The price range now spans the £15,500 to £21,000 bracket. There's a choice of four trim levels - 'Sense', 'C-Series', 'Saint James' and 'Shine Plus'. Potential buyers will need to make sure that they leave some budget aside for personalisation. This remains the most customisable supermini in its segment, with a vast number of visual spec combinations. This includes vibrant body colours and bi-tone choices (incorporating the roof, door mirrors and the rear quarter panel trim), plus optional coloured inserts around the fog lights and the Airbump panels, as well as graphic trims decorating the roof for a more distinctive pavement presentation.
Equipment levels remain pretty generous. Even base 'Sense' trim gets you Airbump panels, LED headlights, a seven-inch capacitive touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic air conditioning, six airbags, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition, coffee break alert and power folding door mirrors. The 'Saint James' trim level references Citroen's French heritage, taking inspiration from the Saint James clothing brand that was founded in 1889 and celebrating the artisan traditions of north-west France. Standard equipment with this spec includes Advanced Comfort seats, featuring broad cushions and cossetting seat backs. Plus an exclusive 'Saint James' exterior styling pack with logos and a 'Saint James' roof decal, a soft touch dashboard facia and bespoke carpet mats. Other features include a leather-covered steering wheel, reversing camera, dark tinted windows and 16-inch 'Hellix' bi-tone diamond cut alloy wheels.
Plus there are some really clever optional touches. Of these, our favourite is the 'ConnectedCAM Citroen' system. Here, you get a forward-facing two-megapixel, GPS-enabled camera mounted in the rear-view mirror. It's there for two reasons; sensibility and fun. The 'sense' bit lies in its capability to record any traffic incidents or accidents, since it activates in an impact and stores the preceding 30 seconds and following 60 seconds. However, there's a fun purpose too, given that the driver can also click a button to safely take exterior photos or videos of the view through the windscreen and then share this content through social networks.
