The Citroen C3 is equipped with a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine, delivering 110 hp and 190 Nm of peak power and torque. Initially, the car will be available with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the introduction of an automatic variant might occur later. It boasts an impressive ARAI-certified mileage of 18.5 km/l. Underpinning the new model is the same CMP architecture that even supports the C3.
What We Think
Succeeding in the Indian market’s SUV segment is a significant challenge, especially given the dominance of Korean brands like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. Additionally, the Maruti Grand Vitara has attracted many customers since its launch, leaving little space for newcomers. However, Citroen has a potential ace in its hand – the compact yet innovative 3rd-row seating in the C3 Aircross, which could be a game-changer. Moreover, the attractive pricing should really work in favour of new carmaker. The true impact of these attributes should become clear in the months to come.
