CITROËN C3 Pluriel attracts attention


CITROËN’s C3 Pluriel really does embody the words fun, fresh and functional. It’s five cars in one - a 3-door saloon, a Panoramic Saloon, a Cabriolet, a Spider and a Spider Pick up. And as well as looking great, the CITROËN C3 Pluriel drives brilliantly and is packed with an unrivalled level of equipment, safety features, technology and storage.

The CITROËN C3 Pluriel combines the practicality of a supermini with the excitement of a convertible. It’s a deceptively spacious 4 seater (in fact, it’s one of the roomiest in its class), and the secret of its versatile appearance is in the roof design, which features an electric full-length retractable roof and removable roof arches. It looks stylish too, and draws attention wherever it goes.

Safety is paramount in the CITROËN C3 Pluriel. All models feature anti-lock braking (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Emergency Braking Assistance. You can find out more about these in the Technology section. Four airbags, 3-point inertia reel seatbelts, a specially stiffened body shell, reinforced windscreen pillars and roof arches, plus strengthened seat backs and head rests all add to the sense of safety and stability. It’s no surprise it has a four-star EuroNCAP rating.

A car as unique and inspiring as the CITROËN C3 Pluriel also has some unique and inspiring accessories - each designed specifically to enhance or personalise your CITROËN C3 Pluriel, or add to its convenience, storage and safety features. For example, there’s a rain cover to protect the CITROËN C3 Pluriel from sudden downpours when it’s parked. Or the roof arch storage stand. Or the contoured mudflaps that reduce the effects of road spray and prevent paintwork damage, and the Tom Tom sat-nav to get you to your destination.

There’s a choice of three engines - and each blends performance and economy in the city, or the open road. There’s the 1.4i petrol and 1.4HDi diesel engines, plus the 1.6i 16V engine with SensoDrive paddleshift five-speed sequential gearbox - for those who prefer instant fingertip gear changing.

The CITROËN C3 Pluriel - open to anything as long as it’s fun.


The CITROËN C3 Pluriel attracts attention wherever it goes. And it’s no surprise with its distinctive styling featuring body colour bumpers and skirts, and when it’s guaranteed to look good, roof arches that contrast with the exterior body colour. But the CITROËN C3 Pluriel really turns heads when it’s in one of its five different body configurations - you just need to check the weather and decide which one you prefer today.

Techno style headlamps and rear lights add to the fun, contemporary look and to make your CITROËN C3 Pluriel even more eye-catching, the ‘Elegance Pack’ on selected models takes the style dial even higher, featuring aluminium bumper inserts, rubbing strips and door handles.

There’s a great choice of attractive paint colours and finishes for your CITROËN C3 Pluriel, including pearlescent or metallic paint options. Plus, your exterior choice of colour is reflected in the interior to create a contemporary look and feel.


Inside, the CITROËN C3 Pluriel is about comfort, style and modern chic. It has variable power-assisted steering, height and tilt adjustable leather steering wheel for the optimum driving position, aluminium effect front vents, electric windows front and rear, electric door mirrors, and a 6-speaker CD player.

Creating space is no problem either. Simply fold the rear seats down and you have an extensive, completely flat floor from the back of the front seats to a downward opening tailgate that makes loading easy.

Whichever colour exterior you choose, there’s a perfectly co-ordinated and upholstered interior, and all models feature body-colour inserts on the front doors and rear panels to further enhance the CITROËN C3 Pluriel’s individuality.


The CITROËN C3 Pluriel is fun to look at and fun to drive. Its long wheel-base, wide tyres and reinforced body shell ensures it handles responsively whatever the road conditions. The digital display provides all the driver information you need clearly, while unnecessary glare can be minimised when driving at night by selecting the ‘black panel’ instrument lighting. The elevated front seats and windscreen provide excellent visibility of the road ahead. And a programmable, audible ‘over speed’ warning helps you keep your speed in check.

And with its range of active and passive safety features, such as hazard lights that automatically activate when you brake sharply, front and lateral airbags, ABS, Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) you can feel safe and secure however demanding the roads are.


On the open road or in the inner city, the CITROËN C3 Pluriel’s range of engines balance performance with fuel economy. Choose one of two petrol engines or the popular diesel option. The CITROËN C3 Pluriel 1.4i offers an attractive combination of performance and economy.

Raise the bar with the dynamic 1.6i 16v SensoDrive engine and experience the power of 110hp and the fingertip paddle-shift gear changes from a five-speed sequential gearbox. And if you want to keep running costs as low as possible, the CITROËN C3 Pluriel 1.4HDi diesel offers great driving pleasure and an impressive 60.1 mpg on the combined cycle.
