Citroen C3 to launch in India on July 20, bookings open from July 1
Citroen India has confirmed that its upcoming crossover, the Citroen C3 will be launched in India on July 20, while pre-bookings for the will commence from July 1. The C3 SUV will join the Citroen C5 Aircross SUV in the carmaker's lineup for Indian customers.
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.
