Citroën introduces new ‘C-Series Edition’ trim level across C3, C3 Aircross, C4, ë-C4 and New C5 Aircross model ranges

Citroën UK has added a new ‘C-Series Edition’ trim level across its popular C3, C3 Aircross, C4, ë-C4 Electric and New C5 Aircross vehicle ranges. Previously available only to C3 and C3 Aircross buyers – and formerly labelled ‘C-Series’ – ‘C-Series Edition’ is now a standard trim level across Citroën’s core model ranges.

The ‘C-Series Edition’ trim has been tailored specifically for the UK market and is a further example of Citroën’s ‘Fair Pricing’ commitment, offering transparent prices and convenient ways of buying a well-specified new car. 

C3 ‘C-Series Edition’
The previous ‘C-Series’ quickly became the best-selling trim level in the C3 range. Buyers appreciated the model’s value for money and generous equipment levels as standard. The new C3 ‘C-Series Edition’ models come as standard with distinctive 16-inch ‘Matrix’ alloy wheels, dark-tinted rear windows, as well as a contrasting bi-tone roof in either black or white. As with all ‘C-Series Edition’ models, C3 ‘C-Series Edition’ features a characteristic Anodised Bronze Colour Pack with bronze detailing around the front fog lights and Airbump® capsules, plus ‘C-Series Edition’ badging on the front doors. 

C3 ‘C-Series Edition’ models also feature electrically folding door mirrors, as well as rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. The Visibility Pack adds automatic headlights, automatic windscreen wipers and front fog lights. A seven-inch capacitive touchscreen features DAB digital radio, Bluetooth® functionality and comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto.

C3 ‘C-Series Edition’ is available with either a 1.2-litre PureTech 83 petrol engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, or a 1.2-litre PureTech 110 petrol powerplant with a six-speed automatic gearbox. Prices start at just £17,000 MRRP OTR.

C3 Aircross ‘C-Series Edition’
