Citroen C3 pre-launch bookings open in India

Written by Rohit Tonapi

Citroen recently unveiled its second product for India, the C3. The brand is now started accepting bookings for the crossover. The launch will take place on 20th July 2022. Interested customers can book the Citroen C3 online by using the Citroen website or by visiting their nearest dealership. To pre-book the C3, one needs to pay a token amount of INR 21,000. 

The Citroen C3 has an identity crisis. Essentially it is a sub-compact SUV, but Citroen says it is a “hatchback with a twist”. We instead call it a crossover. Once launched, the C3 will take on the likes of Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger and Tata Punch. 

Citroen C3 – Colours & Variants

Citroen will offer the C3 in a host of colour options. In total, it will have 10 colour options. Out of this, there will be 4 single-tone and 6 dual-tone colour options. The single-tone colour options are – Polar White, Platinum Grey, Zesty Orange and Steel Grey. The dual-tone options are – Polar White / Zesty Orange Roof, Platnium Grey / Zesty Orange Roof, Polar White / Platinum Grey Roof, Steel Grey / Platinum Grey Roof, Steel Grey / Zesty Orange Roof and also Zesty Orange / Platinum Grey Roof. 

There will be two variants on offer – Live and Feel. Furthermore, there will be two engine options available – 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol. The 1.2-litre petrol is available in both Live and Feel variants. However, the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol is only available with the Feel variant.

Citroen C3 – Engine & Gearbox

The C3 will get two powertrain options – PureTech 82 and PureTech 110. The PureTech 82 uses a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder engine. This motor makes 82 PS of power and 115 Nm of torque. On the other hand, the PureTech 110 uses a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. It makes 110 PS and 190 Nm of torque.

As for gearbox options, the PureTech 82 uses a 5-speed manual, and the PureTech 110 uses a 6-speed manual gearbox. Unlike its competition, there will be no automatic gearbox available.
