  • Citroen C3 gets revised styling and colour schemes for 2020
  • On sale now
  • Revised interior includes new ‘Advanced Comfort’ seats

The Citroen C3 supermini has been facelifted for 2020 and has a price tag of £16,280. There’s a redesigned front end, extra personalisation options and a mildly refreshed interior. It’s available to order now, with first customer deliveries expected in August.

The revised C3 features a series of minor styling tweaks, while still maintaining the quirky looks of the original car. The restyled bonnet and front grille are more angular, chrome LED accents have been added to the lower section of the grille, and new LED headlights are now standard fit on every C3 model.

The front and rear bumpers feature new black plastic cladding, as do the wheel arch extensions. Revised Citroen ‘Airbump’ rubbing strips feature on the lower front and rear doors, along with redesigned rear quarter panels at the back of the car.

Despite the changes, the new car has a slightly lower starting price. As before, the range includes Feel, Flair and Flair Plus models, with even the base model getting cruise control, automatic air conditioning and a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Flair, starting at £17,330, adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a contrasting roof, auto headlights and rear parking sensors. Top-spec Flair Plus is priced from £18,730 and offers bigger wheels, connected sat nav, Citroen’s Advanced Comfort seats, auto high-beam assistance, extra safety features and a reversing camera.

Citroen has added a number of new personalisation options for the updated C3, with the addition of new ‘Elixir Red’ and ‘Spring Blue’ paint colours. There are also four additional colour packs, alongside four new contrasting roof colours and a new 17-inch alloy wheel design in black and silver.

The inside gets plusher Advanced Comfort seats taken from the C4 Cactus and a new ‘Techwood’ trim option, which adds faux-wood accents to the interior.

The revised Citroen C3 will retain its engine and gearbox range from the current car, so there will be the same Puretech petrol and BlueHDi diesel choices. Similarly, the chassis of the C3 remains unchanged.
