Citroen C3 MPV

The new Citroen supermini-MPV is unveiled! (Look at the previous spy shots.) The Citroen C3 MPV is a vital part of the company’s plans because as well as the Note, it will aim to steal sales from the Honda Jazz and Renault Modus, plus the next-generation Opel Meriva.

The C3 MPV is targeting customers who want space and flexibility in a compact, eco-friendly package, but designers will also tempt them with style.

At the front, the bold nose gets intricate headlamps, neat lower spotlights, large air intakes and a big grille, on which the famous double-chevron badge is mounted. Moving back, the curvy A-pillars are similar to those on the C4 Picasso, but are thinner and have more glass for better side vision.

A production-ready version of the C3 MPV will debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, with sales starting in early 2009. The range is set to be priced from around $20,000.

The new Citroen supermini-MPV was spied in France!

The new Citroen’s MPV, called Monospace, will be based on the same platform as the all-new C3 hatchback. The Monospace takes its styling cues from the C4 Picasso. The front end will feature large headlights, chunky bumpers and the trademark double-chevron grille, while at the rear the screen opens independently of the tailgate. A central instrument binnacle will dominate the dashboard, and expect interiors to feel bright and airy, thanks to the panoramic windscreen and clever use of numerous cabin lights.

Engines are shared with Peugeot’s 207, and the range comprises 1.6-liter normally aspirated and turbocharged petrol units, plus punchy HDi diesels. These are mated to manual, automatic or clutch less SensoDrive transmissions.

The C3 supermini-MPV will debut next year, and take on the Renault Modus, Opel Meriva and Nissan Note when it goes on sale in 2010.
