“A versatile little recreational cabriolet.”
The Citroën of a 1000 faces
“A versatile little recreational cabriolet.” The bold project is tempting, and nothing more is needed for Citroën’s teams to adapt the 1999 Pluriel Concept to a C3 base. Built on a simple, curving line, the Citroën C3 Pluriel is revealed in 2003. It lives up to its name (“plural”) by its many configurations. Its side windows: can be lowered, with no frame. Its rear window: can retract into the trunk. Also with removable side arches and a “hobby” lower tailgate, a driver will have fun discovering all the possibilities, as a cabriolet, spider or pick-up.
Its interior changes in 2005. Its exterior updates in 2008. Its life has been punctuated by Limited Editions, such as the Charleston, inspired by the eponymous Citroën 2 HP, to celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2008. The model’s retirement in 2010 was well deserved.
