Citroen is all set to introduce a new B segment car globally on 16 September. According to the reports, this will be the new Citroen C3 sub-compact SUV.
Citreon C3 could be launched next month
After the C5 Aircross SUV hit the Indian markets earlier this year, Citroen may soon introduce a new model in the country and boost the company’s business. The French carmaker is going to launch a sub-compact SUV for the Indian customers in September which will be called the C3. Citroen has confirmed that it will unveil a new B-segment vehicle on September 16. Designed to attract new customers, this new SUV will have a global debut. According to reports, the new C3 sub-compact SUV is the first made-in-India vehicle in the band.
The 2021 Citroen C3 SUV has been spotted testing several times on Indian roads. Earlier this year, its final design was leaked online, revealing some of its features along with pictures of its scale model.
According to the leaked images, the Citroen C3 will feature the French carmaker’s traditional grille at the front, which will be equipped with dual-layer headlamps, flat bonnet and angular windshield like the C5 Aircross. It will also get a nearly flat roof which will slope down towards the rear. Talking about other features, the C3 is likely to come with blacked-out pillars, roof rails and dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels.
Black cladding will also be available on the body panels of the Citroen C3 SUV. The leaked images of the scale model show a contrast orange roof as well as some other orange highlights. The Citroen C3 SUV can also get connected car tech, automatic climate control, cruise control and many other features from the bigger C5 Aircross SUV, including the infotainment system.
The Citroen C3 sub-compact SUV can be mated to a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as well as a DCT-automatic transmission. Citroen is not likely to offer any diesel variants for this SUV. Upon launch, the Citroen C3 SUV will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kruger and Toyota Urban Cruiser currently in the sub-four meter SUV segment.
