Citroen C3 special-edition models

Citroen C3 Black and C3 White special editions will be launched on January 1.

The cars replace the outgoing 1.4i VT and come equipped with a host of additional extras as standard, including air-conditioning, 16-inch alloys, and unique white dashboard and door mirrors.

The C3 Black is available in Obsidian Black metallic paint, while the C3 White comes in Polar White. Both variants include body-colour painted door handles and chrome inserts on the lower front bumper.

Both models use the same 1.4-litre petrol engine as the VT model they replace, returning an average of 47.1 mpg and CO2 emissions of 139g/km.

The C3 White is available from 11,990, a saving of 300 on the 1.4i VT model, while the C3 Black starts from 12,430 300 less than the 1.4i VT with optional black metallic paint.

Both cars go on sale on January 1. Citroen says they will be available throughout 2012.
