Citroen Unveils All-New C3 Hatch

Citroen’s all-new C3 will burst into Australian showrooms bringing with it two segment-first safety features, myriad customisation and colour combinations, Citroen’s unique Airbump technology and an available ConnectedCAM® that links the journey to the Cloud.

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.

Standard segment-first safety features on all-new C3 include Traffic Sign Speed Recognition and Recommendation and Lane Departure Warning.

Wide, comfortable seats, easy-to-use technology and a comfortable drive are all-new C3’s hallmarks.

 A choice of 33 exterior colour combinations punctuates the comfort and technology focus with customers able to choose from nine body and three roof colours.

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.

Inside, the personalisation continues with the standard Mica Grey interior able to be optioned with an Urban Red highlights package which adds red seat and dash highlights.

For those looking for a standout interior the Hype Colorado option adds Burnt Orange inserts to the dash, seats and steering wheel hoop.

Comfort and design is backed by segment-first features including Citroen’s unique ‘Airbump’ technology and an available Citroën ConnectedCAM®, an on-board HD camera making all-new C3 the first vehicle to feature a factory-fitted ‘dash-cam’ that also lets drivers share their road trip photos and videos directly to the Cloud.

Managing Director for Citroen Australia, Anouk Poelmann, said the all-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,” Poelmann said.

“Now more than ever, consumers are looking at how they can stand out from the crowd and how their purchase reflects their individuality and personality. The all-new C3 is just the vehicle for them.

“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,” she added.

The all-new Citroen C3 Shine carries a recommended retail price of $23,490* and will launch with a $26,990 driveaway price (including metallic paint) till March 31.

Additionally, all Citroen feature a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and five-year roadside assist program.
