The Citroen C3 is catching all the buzz at the moment as it is the latest entrant into the sub-compact SUV segment in the market locking horns with the successful Tata Punch.
Here are 5 reasons why the recently revealed Citroen C3 sub-compact SUV could prove to be better than the already popular Tata Punch. Punch has been ruling the sales charts in the segment ever since its launch. People have really taken a liking to its rugged design, 5-start GNCAP safety rating and modern features. Citroen has decided to challenge the Punch by bringing in the C3, which was originally slated for launch last year. Well, now it is here and here to compete.

5 Reasons Why Citroen C3 Is Better Than Tata Punch
- Customisation options: The C3 comes with 3 customizable packs or 56 customization options to choose from. The buyers have the option of purchasing additional accessories from 70 available options. With such a crazy amount of customisation options, people would be able to make their SUVs look unique and will have to pay for the only things they actually want in their vehicles.

- Turbo Engine: While the Punch comes with a sole 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, the C3 offers the buyers to choose between either a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine with 82 hp/115 Nm or a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine with 110 hp/190 Nm. For people looking for a punchy ride and powerful powertrain, C3 might be better suited.
- Mini C5 Aircross Looks: Irrespective of which angle you look at the C3 from, you can’t not relate it to its bigger and more premium sibling, the C5 Aircross and that is only a good thing. Citroen has the tendency to equip its products with the similar ‘Cube’ theme and that means that the smaller C3 doesn’t actually look too different from the C5 Aircross.

- Exclusivity factor of the brand: Many people are interested in buying products which are not so common. For that exclusivity factor, the C3 certainly qualifies as it is the newest international player to enter our market. The French carmaker is bound to make heads turn for the way it designs its cars which is what might attract a lot of new buyers.
