Citroen C3: Automatic gearbox / Manual operation

  • Selecting position M enables sequential shifting between the six gears.
  • Push backwards to shift up a gear.
  • Push forwards to shift down a gear.

The gearbox only changes gear if the road speed and engine speed permit; apart from this condition, the rules for automatic operation temporarily apply.

D disappears, and the gears engaged appear in succession on the instrument panel.

It is possible to change from position D to position M at any time.
