We tell you all about Citroen C3 in this quick review.
Citroen is bringing the C3 into the compact SUV segment, rivaling the Nissan Magnite, the Renault Kiger, & the Tata Punch. The C3 will only be offered with a 1.2L petrol engine with both, turbocharged & naturally aspirated configurations.
The C3 will only be offered with a 1.2L petrol engine with both, turbocharged & naturally aspirated configurations. The engine will be paired with a 5-Speed manual & automatic gearbox. The turbocharged engine might get the Dual-Clutch transmission, however, there’s no confirmation from the brand on this, as of now. The naturally aspirated engine produces 82 HP & 115 Nm of torque, whereas, the turbocharged engine produces 110 HP & 190 Nm of torque.
The engine specification makes the Citroen C3 the most powerful vehicle in its segment, as until now the most powerful vehicles were the Kiger & the Magnite.
In terms of dimensions, the C3 has to offer the longest wheelbase not only in the segment, but it even beats the Kia Sonet & Hyundai Venue. All the other aspects of dimensions are also at par with the Kiger & the Magnite.
In terms of features, the Citroen C3 will host a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, steering mounted controls, and steering tilt adjustment.
Citroen is all set to reveal the C3 & its pricing, next month in July. Considering the segment, it would not be a shock to witness aggressive pricing from Citroen, to divert the sales and acquire a chunk of the market share, right from its launch.
