Pre-orders for the Citroen C3 hatchback were made available by Citroen India earlier this month. The C3 has now started to arrive at various dealerships across India ahead of the launch and pricing announcement, which will take place on July 20.

The Citroen C3's engine options include a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol motor expected to put out 82PS and 118 Nm. Higher variants will get a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol that makes 110PS and 205 Nm.

The engines will be paired with either a 5-speed or a 6-speed manual transmission. At the time of the launch, there won't be an automatic transmission on offer but we expect one to join the lineup later on. Citroen claims that the 1.2-litre normally aspirated engine will return 19.8 kmpl, while the turbocharged engine will return 19.4 kmpl.

The interiors of the upcoming Citroen C3 carries on with the brand's geometric design theme, with the tubular central panel in contrasting colour, a layered shelf below it and the C5 Aircross-inspired split AC vents. The squarish steering wheel with controls is seen here too but the highlight is the 10-inch widescreen touchscreen with Android Auto/Apple Carplay.

Practicality was focused on heavily with touches like the phone mount, numerous cubbies and class-leading elbow, knee and headroom. Boot space is 315l. Other features will be LED DRLS, digital instrumentation and numerous customisation options.

The C3 will compete against the Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite and Tata Punch.
