted with 15-inch steel wheels, while Feel and Flair trims come with 16-inch alloys, as well as power-adjustable door mirrors and LED daytime running lights. With Flair grades, roof-coloured door mirrors, dark-tinted rear windows and cornering-assist fog lights are fitted as standard.
A comfortable ride is delivered in the C3’s five-seat cabin, which is upholstered in grey Mica cloth. The driver benefits from a height-adjustable position and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. Other standard features include electric front windows and split-folding rear seats, the latter enabling a 300-litre boot space to be increased to 922 litres.
Audio entertainment is provided by a four-speaker sound system, which includes DAB radio. Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity is featured too.
Feel and Flair trims add automatic air-conditioning, front and rear electric windows, two further speakers, a seven-inch colour touchscreen and Mirror Screen with Apple CarPlay. Available only with Flair grades are a leather-wrapped steering
wheel, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and ConnectedCAM Citroën™.
ConnectedCAM Citroën™ is a smart video system that offers a 120-degree view, full HD recording and two million pixels, and comes with 16GB of memory. The camera is mounted behind the rear-view mirror to film what the drivers sees through the windscreen.
It has a fun application (you can take selfies and record travelogues) and the forward facing camera films and records everything that is happening ahead which could provide valuable information in the event of an accident.

Entry-level Touch trims are
installed with a 1.2-litre 68bhp petrol engine, which is paired with a
five-speed manual gearbox. This delivers up to 60.1mpg and a 109g/km CO
figure. Optimal fuel-efficiency is provided by a 1.6-litre 75bhp diesel unit.
This returns as much as 80.7mpg and emissions as low as 92g/km. The latter is
standard with Flair grades and optional with Touch and Feel trims.
A wide range of driver aids includes Lane Departure Warning System, Speed Limit Recognition, Speed Warning, Coffee Break Alert and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. Passive safety features such as child-proof locks, ISOFIX preparation, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and global seatbelt reminders are also included as standard. The vehicle is secured with remote central locking and an engine immobiliser, while Flair grades also feature an alarm.
