New Citroen C3 gets the Cactus touch


Hot on the heels of the brand new Nissan Micra, Citroen took the covers off of its B-segment challenger, the C3, at the Paris Motor Show late on Thursday.

Taking after the C4 Cactus, the third generation C3 incorporates the brand's latest styling language as well as the innovative air bump side protection panels on the doors. More funky than is almost seven year old predecessor, the C3 also incorporates Cactus elements on the inside with a free standing touchscreen display, oval dashboard motive and strap-like door handles.

Under the bonnet, the C3 will make extensive use of PSA's revised PureTech three-cylinder turbopetrol and BlueHDI turbodiesel engines, with outputs of 50 kW, 60 kW and 81 kW for the former, and 55 kW and 73 kW for the latter.

Expect to the C3 to make its local debut next year.
