Ahead of its world debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show on September 29, the 2017 Citroen C3 was spotted uncovered at the venue by AutoHome, showing off its bold, Citroen Cactus-like styling. The new C3 will go on sale in European markets in January 2017.

The new C3 will go on sale in European markets in January 2017.

At launch, it will be available with a selection of PureTech three-cylinder petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines, with the maximum output being 108 hp. It will be available with manual and automatic gearbox options. Further details on performance figures will be revealed at its debut tomorrow.

The exterior of the new C3 strays away from the DS-inspired design for retro yet contemporary styling that borrows cues from its bigger sibling, the C4 Cactus. The highlights are a dual tone exterior color option, two-tier headlamps characteristic of Citroen's latest products and a belt of Airbumps across the lower profile that absorb light impacts.

The new C3 is the first car to feature the Citroen ConnectedCam, connected to a 120° wide angle full HD camera with GPS and 16 GB internal memory which records your drive. It also comes equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that offers Apple Carplay, Android Auto and MirrorLink smartphone integration compatibility.
