Citroen's New C3 XTR

The Citroen C3 XTR

Citroen C3 XTR

With its robust looks and high levels of practicality, the eye-catching C3 XTR – an ideal car for those with an active lifestyle - is now ready to hit the UK’s streets and take its place as the latest great value addition to the popular Citroen C3 range.

The new C3 XTR provides an exciting, and very different, alternative to the other range-topping models that helped to make the C3 the 4th best selling 5 door supermini in the UK last year. Now, with the XTR and its more rugged looks, Citroen’s funky small car will appeal to an even wider range of buyers for whom leisure is an important part of daily life.

With its large black grille, black bumpers, wheel arch extensions and side skirts, the C3 XTR is striking to look at, yet those chunky looks also have a practical side, protecting the new model from everyday knocks and scrapes. Additional features such as 15" alloys, foglamps with aluminium finish surrounds and sleek roof bars give the XTR an extra edge.

The clever modular roof bars are normally positioned lengthways, but the central aluminium sections can be easily detached and locked transversally to transport items of up to 60kg, such as mountain bikes or snowboards. The large panoramic electric sunroof, complete with dual sunblinds, extends the length and width of the roof, and ensures that the cabin is filled with natural light, enhancing the spacious feel inside.

And the C3 XTR offers the same generous amounts of head, leg and elbowroom that are appreciated by all C3 owners. The new model benefits from plenty of on-board storage compartments, one of the largest boots in the class, and the ability to swallow up to 1155 litres of luggage. Citroen’s clever Moduboard function is fitted as standard and provides further flexibility, letting owners divide the boot into various compartments when it is necessary to keep items separate.
