Citroen C3 / Overview / Impressive and reasonable on-road performance

The new Citroen C3 is equally at ease in the city and out on the open road, with well-balanced road manners, ultra-controlled mass, optimised drag of 0.30, and a range of responsive and efficient engines.

The new Citroen C3 is powered by the new-generation PureTech petrol engines, with 3 cylinders and a 1 or 1.2 litre capacity. These powerplants are economical on fuel and CO2 emissions but extremely lively in use. Some 52 patents were filed in the development of the new engine generation in order to bring down weight and bulk, optimise combustion and reduce friction, the aim being to cut fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by around 25% while making the powerplants more responsive. In short, the PureTech engines provide excellent performance with no detriment to pleasure. The VTi 68 and VTi 82 engines achieve remarkably low fuel consumption, between 4.3 and 4.5 l/100 km, and CO2 emissions, between 99 and 104 g/km. The VTi 120 engine, available with a manual or automatic gearbox, rounds out the petrol engine offer.

The new Citroen C3 is available with five diesel engines, the HDi 70, e-HDi 70, HDi 90, e- HDi 90 and e-HDi 115. The three powerplants with micro-hybrid e-HDi technology boast the most efficient Stop&Start system on the market. The new Citroen C3 has some of the lowest fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in its category, at as low as 87 g/km.
