All curves, the Citroen C3 is a fun and chic piece of automotive architecture, available from just £9,195. Standing out from the crowd, this comfortable and spacious five-door model has a large and airy cabin that provides up to five occupants with generous head, leg and elbowroom.
Citroen’s ‘little big car’ offers the latest useful technology, such as a SensoDrive gearbox, with steering wheel mounted paddles to change gears, and the Company’s unique Stop & Start system, which can reduce fuel costs by up to 15%.
The C3 also offers drivers the benefits of digital multiplex technology, which allows the addition of special functions like speed-sensitive control of the stereo volume and windscreen wipers, automatic locking of the doors and boot when the car is in motion plus a programmable ‘overspeed’ warning.
There really is no other car quite like the Citroen C3 Pluriel.

With prices starting at £12,295, the unique C3 Pluriel appeals to buyers of all ages.
The funky C3 Pluriel also delivers all the reassurance that comes with being one of the safest cars in its class, according to Euro NCAP - the stiffened body shell, strengthened windscreen pillars and reinforced roof arches helping to provide maximum protection. In addition all models are fitted with ABS, EBD and EBA plus four airbags.
In its award-winning advert, the eye-catching Citroen C4 transforms into a dancing robot, demonstrating how it is ‘alive with technology’. And there really is a serious amount of advanced kit on this new car - a multi-functional fixed-centred controls steering wheel, Lane Departure Warning System, Xenon Dual Function Directional headlamps and cruise control/speed limiter function are all available.

The C4 offers extremely high levels of safety, with a 5 star Euro NCAP rating, whilst the availability of laminated side windows and an alarm helped it to take two 2005 British Insurance Car Security Awards, in the ‘Small Family’ and ‘Performance’ categories.
