Citroën C3

The Zenith Windscreen

The panoramic Zenith windscreen or "The Visiospace" rises high above your head for a feeling of openness and airiness. It has been very carefully designed to ensure that this open feel is not compromised by the glare of the sun. The latest in glazing technology ensures that the upper section is well-tinted from sunlight. Should you wish, the CITROËN C3 is equipped with large sliding sunblinds and sun visors. With the panoramic windscreen, the road ahead and world around become features of the interior.


iPod connectivity, USB socket with AUX: Those who want to travel with their music library can do so as the CITROËN C3 comes with a Connecting Box, consisting of a USB socket on the central console, located next to the jack, and a Bluetooth® hands-free kit. Equipped with audio streaming technology, this system plays music stored on the mobile, with no need to hook up to the audio system. Passengers can play their favourite songs recorded on their phones or their iPods in the order they like. All these portable devices can be stored on a station located on the top of the dashboard.

In-built Air Freshener

The built-in scented air freshener, placed on the central air vent, diffuses the chosen fragrance via the air-conditioning system. The passenger can switch the system on or off with a knob, or use the knob to adjust the quantity of perfumed air: a world first.

Dynamic Lines

Refined curves and taut lines, the style of the CITROËN C3 brims with confidence. The design is elegant, foregoing the need for unnecessary styling additions. The large clear headlamps curve high up onto the front for an assertive, avant garde look. The pronounced wheel arches and neat styling curves of the body offer a contemporary look and hint at the dynamic character of the car. The generous glazed area, key to the style and appeal of the CITROËN C3, is underlined in chrome to confirm the importance of light within the car. From front to rear, the CITROËN C3 is the car that projects style and inspires glances at every turn.

Refined Details

The interior of the CITROËN C3 is inspired by cues from premium vehicles. It expresses CITROËN's upmarket shift to bring customers the highest levels in comfort and prestige. Echoing the exterior, the interior styling of the CITROËN C3 is a harmony of flowing lines and aerodynamics – witnessed in the horizontal design of the dashboard, the ‘floating’ visor on the instrument cluster, the sculpted steering wheel and the wheel’s recentred, driver-focused controls. Featuring a new instrument cluster combining two analogue dials and a LED dial, the dashboard exudes both retro chic and high tech appeal. The CITROËN C3 attracts through its styling and sophistication.

Generous Space

The CITROËN C3’s compact exterior style opens to reveal a car with ample space for 5 people.

More Leg Room

CITROËN designers used all of their creativity to design the intelligent architecture of this 5-seater hatchback, which boasts the following:

  • a roomy lower dashboard, with an unintrusive but generously sized 13-litre glove box (xxx), that frees up leg room for the front passenger.
  • This subtle advantage enables the passenger to move 8cm further forward than the driver, providing more leg room for the rear passenger behind
  • slim front seat backs, for 3cm extra leg room for back seat passengers
  • semi-high seat bases that free up space under the seats for rear passengers and provide ideally positioned, comfortable seating for all passengers, enhancing onboard access and visibility.

Modular Storage

For optimum load capacity, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats fold down with just one hand in a single movement, from the boot or from the back seats.

Best-in-category boot volume

Together with generous cabin space, the CITROËN C3 also features a spacious, 300-litre boot. The design of the boot was also optimised, with load sill height down to 22.7cm and width increased to 104cm.

Child Safety

For child safety, the two rear seats are equipped with ISOFIX anchor points to secure proper installation of child seats.

Seat Belts

All five seats are equipped with inertia-reel seat belts and three anchor points, along with force limiters.


Safety and security were top priorities in the development of the CITROËN C3. In the event of impact, the body structure is designed to absorb and redistribute the force throughout the body shell and away from occupants. Furthering the sense of security are 4 airbags in the front section of the vehicle: 1 in front and the side of the driver, as well as the front passenger.

Brake System

With passenger safety as a priority, the CITROËN C3 is fitted as standard with all-around disc brakes and ABS combined with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and emergency brake assist (EBA)
