The upcoming new-era Citroen C3 will make its international debut following month and will get there in the Indian sector early future year
French carmaker Citroen has verified that it would globally unveil the subsequent-generation C3 on 16th September 2021. The debut will be held on the web, through on-line streaming, scheduled for 3:00 PM (Indian Typical Time). Also, this new SUV will make its way to the Indian market place afterwards, likely sometime early future year.
Citroen C3 has been spied many situations during highway assessments on the streets of India, such as equally the outgoing model and the following-technology product. The latter has normally stayed seriously camouflaged, but thanks to leaked photographs, we have a fair clue about the forthcoming SUV’s structure. The upcoming-gen C3 will carry on with the similar quirky design philosophy as the existing model, but with lots of improvements.
The next-gen C3 will have vertically split headlamps at the entrance, which will integrate neatly into the chrome slats of the modern higher front grille. The lessen grille will be bigger, and the entrance bumper will sport foglamps in hexagonal housings at the finishes. At the sides, it will get a set of wonderful twin-tone wheels, and there will be black plastic cladding together the sides in close proximity to the base, with fake vents.
The vehicle will aspect a established of wraparound LED taillights, along with a blacked-out bumper with a fake bash plate. Also, the minimal SUV will get a twin-tone exterior paint position (with a brilliant-colored roof), together with a pair of roof rails. The ORVMs will also characteristic a dual-tone complete, with built-in transform indicators as nicely.
The future new-gen C3 will be based mostly on the modular CMP system. The India-spec model will be developed on a intensely localised version of the CMP architecture, for cost-efficiency. As for the powertrain solutions, we hope it to be obtainable with a couple of petrol and diesel motor choices, along with flex-fuel powerplants as perfectly, in the international markets.
In India, we’d probable get a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol motor, offered with both of those handbook and automatic transmission possibilities. The flex-gasoline powertrain will probably be provided as very well, as the government of India has been urging carmakers to concentration on these types of tech. On launch in our market, the Citroen C3 will go up from the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, etcetera.
