Citroen updates the C3 supermini

Citroen has announced that its top-selling C3 supermini model is to receive a number of updates as of October 2019.

The alterations are designed to boost the car's appeal and desirability, as well as to simplify the range of trim models based on UK consumers' demand for upmarket features.

Citroen launched its C3 in January 2017 and it has soared in popularity since then, with more than 43,000 units sold.

Not to rest on its laurels though, Citroen intends to discontinue its entry level Touch trim, as well as the Feel Nav edition - so if you've always wanted one, now might be the time to look for new car deals on these styles.

Instead, these are to be replaced with one Flair Plus model alongside another two trims:  Feel and Origins.

Feel will be the entry point into the C3 range and therefore the most affordable, featuring 16-inch Matrix alloy wheels, lane departure warning systems, automotive air conditioning and a choice of up to four optional roof colours.

Next is the C3 Origins Collector's Edition, which has a black bi-tone roof, trademark Airbump panels and an exclusive exterior colour pack, accented with bronze highlights and graphics.

Last but not least is the Flair Plus with an integrated camera system, leather steering wheel, colour reversing camera and the Urban Red interior ambience.

Citroen is also using October as its starting point for making some technical changes to the C3, including the introduction of a more efficient alternator, an air inlet shutter and hidden underbody panels to reduce drag and create a smoother ride.

You can order cars from the new Citroen C3 range via dealerships now, with the first deliveries set for October.

It will be interesting to see if these updates help to continue the popularity of this car, which is fast becoming a staple on Britain's roads.
