Citroen C3’s price in India will be announced in the first half of 2022. This sub-four metre car will be manufactured here and will take on the likes of Kia Sonet, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, etc.
The new C3 was teased a few days ago but the overall design language had been revealed earlier this year, thanks to a scale model of the SUV. Unlike the Europe-spec C3 that has a curvy silhouette, the India-specific C3 looks sportier, thanks to the raked windscreen and sloping roofline. It gets a split headlamp setup with LED DRLs placed under the bonnet and the main headlight units placed lower on the bumper. The SUV also has the signature Citroen double chevron grille, front skid plates, sloping roofline with roof rails, and wrap-around tail lights with LED signature. 2021 C3 also gets dual-tone alloy wheels, side cladding with Citroen air bump, and a rear skid plate. The new Citroen C3 has 315-litres of boot space.
2021 Citroen C3’s interior is slightly reminiscent of the C5 Aircross’ cabin, especially the air vents. It will come equipped with provisions like a large touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car technology, a digital instrument cluster, a multi-function steering wheel, automatic AC, and more.
The French carmaker hasn’t revealed India-spec C3’s powertrain options but the word on the street is that it will draw power from a 1.2-liter engine. This powerplant, in all likelihood, will be available with a choice between a manual gearbox and automatic transmission.
