Citroen's bubble-shaped C3 used to be a familar sight on UK roads, but we'd be surprised if you've seen more than a couple of the current car - the company's own DS3 has instead stolen the supermini limelight.
It's more popular in continental Europe though, and the Geneva Motor Show next month will mark the debut of the facelifted model.
Much of the metalwork carries on unchanged, but up front a new chrome grille sits where only the Citroen badge did before, with integrated chrome chevrons stretching to the headlightlight units.
The bumper too has changed, perhaps less distinctive than before. The large black mouth has gone, replaced by two more defined grille sections, a body-colour insert and integrated LED running lights.
The tail-light clusters have also changed, and Ink Blue paintwork has found its way onto the options list. The 'Zenith' panoramic windscreen continues, while Citroen says cabin materials have improved over the previous car. New trim materials are available, and the instruments are now backlit in white.
Citroen is using the new C3 to introduce a range of small-capacity, three-cylinder petrol engines. Named 'PureTech', there are 1.0 and 1.2-litre options, producing 68 and 82 PS respectively.
The former just scrapes under the free road tax barrier with 99 g/km of CO2, the latter produces 104 g/km. A 120 PS VTi engine is also available, while the C3 range also offers four diesels of different outputs, ranging from 70 to 115 PS. The cleanest of these puffs out only 87 g/km of CO2.
A 300-litre boot, raised seats, plenty of storage compartments and a newly-available reversing camera should make the C3 as practical as ever.
