In August, the first deliveries of the updated Citroen C3 are expected, which is available to British buyers at a price of from 16,280 pounds for the entry-level Feel package and up to 21,270 pounds for the Flair Plus variant with highest rated.

Standard equipment in the entire line includes LED headlights, new taillights with a 3D effect, cruise control, a lane departure warning system and branded door panels from the Airbump brand. Inside, buyers get an automatic air conditioning and infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Customers can also choose from two new paint finishes, four new exterior colors and four contrasting shades for the roof.

Inside, the C3 receives updated Citroen Advanced Comfort seats that were removed from the C4 Cactus, as well as the new Techwood interior with faux-wood strips on the dashboard and seat upholstery.

Thus, the range starts with a 1.2-liter PSA gasoline engine with 82 hp. and a torque of 118 Nm. Mid-range and above Flair models are available with a more powerful version of the same 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that develops 109 hp. and 205 Nm of torque.

Customers can also opt for the new Citroen C3 with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 99 hp. and 250 Nm of torque. Like the more powerful gasoline powerplant, it is available only on Flair models and above – although it can only be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
