Citroen C3, a subcompact car made by the brand, which was announced for its India launch way back in September 2021 is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2022, most probably by March-April. New interior shots of the Indian variant of Citroen’s C3 have just been released by the manufacturer. Citroen will offer 78 customization options in the cabin and outside, among which are 8 seat covers and 10 paint schemes with dual-tone finish options.
The India specification model is significantly different from the South Korean version in terms of colour schemes. Citroen C3 will be based on a simplified version of its CMP modular platform and this platform will also be used in Citroen’s future cars for India. With a length of 3.98 meters, the new C3 is just under 4 meters long and with 180mm of ground clearance, it is more than enough for Indian roads.
There is a 315-litre boot, as well as a 1.0-litre glove box. Citroen claims its new C3 has a small footprint and a turning diameter of just 10 metres. The C3 is reportedly the segment leader in the interior. With the new C3, Citroen will offer 78 customization options. Among them are chrome parts, functional equipment for the sound system, up to eight speakers and protective features.
