Following on the announcements of the World Car of the Year (the vehicle that was also crowned as World Electric Vehicle and World Car Design of the Year), World Performance Car of the Year and World Luxury Car of the Year, 2023’s World Urban Car of the Year has been announced, with the Citroën C3 claiming top honours in this category at this year’s World Car Awards.

“We are particularly honoured to receive this 2023 World Urban Car award for C3. In addition to the commercial success of this model, it recognises the relevance of our growth strategy in India, Asia and South America. As the first model in a family of three cars, the Citroën C3 combines strong, modern styling with a high level of comfort, not to mention the connectivity and technology that customers in these regions expect,” said Thierry Koskas, Citroën’s CEO.

As a reminder, the finalists in this year’s World Urban Car category were the Citroën C3, Ora Funky Cat and Volkswagen Taigo.
