Made-in-India Citroen C3 export begins to ASEAN and African countries
Citroen said on Friday that its first batch of Made-in-India C3 vehicles had begun exports to global markets. The C3 units were sent from Kamarajar Port in Tamil Nadu for markets in the ASEAN and African countries.
Citroen made its India debut with the C5 Aircross SUV in April 2021. With the debut of the C3 hatchback, the automaker unveiled the eC3 electric version of the vehicle earlier this year.
The Citroen C3 is available in 2 engine options. These 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 are paired with either a 5-speed or a 6-speed manual transmission.
The interiors of the 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 include LED DRLS, digital instrumentation and numerous customisation options.
The Citroen C3 is priced from Rs 5.98 lakh and a top-of-the-line model will cost you Rs 8.10 lakh.
