There are several dashboard displays fitted on the C3 models over the years. Also known as the instrument panel, the dash display is directly in the view of the driver and gives road speed in a large clear way. The instrument display also carries a wealth of useful information to the driver which is outlined below. Its important for the C3 driver to understand the various warnings and information shown on the dashboard display.
