Citroen C3 Sales Healthy

Published Date: 15th Jan 2013

Despite Citroen expanding it's small car range in recent years the Citroen C3 Supermini is still it's best-selling small vehicle, here's a quick outline of the latest C3:


The majority of changes to the styling are centred around the front end of the vehicle, it gets a new grille design that brings the C3 in-line with the newer C4 and there's also new LED daytime running lights integrated into the front bumper, positioned above new foglight housings. The C3 still retains the familiar stylish look of the Citroen family.


The C3 is spacious for a vehicle in it's class. The boot for example (300L) is bigger than the Ford Fiesta and a 2-1 split rear folding seat gives plenty of additional storage if required. For passengers front and rear leg room is generous for a supermini.

The dashboard, dials and console are eye-catching with chrome or brushed steel trims and the quality of materials and finish inside the latest C3 is a major improvement on it's predecessors putting it equal to if not better than rival superminis in it's class.
