    Spotted testing a few times, Citroen is planning to launch a seven-seater version of the C3 soon. The 7-seater SUV can be called the C3 Sport Tourer, C3 Aircross or the C3 Plus. The SUV will offer bigger 16-inch wheels, a rugged appearance, and higher ground clearance. Once launched, the vehicle will lock horns with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Kia Carens and the XL6. Expected to offer the same 1.2-litre turbo petrol mated to a six-speed gearbox, chances are that the new 7-seater C3 can also offer a 1.2-litre NA engine. All of this will be offered for a price of 12 to 15 Lakhs.
