2010 Citroen C3 debuts with big forehead
Citroen has never sold well in the GCC. In fact, few people even know that Citroen sells cars in the UAE. Even fewer know what the existing Citroen C3 hatchback looks like. And now the 2010 Citroen C3 has already debuted in Europe.
The most obvious new feature of the 2010 Citroen C3 is the optional new “Zenith” panoramic windshield that forgoes a traditional sunroof for an extended frontal glass area. All the expected features are there, including more space, MP3 and navigation options. A start-stop feature will be introduced later to improve fuel economy.
As is usual with Citroen, the engines are a letdown. At launch, the C3 will be available with 95 hp 1.4-litre and a 120 hp 1.6-litre petrol engines, as well as two diesel motors. More engine choices will be added in 2011.
