Citroën C3

A new driving experience

With its clean, refined body lines, the Citroën C3 is one of the most compact cars in its class but its clever design gives the impression of plenty of space inside. Sweeping glazed areas enhance the feeling of space and freedom.

Exceptional visibility

The Citroën C3 has something different with its sweeping Zenith windscreen. A feat of hi-tech design, the windscreen is exceptionally long at 1350mm, giving you incredible visibility and loads of light. It increases the forward field of vision by 80°and also improves front 3/4 visibility.

A unique panorama

With its slim pillars, the windscreen forms a curving expanse that gives all passengers an amazing view of the scenery and makes travelling in the Citroën C3 uniquely enjoyable.

Sunlight control

The Citroën C3 is like a glass bubble designed to welcome the incoming light and give you the ultimate in visibility. The Zenith windscreen has a dark-tinted area with a stiff sunblind and two sun visors at the top - so the light never becomes a problem

A bright ambience

Enjoy travelling in a bubble of light in your Citroën C3 - day and night, with: natural light from the many glazed sections, artificial light inside the car from the various dimmer-controlled light sources. If you choose an Exclusive model, you'll also get a row of three white LEDs to light up the central console area.

Bold exterior design

With its clean, fluid design lines, the Citroën C3 is beautifully styled. It boasts elegant lines, a dynamic front end, an upper grille with chevrons and an original LED light signature.

Clever design

The Citroën C3 is one of the most compact models in its class, a classic example of good things coming in small packages. At under 4m (3.94m long, 1.72m wide and 1.53m tall) and with a turning circle of 10.2m, the Citroën C3 is ideal for today's busy roads and tight parking spaces. Its neat size is complemented by generous inside space and boot capacity, ranking it among the best new cars in its class.

Outstanding quality

The C3 car sets the standard for quality. See it in every part of the vehicle - in the surface treatment, the chrome trim on the door handles, the weatherstrips and chrome-tipped tail pipes.

Stylish interior

Echoing the outside of the car, the inside of the Citroën C3 is elegant and dynamic. The thermo-coated dashboard is underlined by a cross strip in Tungsten or Moondust Grey. Styling notes in chrome and lacquer and attractive trim features combine for a unique and chic design.

Driving position

The inside of the Citroën C3 is geared to a great drive, with its high-mounted hooded instrument panel, sculpted steering wheel and digital dial. The central console is within easy reach and your driving position is exceptionally comfortable.

Cabin space

Despite its compact exterior, the Citroën C3 is roomy enough to carry five adults in perfect comfort. This is down to exceptional design creativity:

A non-intrusive gearbox freeing up leg room | slim front seats creating more knee room in the back | raised seats to leave space for the feet of the back passengers.

Boot and storage

The C3 car is designed for everyday use, with an unusually spacious boot of 300 litres with 2/3-1/3 split/fold-back seats. Folding the backrests increases the load length to 1.19m.

There's plenty more storage space too (glovebox, door panels, central console, fascia etc), plus a central armrest with two cubbies, and a drawer under the driver's seat.


Citroën C3 reflects your individuality. Chic and distinctive, it’s available in three stylish versions, each with a unique blend of signature design elements, technology and luxury touches. Choosing the version that sparks your imagination will be a matter of following your feelings: more like meeting a new friend than thinking about specifications.
