The Indian automotive market is experiencing new brands every now and then. The trend started with Kia Motors and MG launching and making the Seltos and the Hector a huge success. More brands like Citroën, Great Wall Motors and more are following in their footsteps. Citroen already has launched the C5 Aircross in India and now they are planning to expand their lineup further with the C3. In today’s featured, we are going to have a look at the top 10 most Googled questions about the Citroen C3.
Is Citroen C3 any good?
Yes, it is. From the markets it is currently present in, we can definitely say the Citroen C3 is a really good car in terms of performance and driveability. It will be available at a price range lower than the C5 of course but you can surely say that it will have really good pricing and seems to be all set to take on the already existing market leaders.
What is the price of Citroen C3 in India?
The Citroen C3 is expected to start below the 10 Lakh mark. However, nothing can be stated with confidence as nothing is official as of now. However, in our opinion, you will be able to source the base variant for under 10 Lakh for sure.
Is Citroen C3 coming to India?
Just after Citroen has launched the C5 and has achieved a considerable sale number, they are now planning to expand their lineup. For the expansion, they are considering launching a more affordable car in the Indian market and that said, nothing can be better than this French subcompact SUV to be considered as the first option.
What is the best Citroen car?
As of now, we have only one Citroen model in the Indian lineup. However, we can expect the C3 and the Berlingo to arrive in the Indian market really soon. We have spotted the Berlingo testing undisguised and the C3 was unveiled through a scale model. Provided the pandemic still persists, we can expect slow results but Citroen will definitely bring in their new range of cars. Once they all are here, we shall decide which one is the best.
What powers the Citroen C3?
Talking about the engine and the transmission, we can expect the C3 to have a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox. We are also expecting the upcoming French car to have a DCT gearbox in the top-end variant(s). Another fact to notice here is that this will not be available with any diesel powertrain.
Which platform is Citroen C3 based on?
The upcoming French subcompact SUV will be based on the Common Modular Platform which already underpins many Peugeot models in the international market and is expected to have a new Jeep sub-4-meter SUV in the future in the Indian market too.
What is the feature lineup on the Citroen C3?
As far as what we can see from the current leaked images, we can assume that the upcoming Citroen C3 will have LED lighting, a connected car tech, ventilated seats, a comfortable cabin, multiple airbags, attractions control, stability control and more. While nothing is official yet, we expect this car to have all the latest tech that its competitors already have on offer.
Does the C3 have a sunroof?
From the scale model shots we have seen till now, we can say that it is carrying a sunroof. Considering the current competition in the market, forget about electric, a panoramic sunroof is a must to have an edge over others! We hope Citroen offers a sunroof here but nothing is official as of now.
Which segment does the C3 belong to?
Considering the dimensions and the shots we have seen till now, we can surely say that this will be a subcompact SUV which is no doubt, the most popular segment is the Indian automotive industry as of now. You have seen how subcompact SUVs have taken over hatchbacks and other cars with time. With a new entrant into the tribe, we definitely expect some great competition.
Who will the Citroen C3 Rival?
The upcoming Citroen C3 will rival the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser and the Ford EcoSport once it arrives in the Indian market.
