The 3rd generation Citroën C3 has just surpassed the one million mark in terms of vehicles produced at the factory in Trnava, Slovakia. Launched in November 2016, C3 gave a new impetus to the brand by ushering in a new stylistic identity that can now be seen on the range’s current models and confirming a true Citroën brand signature: comfort.
This is an offer full of personality that has been crowned with success. The C3 ranks among the top seven major players in its market in Europe in 2020. It is even among the top three best-selling models in its segment for major European markets. Small wonder the C3 is Citroën’s best seller.
A versatile city car and a symbol of “love at first sight”, the 3rd generation Citroën C3 has many assets. To keep this success story going, Citroën adapted the vehicle in 2020, by reinforcing what makes it so different and appealing: a unique attitude inaugurating the brand’s new front-end identity, more customisation options, benchmark comfort, and a host of modern equipment that are genuinely useful on a daily basis.
Immediately recognisable, C3 has a unique attitude, a distinctive design making it a truly unique proposition. With a modern and protective look, C3 is unlike any other vehicle in its segment, standing out thanks to its colourful personality.
And colourful it certainly is. Six distinct and exciting exterior colours will make C3 stand out in any crowd and it can be jazzed up further by choosing from Onyx Black or Opal White contrasting roof colours.
This is one car you CAN judge it by its cover. It’s definitely here to be recognised. A grill to make other drivers look twice, lighting that shouts style and artistic design highlighted by the distinctive chrome chevrons. The new C3 also features new scratch-proof Airbump® designs with silver effect inserts.
You will feel completely at peace behind the wheel, with noise-cancelling upgrades which are the future of serenity and Advanced Comfort seats to spark a love affair of ergonomic proportions. Peace of mind comes with intuitive aspects like Driver Attention Warning to keep your driving abilities at optimum, and Coffee Break Alert which warns you to take a break after two hours of continuous driving.
And it does not stop there with the new Citroën – further safety features include ABS, EBA, EBD, TCS and ESP – cutting-edge technology to ensure you arrive safely at your destination. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation reads speed limit signs for you, and communicates them via the driver’s display, while the Cruise Control also monitors speed limits and recommends speed changes accordingly.
Under the hood of the C3 Feel, you will find a feisty 60kW, 1.2 PureTech engine that growls when you need it to, but purrs when you are gliding on the open road. You will find it easy to just Keep Calm and Drive with Confidence with the flat-bottomed steering wheel in your hands and there is undeniable harmony of the senses with the stylish trims, curves, and details of the interior.
The C3 Shine is a step up from the Feel and gives you that little extra something, for when you need a bit of adrenaline – 81kW of oomph with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Above and beyond the Feel, it also come with 16” Alloy Wheels, Auto Wipers, Rear Parking Sensors and the added twist of bi-tone body colour options. In addition, a 7-inch Touchscreen with Android Auto/Apple Carplay and Auto Dim Rear-view Mirrors remind you that you are driving the next generation of automotive innovation.
Thanks to Citroën, comfort has become voguish and sophisticated too. The Citroën C3 Feel already became available in South Africa in March 2021, dominating roads, cities, and lives with the colour that fuels individuality, while the Shine now joins the line-up, too.
This new iteration of the Citroën C3 is your best way to fall in-love with the road, with extended winelands tours, mountain pass assaults or urban dashes between high-rises on the must-do list. Get ready for a lot of “Ooh la-la!”
All the bells and whistles with no compromise on comfort, and still the best way for you to get noticed. The Citroën C3 has come to play – rules will be broken.
