Citroen has confirmed its new C3 hatchback will cost from £10,995 to £17,095 when vehicles go on sale next month.
Three three-cylinder petrol engines with varying outputs from 68hp to 110hp are offered from launch, as are two diesel powertrains with outputs of 75hp and 100hp.
All versions will emit less than 110g/km of CO2.
Of particular interest to fleets will be models powered by the 75hp 1.5-litre diesel engine. This emits 92g/km of CO2 and returns around 87mpg, placing it in the 18% 2016/17 BIK tax bracket, and costs from £13,200 in entry-level Touch guise.
Three trim levels are offered - Touch, Feel and Flair. As standard, the new C3 in Touch trim is equipped with DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB input, a lane departure warning system, a speed limit recognition tool and adaptive cruise control.
Feel, meanwhile, adds larger 16-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, a seven-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and aircon.
Lastly, Flair models are equipped with leather detailing inside, parking assistance technology, roof-coloured door mirrors, and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Available as an option on top-spec models will be the innovative new ConnectedCam that records videos of journeys from the driver's eye view which can then be uploaded to social media sites at a later date.
In 2015, Citroen was the 10th most popular fleet manufacturer in terms of registrations, with 46,196 cars going to business customers, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
