Here are the images of how the upcoming Citroen C3 micro SUV that will go on to rival the likes of Maruti Ignis and Tata Punch
The Citroen C3 has been spotted testing multiple times in India and the micro SUV has entered production in Brazil. The French carmaker has sold its first premium SUV in India, the C5 Aircross quite well. The plan was to bring the mass-market products subsequently but the pandemic shifted the plans back significantly. But it seems that we might be able to witness the micro SUV from Citroen on our roads sometime this year. Let us discuss what to expect from the upcoming Maruti Ignis and Tata Punch rival.

Citroen C3 (Tata Punch Rival)
The C3 will continue to carry the traditional quirky design language of Citroen despite being the entry-level product. This would translate into a unique front fascia with LED DRLs on the bonnet and the main headlamp cluster on the bumper, square theme all across the body including at the front, on the side body claddings, as well as at the rear. The C3 will have a proper SUV-ish stance with a distinct taillamp design. You can’t mistake a Citroen for anything else if you ever happen to glance at one on the road.
Interior and Features
The square theme would most likely continue inside the cabin too. It would be reflected in the dashboard layout, centre console setup, AC vents, steering wheels, digital instrument cluster, etc. Apart from that, the C3 might feature things like connected car tech, connectivity functions, automatic climate control, steering-mounted controls, etc. The C3 will feature high ground clearance as a part of its design. The details of the features of C3 are not available until now. But as the time of the launch nears, we will definitely get to hear about it through spy images or other reports.

Citroen C3 Specs
The Citroen C3 micro SUV is said to be powered by a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine that offers 130 hp of peak power. For transmission, the company might add a 5-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The compact SUV is likely to come with an affordable price tag (somewhere between Rs 8 lakh to Rs 12 lakh, ex-showroom). The direct rivals of the C3 would include Tata Punch, Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger. Additionally, it might also face heat from the established products like the Maruti Ignis and Tata Punch due to the price overlap.
