Double top for new Citroen C3 and Grand C4 Picasso


Citroen has pulled off a brace of wins in two UK car publication awards. The new Citroen C3 has been awarded the title ‘Best Urbanite’ in BBC TopGear Magazine’s latest ‘Best Cars in the World’. The BBC TopGear judges were impressed by the model’s ‘fashionable’ looks and ‘calming’ interior that makes it perfect for city life.
Commended for its striking appearance and personalisation options, New Citroen C3 won over the BBC TopGear Magazine judges thanks to its levels of comfort, advanced technologies and its ability to ‘pirouette’ in and out of tight urban spaces.

The fun, French supermini premieres the world’s first fully integrated HD dashcam, which is located just behind the rear-view mirror. ‘ConnectedCAM’ Citroen enables the driver to safely take pictures, record videos and to share them instantly on social media channels, or to use the automatic video function to provide evidence in the event of an accident.

New Citroen C3 is the latest model to benefit from their Advanced Comfort® programme. The visibly comfortable seats, the amount of light from the panoramic glass sunroof, the 7-inch touchscreen – which groups together all of the key vehicle functions – and the keyless entry and start system, all combine to emphasise a feeling of reassurance, comfort and well-being. As well as offering an extensive and coherent range of personalisation options, and two-tone exterior colour schemes, the Airbump® panels are an instantly recognisable option.
New Citroen C3 is also fitted with a choice of efficient powertrains, offering both award-winning PureTech petrol engines and exceptionally economical BlueHDi diesel engines.

Grand C4 Picasso scoops the ‘Best Seven-Seater’ award
Another big winner for Citroen came with the Grand C4 Picasso scoops the ‘Best Seven-Seater’ prize in the UK’s Carbuyer Best Car Awards 2017. New Grand C4 Picasso was chosen by the Carbuyer road-test team because of its running costs, comfort, practicality, reliability and safety, as well as its new technologies, value-for-money and optional extras.

The new Grand C4 Picasso has taken the ‘Best Seven-Seater’ prize in the Carbuyer Best Car Awards 2017. The ultra-practical family car was recognised for its superior comfort and innovative technologies, alongside a supremely spacious and versatile interior.

On this latest win, Louise Murphy, Citroën Ireland’s Marketing Director, commented; “The awards just keep coming for this great family car and that’s because it really is the best vehicle in its class, and the top selling 7-seater in Ireland. Following the ‘Best MPV’ award from Auto Express earlier this year, we are honoured to be able to add the accolade of ‘Carbuyer Best Seven-Seater 2017’ to the list. This award is testament to the Citroën design and engineering teams, and is evidence that style doesn’t need to lose out to practicality.”
