Citroen has updated its C3 supermini model with simplified trim entry levels. The C3 will go from six trim levels to three, with ‘Feel’, ‘Origins’ and 'Flair Plus’.
The updates will take place from October 2019, with the manufacturer hoping the range upgrades will add to the model’s customer appeal and desirability.
The C3 was launched in January 2017 and has since sold more than 42,000 units.
The entry level ‘Touch’ trim level will be discontinued from the UK range, while – partly due to the strength of the ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition – ‘Feel Nav Edition’ also ceases production.
Previous models ‘Flair’ and ‘Flair Nav Edition’ versions will be replaced with one ‘Flair Plus’ model.
‘Feel’ will now become the new entry point into the C3 range, however, the car will still offer 16-inch ‘Matrix’ alloy wheels; MirrorScreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; Lane Departure Warning; automatic air-conditioning; 7-inch colour touchscreen; and a choice of up to four optional roof colours (including body colour) adorn the ‘Feel’ specification.
The ‘Origins’ model is a collector’s edition, which was created to pay tribute to the brand’s 100 years of creativity, marking its centenary celebrations.
Its Collector’s Edition offers a black bi-tone roof, Airbump panels and a bespoke interior ambiance – features that have all proved hugely popular since the C3 ‘Origins’ specification was introduced.
The ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition also features the exclusive ‘Origins’ exterior colour pack, accented with bronze highlights and graphics inside and out.
Since the model launched 62% of C3 sales have been for ‘Flair’ and ‘Flair Nav Edition’ trim levels.
However, the ‘Flair Plus’ is set to replace them both, and will offers a combination of the two with the wider engine and gearbox choice of outgoing ‘Flair’ models with the enhanced specification of ‘Flair Nav Edition’.
The C3 will now offer an increase in efficiency, a choice of four roof colours and nine body colours.
The updated Citroen C3 range can be ordered now, with first deliveries commencing from in just under two months.
