New Citroen C3 Unveiled In Auto Industry

Citroen has decided to officially reveal the new Citroen C3 months before its scheduled Frankfurt Motor Show debut. The move comes just a few days
The car's front end is completely redesigned, with a sportier front bumper featuring integrated fog lights. The new rear light cluster is designed rather well, and is a nice step up from the current C3 model. We are still not certain if the entire rear bumper will be painted in the same exterior color of the car, or if the lower section will remain black for all vehicles. Either way, the bumper's new shape is a nice touch.

At 3.94 meters long, the new C3 is about 12 cm longer than the current model. The next C3 will also be about 5 cm wider, coming in at 1.71 meters. Turning circle is a tight 10.2 meters, an improvement on the outgoing generation.

One of the first models available will feature the HDi 90 DPFS engine, meant to showcase the car's green cred. The engine expels 99 grams of CO2 per kilometer, making this a more environmentally friendly option. When new powerplants are introduced in 2011, emissions could be reduced to 90 g/km. Start/Stop looks to be included right off the bat, with a retuned system coming with the new engines.
The new Citroen C3 will be built in France at the company's facilities in Aulnay and Poissy. The car will be available beginning in November.
