The C3 has been updated with new looks and new engine options and it looks like it’s about to give the Fiesta a run for it’s money!

Citroen just released a batch of images and info just ahead of its unveiling at the Geneva motor show.

The back and front of the C3 has been beefed up a bit and now features the extended double chevron grille fitted to Citroen’s latest models.

New features include the LED daytime running lights and a new body-coloured splitter in the lower air intake, which was previously black plastic.


There are a few engine options, you can chose from the new three cylinder petrol PureTech available in 1.0-litre or 1.2-litre capacities.

The 1.0-litre VTi PureTech replaces the old four-cylinder 1.1 VTi, and produces 67bhp – 7bhp more than the outgoing engine. It’s also capable of 65.7mpg, which is an improvement of 17.8mpg. The 1.2VTi PureTech produces 81bhp and manages 62.8mpg.


The VTi 120 and a range of diesels – including an 87g/km Airdream model – continue in the C3 range.

The updated C3 will go on sale shortly after it’s unveiling at Geneva, with a starting price of around £11,000.
