Brazil, Porto Real, 2012. The South American C3 (the second under that name) is launched, hoping for as brilliant a career as its older sister that had such success in Europe. And it happens again!
Closely modelled on the 2009 European model, it distinguishes itself, however, by its specific technical base and its ethanol-compatible FlexFuel engines. It shares the same cargo space and novel dashboard with prominent vents with the C3 Aircross and the C3 Picasso. Its front pioneers the grille bars integrating the chevron pattern, anticipating the 2013 European model, but on the other hand redesigns the lower air intake.
A new change for the American happens in 2016: adoption of the Flex variation for new PureTech petrol engines.
