New 2022 Citroen C3 Elle unveiled with bespoke design touches
Citroen has collaborated with Elle magazine to produce a new variant of the C3 hatchback, featuring unique styling details
Citroen has added a new Elle trim level to the C3 line-up, created in partnership with the French fashion magazine. The new model gets two-tone paint, Alcantara upholstery and Elle-inspired details inside and out, with prices starting at £18,150. The C3 Elle is available to order now.
The fundamental design of the C3 remains unchanged, with the same rounded body shape, split headlights and air bumps along the flanks. However, the Elle gets a two-tone paint finish as standard, with a choice of five body colours combined with either a white or black roof.
There are also matte silver blue accents, which highlight elements such as the front fog light surrounds and side air bumps. Elle magazine’s ‘Since 1945 & forever’ slogan has also been applied to the roof, along with a black and white ribbon motif.
The matte silver blue detailing continues inside and the C3 Elle is equipped with Citroen’s Advanced Comfort seats trimmed in light grey fabric and alcantara. They also feature satin blue highlights on the backrests and there’s more Elle branding on the floor mats. An Alcantara dashboard is also unique to the new model.
The C3 Elle’s standard kit list includes 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, tinted windows, a leather steering wheel and a reversing camera. Buyers can choose between two 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines with either 82bhp or 108bhp, the latter fitted with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The 82bhp model costs from £18,150, with the 108bhp variant priced at £20,760. Order books for the C3 Elle are open now, with first deliveries expected in August this year.
