But $27k drive-away for a limited time.

2018 Citroen C3 Hatch

The funky, zany Citroen C3 hatch has finally made Australian landfall, promising to bring quirky French flair to the family hatch segment. With several no-cost options and an extensive kit list, the C3 might very well have what it takes to tempt you out of a Peugeot 208, Ford Fiesta, or Holden Barina.

Under the bonnet, you’ll find Groupe PSA’s award-winning 1.2-litre turbocharged three-pot petrol mill, putting out a healthy 81kW and 205Nm. Power goes to the front wheels via a six-speed Aisin automatic, and fuel consumption is… not rated, but we have no doubt it’ll miserly.

The C3 is available on our shores in a sole ‘Shine’ trim, which is generously kitted out, as it would have to be for $23,490 (or $26,990 drive-away until 31st March, including metallic paint). On the standard list you’ll find things like Citroen’s innovative Airbumps (that protect your C3 from those pesky carpark dings), 17-inch diamond-cut alloys, a central 7.0-inch touchscreen that handles all major infotainment functions, smartphone mirroring for both Apple and Android devices, a reversing camera, and cloth upholstery.

Citroen really wants its customers to make their cars uniquely their own, and so they’re offering a number of no-cost options to help give the C3 a unique aesthetic. Among the no-cost choices, you’ll find a black finish for the alloys, the option of a white or red roof, or a body-coloured roof if you want to be less conspicuous.

If you’re feeling flush, you can option on several other add-ons to your C3, like metallic paint for $590, Almond Green solid paint for $290, a ‘Hype Colorado’ cabin theme for $400, an ‘Urban Red’ interior theme for $150, a panoramic glass roof for $600, or you can have Citroen’s ‘ConnectedCam’ which acts as both a dash cam and a photo camera, for $600.

All C3’s will be covered by Citroen’s 5-year unlimited-mileage warranty, replete with roadside assistance.
