Citroën unveils new C3
French automobile manufacturer Citroën has revealed a new revision of its supermini-sized C3, emphasizing what it says is an energetic look, driver and passenger comfort, and integrated camera technology.
Style elements from Citroën's compact SUV, the C4 Cactus, have been carried over to the New C3.
An exterior-facing camera mounted above the rear view mirror allows the capture of still images and video footage that can "instantly be shared on social media channels, or saved as evidence in the event of an accident."
Driver assistance options include voice-controlled 3D navigation, a reversing camera, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and various utilities such as an SOS pack, geolocation pack, recovery service, and an emergency assistance service.
"The New C3 has all the Citroën values and all the qualities to give the brand new impetus, which is especially important as the previous model accounted for almost one in five sales in Europe," said Citroën CEO Linda Jackson. "A comfortable car with real personality, it is set to appeal to new customers looking for a modern car with character."
"New C3 is a bold, fresh, modern car. It illustrates the ongoing Citroën product offensive," said product director Xavier Peugeot.
