Citroen will bring two new concepts – the C3 Red Block and C6 Noir et Blanc – to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Citroen claims that these two cars feature “expressive approaches to colors and materials.” These cars are called concepts but they’re expected to arrive as limited edition-production models in the near future.
The C3 features a bold combination of red and gray while the C6 concept boasts a classy exterior finished in white and sporting a few extra chrome details at the front, raising its appeal to a more grown-up group.
If it does go into production, it’s expected to feature a long list of interior features as standard. The C6 has elegant proportions and is fitted with a unique rear window but it’s long overdue for a complete makeover as its design dates back to 2006. It takes inspiration from the Lignage prototype that was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring of 1999.
The main selling point of this car is its innovative technology that is different from what German manufacturers provide in this segment.
Included in this list are a head-up display, lane departure warning system, xenon directional headlamps, Hydractive suspension with electronically controlled springing and damping, and a rear spoiler that automatically adjusts to speed and braking.
As its size dictates, the new Citroën C3 is a player in the B segment. It would continue the momentum built by its predecessor, of which more than 2 million were sold around the world. It is targeted towards customers who want to experience not only an enjoyable but also a highly rewarding ownership. It should be able to cater to the needs of this type of customers as it does not only deliver practicality and efficiency; it also offers style, durability, safety and distinction.
The new Citroën C3 offers an interior that is not only functional and roomy but is also very refined. Moreover, it has the panoramic Zenith windscreen. With these attributes, the new Citroën C3 should be able to stand out from the rest of the vehicles in the B segment, making it appealing to a wide range of customers seeking a vehicle that has its own individuality.
Likewise, the new Citroën C3 would also be appealing to young families as well as single professionals seeking a small vehicle that is full of fun, pleasure and distinctiveness and features a practical space and outstanding fuel economy.
Moreover, it would be appealing to older drivers seeking a roomy and comfortable compact car featuring high levels of specification. Interestingly, the new Citroën C3 has been developed to strike a great balance between style and practicality, while most small cars tend to favor either of the two.
In terms of exterior style, the new Citroën C3 retains some of the familiar lines of the previous. However, the latest version of the C3 – now firmer and sleeker – has been inspired by premium models in the B-segment and by the sector above.
Its body features a more dynamic design marked by smooth lines that flow over the car’s chrome trimmed surfaces. The border between the roof and the Zenith windscreen, meanwhile, features chrome detailing.
The Citroen’s new purposeful look is particularly enhanced by its gaping front grill, drawn wings and boomerang-shaped headlights. Citroen is also offering personalization options, like the availability of 10 body colors, 15-inch alloy wheels (available on VTR+ models) and either 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels on Exclusive versions.
