Citroen launches new C3 here

The new-generation Citroen C3 has been launched in Ireland at a starting price of €15,490, writes Trish Whelan.

Available with three petrol and two diesel engines, and a petrol automatic option, the cars comes in a choice of three grades and no less that 36 colour combination options of roof and body colour choices.

Marketing Director of Citroen & DS Ireland Louise Murphy says the new car will use four distinct strengths to attracts new customers to the model — design, customisation, comfort and technology.

Included in the exterior design is a development of the Airbumps which were introduced on the C4 Cactus. The interior has a number of echoes from the same car, including the leather-style door handles.

The new C3 has significantly more legroom for occupants, and provides a generous 300L boot.

Technology includes hill start assist, lane departure warning, reversing camera, speed limit recognition, and blind spot monitoring.

There's also a forward-camera which can be used to video document a trip and is also useful evidence if there's an incident.
