Hydractive III+ suspension
The Hydractive III+ suspension offers the ideal compromise between comfort and roadholding by adapting to changing driving conditions.
The Hydractive III+ suspension uses shock absorbers to dampen the movements of the bodyshell and actuators to transmit loads from the suspension to nitrogen-filled spheres that act as springs.
The two firmness and absorption settings guarantee that the suspension is always ideally adapted to the driving conditions. The vehicle’s sensors (steering angle, acceleration, braking, wheel displacement, etc.) select the firm or soft settings in real time.
The suspension also features a Sport mode. In Sport mode, the behaviour of the vehicle is more dynamic, as roadholding takes priority over comfort.
The Hydractive III+ suspension is combined with real-time attitude control. The height of the vehicle remains constant, irrespective of the load onboard, and the height is lowered automatically on motorways to improve the aerodynamics.
The pneumatic suspension on the rear axle makes for a more comfortable ride by filtering out any bumps in the road surface.
The pneumatic suspension system comprises an ECU, an air supply unit, two height sensors and two pneumatic cushions. The height sensors measure the distance from the stop. When the sensors detect a change in this distance, and, therefore, in the vehicle’s attitude, they inform the ECU, which then sends a message to the compressor to correct the distance and return the vehicle to the correct height.
It also adjusts the sill height when stationary for easier loading and to maintain the same attitude, irrespective of the onboard load. Comfort, safety and a comfortable drive are therefore guaranteed.
The laminated windows are made up of two glass sheets separated by a plastic insert that offers outstanding soundproofing properties.
The laminated windows absorb acoustic vibrations and help to filter out wind noise and noise from outside the car for a quieter ride.
They also offer protection against dangers from outside the car. Unlike conventional windows, they absorb the energy that is released in the event of an accident and crack without shattering.
The exceptional visibility offered by the panoramic windscreen from every angle makes for a whole new travelling experience.
The panoramic windscreen, which first came into series production on the Citroën C4 Picasso, offers unparalleled peripheral vision (up to 80° more in the upward direction) and creates a sensation of high-definition vision. Total immersion.
As well as providing generous visibility for all passengers, the panoramic windscreen lets the light flood in and increases the impression of a spacious cabin that is open to the outside world.
The Citroën C3 boasts the biggest windscreen and the smallest roof on the saloon market, offering a unique automotive experience! It combines improved visibility and a brighter interior, for a safer and a more enjoyable ride. Balance through light therapy!
The scented air freshener blends in perfectly with the design of the dashboard and diffuses a subtle fragrance around the cabin.
A knob is used to adjust the intensity of the fragrance or to switch the system off.
