well... its both if you ask me... undoubtfully "redressed" 208 but with enough citroen-like detailing that vast majority of people will never notice what was the "base" for it.... after all, I know people (VW fans even) who claimed that 1999 Seat Cordoba and VW Polo Sedan were two completely different cars with marginal visual similarity

Is the first car built on the new EMP1/CMP modular platform intended for the next Peugeot 208 and DS 3, or the (hopefully) final European iteration of the antiquated PF1 platform?

no, it is not the first car built on EMP1/CMP platform, but hopefully, it is the last car built on PF1.... except of C3P that is comming shortly that is.... EMP1 is "late" because of Dongfeng, who entered the EMP1 project in order to build its models on it a couple of years back, so current C3 replacement kind of "turned" int 208 reskin....

Not sure why Citroen went the Cactus route, the plastic cladding looks tacky and out of place for a small hatch. Sure if this was supposed to be a small crossover, then yes I can see this design working but this is meant to be a small standard hatch. Feel citroen should have just kept the DS cars as the main citroen vehicles and turn their standard citroen cars into a lower cost budget brand.

The face is putrid. And the overdone plastic cladding everywhere adds insult to injury.

The black cladding is really unnecessary on it unless it was suppose to be a mini "crossover". It makes it too chunky and look taller and bigger than it really is. Add to that the numerous stylistic touches, it's as if different aspects of the exterior was designed by a separate person in a separate room.

13 pages of presentation photos...

https://www.netcarshow.com/citroen/2017-c3/

I have to say that I still didn't get used to it, not from the outside (a bit too rough and not "happy" enough), nor from inaside ("flat board" design of dash and LCD placed too low for my taste).... but though it has a lot of Cactus like design features it is visible on close up pictures in gallery, that they didn't made it in "cactus-like" productiom mannor... build quality, equipment level and used materials seem to be on much higher level than in Cactus...

and they say that they used two out of three technologies from their "Citroen Advanced Comfort" program (program which purpous is to replace hydractive suspension), the glued&welded chasys with much higher torsion stiffness and new generation of seats, which can -with multiple layers of foam of different stiffness- offer higher level of comfort with sufficient support in areas where support is necessary... the third technology. the new kind of dampers, Will obviously have to wait for the next model...

The pale green car in that set doesn't have the black airbump panels on the doors, that might be the basic model. Is there going to be an automatic gearbox option? Wondering whether that would have the pushbutton gear selector and bench seat like the Cactus.

It looks like I'm in the minority here, but I like it.
