➤ From £16,280 (C3 ‘Feel’ PureTech 83hp manual)
On sale now, the 2020 Citroen C3 gets styling tweaks and new colour schemes, plus a revised interior that includes ‘Advanced Comfort’ seats.
The Citroen C3 supermini has received a facelift for its 2020 model year, with prices starting from £16,280. Up front, there’s a redesigned front end, extra personalisation options and a mildly refreshed interior. Order books are open and first customer deliveries are expected in August.
The updated C3 features a series of minor styling tweaks, while still maintaining the quirky Gallic looks of the third generation, released in 2016. The restyled bonnet and front grille are more angular, chrome LED accents have been added to the lower section of the grille and new LED headlights are now standard fit across the C3 range.
The front and rear bumpers feature new black plastic cladding, as do the wheel arch extensions. Revised Citroen ‘Airbump’ rubbing strips feature on the lower front and rear doors, along with redesigned rear quarter panels at the back of the car.
Despite the changes, the new car has a slightly lower starting price. As before, the range includes ‘Feel’, ‘Flair’ and ‘Flair Plus’ trim grades and even the base ‘Feel’ model gets cruise control, automatic air conditioning and a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The mid-spec ‘Flair’, starting at £17,330, adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a contrasting roof, auto headlights and rear parking sensors. Top-spec Flair Plus is priced from £18,730 and offers bigger wheels, connected satnav, Citroen’s ‘Advanced Comfort’ seats, auto high-beam assistance, extra safety features and a reversing camera.
Citroen has added a number of new personalisation options for the updated C3, with the addition of new ‘Elixir Red’ and ‘Spring Blue’ paint colours. There are also four additional colour packs, alongside four new contrasting roof colours and a new 17-inch alloy wheel design in black and silver.
The revised Citroen C3 will retain its engine and gearbox range from the current car, so there will be the same PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel choices, along with manual and automatic transmissions. Similarly, the chassis of the C3 remains unchanged.
