Citroen Facelifts The C2

April 7th, 2008

Citroën has given its pocket rocket, the Citroën C2, a mild face lift in Europe with a revised bumper and grille, which will arrive in Australia as part of the 2009 model year changes.


The Citroen C2, which has sold in more than 480,000 units across Europe since its launch in 2003, is renowned for its strong dynamic lines that enhance its performance image and place in the market. The redesigned front focuses on these values with its stronger, more pronounced lines. The design of the new radiator grille – featuring the same redesigned chevrons as at the rear – continues the line of the ribbing on the bonnet giving the vehicle a powerful and distinguished air with a touch of elegance.


In addition, the radiator grille is outlined with a glossy black or chrome-plated strip, giving the C2 a chic, modern look.


The new one-piece bumper is identical for all levels of trim. The attention given to design and integration ensure high levels of perceived quality and an impression of greater strength. The lower part of the bumper gains more generous forms and now features two colour-keyed strips. It is designed to provide enhanced protection and to integrate the fog lamps while conveying the impression of a vehicle that is placed squarely on the road.


The changes made to the front end of the C2 fit perfectly with the staggered body lines and deep-cut side windows, as well as with the clean, dynamic lines of the rear end.


For the European market only the Citroen C2 diesel range will be available with the 110 bhp HDi engine and particulate filter. Allied with a well balanced chassis setting remarkable standards in dynamic behaviour, this powerful but frugal engine consumes just 4.4 l/100 km for CO2 emissions of no more than 119 g/km. As a result, the C2 HDi 110 DPFS carries the Airdream® label that identifies Citroën's most ecological models.
