Curved and sleek, the Citroën C3 is a real pleasure to drive. The sensational panoramic Zenith windscreen gives the car an ultramodern appearance, and by flooding the interior with light it makes for a unique driving experience. Remarkably cost effective and with expansive storage space, the C3 is both practical and stylish. Find it today at Charles Hurst Citroën in Belfast.
The C3 embodies the best of the French manufacturer's design principles. The elegant exterior is at once smooth and sharp, while visually minimalist and dynamic – it has a look unlike any other. The face of the car boasts a new sculpted grille with redesigned Citroën chevrons, and is framed by unmistakable 'boomerang' headlights with LED lighting.
The most striking feature is the breathtaking panoramic Zenith windscreen. Standard on Selection and Exclusive models, or a desirable option with the VTR+, this innovative piece of design engineering offers a completely new driving experience. Composed of one sweep of glass that curves seamlessly into the roofline, it measures a full 1.35 metres from top to bottom, and is visually stunning. Subtle tinting on the upper section of the glass deflects unwanted glare for passengers on sunny days.
The superb driving experience is delivered by a selection of four-cylinder engines ranging up to 1.6-litres in size. The most impressive engine in the range in terms of sheer power is the 1.6-litre Airdream diesel at the VTR+ trim level, and with a powerful 90bhp it can move you and the C3 from 0-62mph in a rapid 12.5 seconds.
The vehicle is brilliantly cost effective; the 1.1-litre petrol engine offers a comfortable 47.9mpg at its peak, whilst the larger 1.4-litre diesel can generate a superb 83.1mpg. Fuel consumption is also reduced by the Gear Efficiency Indicator, which lets drivers know the perfect moment to change to the next gear.
Inside, the C3 exudes style and comfort. There's a choice of interior trims, and drivers will enjoy the Black leather option as much as the Omni Crepe cloth when it comes to comfort. Subtle use of chrome and lacquer accents, combined with lower dashboard colours, adds to the interior's aesthetic appeal.
This model isn't just about style - it's also a car designed for modern living. Clever storage compartments are dotted about the interior, and with all seats up there's an ample 300 litres of boot space. For even more storage possibilities there is the 1/3-2/3 split/folding rear seat, which can be adjusted accordingly. With all seats folded down, drivers can enjoy a generous load length of 1.19 metres for ladders and other long items.
An attractive dashboard design with intuitive fingertip controls hosts an array of features. Automatic air conditioning comes as standard on Exclusive models, and maintains a perfect interior environment. An RDS stereo radio and CD player with device inputs also allows drivers to connect their MP3 players or a USB stick to the centre console dock, and your driving music can be controlled with steering-wheel mounted controls. The C3 is engineered for safety, and ensures 360-degree protection. Up to six airbags comprise part of an advanced safety system, and in case of collision they work together with an impact absorbing structure. Rear parking sensors also help drivers in the tightest of spaces and when reversing.
