Citron has released first details of its new C3, a completely redesigned successor to the popular C3 supermini - a bestseller with over 2 million units delivered worldwide.

Arriving early in 2010, the new C3 boasts contemporary lines and seductive styling, compact exterior dimensions - cleverly matched to exceptional interior space - good environmental credentials and a refined, high quality interior - as well as offering a unique and innovative windscreen design.

On the outside, new C3 gets a sportier edge, with a tauter profile that gives the car a more dynamic, yet robust appearance. Nowhere is the modern styling more apparent than in the design of the new C3's unique Zenith front screen, which flows dramatically up and over the heads of the front occupants. Coupled with slim side pillars, the huge progressively-tinted screen offers a truly panoramic field of vision - along with optimum overhead sun protection.

The screen helps to create a bright and pleasant cabin environment for driver and passengers alike - improving visibility, road safety, driving pleasure, ambience and the overall feeling of spaciousness. 

Inside the cabin, attention to detail and the use of high quality materials, delivers an air of refinement and class, which is complemented by enhanced sound insulation and a pleasant fragrance from the car's integrated air freshener.

Despite its added sophistication, increased comfort and interior space, the new C3 remains one of the most compact vehicles in its segment - and avoids any increase in weight over the current model. At just 3.94m long and 1.71m wide, it offers generous trunk space, along with numerous storage areas throughout the cabin. Occupants also benefit from a feeling of comfort and roominess with a slightly raised seating position for ease of access and improved visibility.From launch, an HDi 90-powered version will be available emitting just 99g/km CO2 - the first full production Citron to emit less than 100g/km. While the arrival of new powerplants from 2011, incorporating second-generation Stop & Start technology, will see diesel versions emitting as little as 90g/km CO2, to be followed by new generation three-cylinder gasoline engines with less than 100g/km CO2.

Modern and perfectly at home in the 21st century, the new C3 can be well connected with USB, iPod and Bluetooth functionality, as well as offering Citron's `MyWay' satellite navigation and Hifi System.
