The newly designed front end is arguably the most relevant upgrade of the new Citroen C3, whose Brazilian version can be admired in the promo video above. The car featured in this footage will go on sale in South America, but it uses new aesthetics that will be adopted by its European counterpart as well. The revised B-segment model of the French manufacturer comes with a restyled front fascia, new headlights, LED daytime running lights and a chrome insert which makes the iconic ‘Double Chevron’ logo even more eye-catching.
Inside, the only difference in the comparison with the previous generation concerns the air vents, which are kind of round shaped instead of rectangular. The Citroen C3 facelift will be offered with a new range of colors for both the interior and for the body. As for the engine range, it will be the same: a 1.5-litre with direct injection 8v Flex (delivering 93 bhp) and a 1.6-litre with direct injection 16v Flex Start (redited with an output of 122 hp).
The French carmaker is expected to unveil the new European version of the model at the upcoming 2012 Paris Motor Show, which will take place from September 29th through October 14th.
