Citroen C3: Facelift sees overhaul of interior and exterior
Citroen has announced a comprehensive refresh for the C3, with changes to both the exterior and interior of the supermini.
Top five things you need to know about the refreshed Citroen C3

Citroen C3 styling
The Citroen C3 continues with its unique style and shape, offering a new front end which showcases the new brand signature and was inspired by the CXperience Concept from 2016.
New LED headlights, 17in alloy wheels, and new Airbump strips along the side of the car all combine to give the C3 a renewed vigour.
Citroen C3 interior
Comfort aims to be one of the key features of the refreshed C3, and this is achieved in part by the new Advanced Comfort seats similar to the ones found in the C4 Cactus.
Further peace of mind comes via a nod to the world of La Maison Citroen (Techwood colour scheme) and Scandinavian furniture, with an armrest on the driver's side for greater everyday comfort. All of this ensures the cabin is a ‘cosy’ bubble for drivers and passengers.
Citroen C3 infotainment
The C3 offers a 7in touchscreen with a new ‘glossyappearance’ and voice recognition can also control navigation, telephone and radio. TomTom Live Traffic also provides real-time traffic information so that you can find the best route.
Mirror Screen technology compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also features.
Citroen C3 engines and performance
The C3 features the same tried and tested Euro 6-compliant engines as found on the outgoing model. These consist of a three-cylinder PureTech 83 and 110 petrol as well as diesel BlueHDi 100.
Citroen C3 safety
The refreshed C3 offers several driver assistance technologies which aim to enhance safety as well as offer a hassle-free driving experience.
Front parking sensors as well as hill start assist, active safety brake, road sign recognition and automatic switching of main beam headlights are just some of the key safety technologies which provide peace of mind for customers.
