Citroën C3 is the first car equipped with the “Stop & Start” system

At the next Paris Motor Show, the Citroën brand will present the ‘Citroën C3 Stop & Start’, the first car to be equipped with a system that cuts the engine when the car is stopped and idling, then instantly restarts it at the touch of the accelerator.

The Stop & Start system is expected to reduce fuel consumption by around 10% for urban driving and by 6% in the standard combined cycle.

In line with the group’s focus on developing “useful technology for everyone”, Stop & Start systems will be gradually offered on other Citroën and Peugeot models.

PSA Peugeot Citroen say the new Stop and Start technology will benefit in the form of better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
