Mk2: (2010–present)Edit

The C3 Mk2 gets a new panoramic windscreen adopted fron the C4 Picasso which expands the driver's vision by up to 80 percent along with slimmer A-pillars and progressive tint.

The whole design of the new C3 is inspired by the DS3 with the pronounced grille and a more agressive headlight treatment. The roof is also flatter. The car has grown 90 mm longer and 43 mm wider and the turning circle has been reduced from 10.7 m to 10.2 m.

Economy wise, the C3 gets a new stop/start system and 5 and 6 speed automated manual gearboxes. In the future, Citroën will release a 3 cylinder engine with CO2 emissions of less than 100 g/km.
