Citroen C3 Shine brings some character and flair to a crowded small SUV segment.
With two tone colouring highlighting fog lights, external mirrors, airbump door trims and roof, the C3 has unique styling. The interior matches this unique style with a definite French flavour.
Citroen C3 hatch is powered by a 1.2L PureTech drivetrain paired to a six-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels only.

The transmission is a little jerky around town, but the engine is willing and economical.
Safety is a focus with reversing camera, driver alert, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and automatic headlights and wipers.
Priced around the $30,000 mark, there are driveaway deals that your local dealer can discuss, the Citroen C3 is an urban SUV for those buyers looking for something with individuality.
