New C3 offers 110mph and £80pa VED

Thu, 20 Jun 2002
Citroen’s new C3 suddenly became a lot more serious with the announcement that stocks are now arriving of its 92bhp 1.4 HDI 16v.

The C3 is the first car to get this new engine, which offers 0-60 in 11.4 seconds, a top speed of 110mph, a combined economy figure of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 112g/km which puts it in the £80 a year VED category for diesels.

Bhp is 92 at 4,000rpm; torque 147 lb ft at 1,750rpm. Prices are a reasonable £330 more than C3s with the 8 valve 70bhp 1.4HDI, which means an SX 1.4HDI 92 will list at £11,295 and an Exclusive 1.4 HDI 92 at £12,295. Insurance groups remain a low 4 for the SX and 5 for the Exclusive.
