New Citroen C3 You supermini starts at £12,995

Citroen takes aim at the Dacia Sandero with its new entry level C3, which replaces the C1

2022 Citroen C3 You
  • Exclusively available for online order
  • Five-inch touchscreen as standard
  • On sale now

The Citroen C3 You marks the new entry point in the range, becoming the cheapest Citroen model now available. Citroen is targeting those that previously considered the C1 model - now discontinued - with its new entry-level C3.

Even some city cars including the Hyundai i10 and Volkswagen up! are more expensive than the cheapest C3. Toyota’s new Aygo X also starts at a higher price, and Citroen’s price makes the new C3 You a much closer competitor for the Dacia Sandero. That costs £11,495 in Essential trim and £13,095 in Comfort.

Those worried that the C3 You will feel like it is missing out on features will be happy to hear that Citroen hasn't stripped out all the comforts and technology to keep the price low. The C3 You features a five-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth and DAB radio, plus hill start assist.  

Standard equipment also includes cruise control with a speed limiter, video-camera based lane departure warning, and LED headlights. Added to all this is traffic sign recognition and tyre pressure monitoring.

The C3 You stands out with design touches including a white styling pack, chrome headlight surrounds and a matt finish on the B-pillars. Five colour choices are additional cost options, with the standard metallic Soft Sand paint as standard.

The entry level C3 gets a 1.2 litre three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 82bhp with a five speed manual gearbox.

 Citroen is offering the C3 You exclusively through the online store on its website.
