The 2021 Citroen C3 has launched in Australia with a mild facelift, which includes revised exterior styling, more standard equipment and according to Citroen, it has dialled up the charisma and charm. Priced from $28,990 plus on-road costs, the 2021 Citroen C3 is priced the same as the 2020 variant – but features such as LED headlights and front parking sensors are now standard.
Kate Gillis, General Manager Peugeot Citroen Australia, said: “The Citroen C3 has always been the perfect choice for those want their vehicle to reflect their personality and style.
“With this facelift, the C3’s distinctive style reaches new heights and continues to deliver on key driver expectations in relation to technology and comfort.”
Competing with cars such as the Toyota Yaris, Mazda2, Volkswagen Polo, Kia Rio, Skoda Fabia and Suzuki Swift, the 2021 Citroen C3 further injects some French flair into the light car segment. New to the Australian C3 range includes new exterior colours, new colours for the roof and mirrors, a new aqua interior colour theme with revised upholstery and new alloy wheels – the cute ‘AirBumps’, split-headlight face and circular rear continue.
