Citroen C3 Visiodrive commercial – Click above to watch video

A Citroën commercial without robots or an NRJ radio station soundtrack? We might have thought it impossible, but here it is. Promoting the new C3 hatchbach and its zenith windscreen meant to give you all kinds of panoramic views, the kids take this car on a joyride unlike any you're likely to see outside of a Top Gear episode.

Follow the jump for more information on the C3 and to see the swingin' commercial along with a special "making of" video.

14th December 2009
- Citroën's latest TV advertisement - a fun film created for the launch of the new C3 - features the company's latest supermini having a 'swinging' time by the sea.

In the 60-second ad, a young couple sneak new C3 past a security guard and into a dockyard where they connect the car's wheels to the cables of a shipping container crane - and then accelerate up into the air to create a giant swing.

Inside the cabin, the couple experience the extraordinary panoramic view through new C3's unique Zenith windscreen - from a very original perspective.

New C3 is one of Citroën's most fuel and CO2 efficient cars, and is the first production Citroën with a model emitting less than 99g/km of CO2. The sensational panoramic Zenith windscreen, which is 36% bigger than a conventional screen on an average five door small car, delivers an all-new motoring experience for drivers and passengers alike.

The TV advert airs from today - 14th December - and new C3 is 'on sale' from 15th January 2010, with prices starting at just £10,790 ($17,552 U.S.) for the entry-level petrol model, rising to £16,140 ($26,256 U.S.) for the range-topping 1.6HDi 110hp Exclusive.

      Citroen has some history of making interesting commercials to complement their unusual cars. I remember a CX commercial with a giant Grace Jones head that turned out to be a garage... and then a CX Turbo came screaming out of her "mouth" ... with Grace at the wheel.

        that one's one of my absolute favourite commercials! made by jean-paul goude.
        though most of citroen cars have long lost their eccentric part and became way too conventional for my taste, this commercial's cool, too.
        very french, in a good way.
        hope the DS line will bring some interesting and out-of-the-box design back.

      it is a terrible advertiement...I always change the channel when i see it...it is irresponsible dangerous and not fun...I cant see anything other than get reckless written all over it...swinging in a shipyard is hardly anything to do with a car's abilities or personality...pleae change this nauseating ad asap
