The upgrades make the Citroen C3 more competitive with vehicles like the Tata Punch and the Maruti Ignis.
While the Citroen C3 has shown steady sales growth since its launch in July, it still lags well behind the likes of the Tata Punch and the Maruti Ignis. A high-end 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility is included.
Alloy wheels, an inside rear-view mirror with a dimmer, an outside rear-view mirror with an electronic adjustment, a tachometer, automatic climate control, a rear-view camera, and a rear wiper and defogger are among the amenities that are noticeably absent. These flaws may be preventing C3 from reaching its full commercial potential.
2023 Citroen C3 new top-spec variant
For this reason, Citroen seems to be developing a new high-end C3 model with a number of upgraded features. Some of them might be adapted from C3 standards in Brazil. In addition, Citroen is getting ready to introduce the C3, an all-electric vehicle. In particular, it will compete with the Tata Tiago EV and the soon-to-be-released MG Air EV. CNG fueling could be made available for C3 in the near future.
The new brown colour scheme for the 2023 Citroen C3 has been spotted without any disguise. White, orange, dark grey, and light grey are the current colour possibilities for C3. Dual-tone variants of C3 have employed these same hues. The new brown hue is subdued and appears to be a good fit for the car’s style.
Alloy wheels, a rear parking camera, and a rear wiper washer all make their way onto the new top-spec edition of the C3. The leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable outside mirrors, three-point seatbelts on all seats, and height-adjustable headrests found in the Brazil-spec C3 might also be included. Comfort and security will both go up as a result of these additions.
Halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights, a front skid plate, body-colored front and rear bumpers, steel wheels, and roof rails are standard equipment on all currently available C3 models. Fabric seat upholstery, chrome highlights, Bluetooth, wheel-mounted controls, a 12V outlet up front, USB charging ports, remote keyless entry, and tilt steering are just some of the features found inside a Citroen C3. Dual airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD), rear parking sensors, engine immobiliser, high-speed warning system, and speed-sensitive automatic door lock all come standard.
Citroen C3 engine options
It’s anticipated that engine choices will remain the same as before. There is a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 82 ps and 115 nm of torque. Attached to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The official mileage rating is 19.8 kilometres per liter. A 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline motor generates 110 hp and 190 nm, making it the second available engine. It can be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. A fuel economy of 19.44 km/l is achieved.
In 2019, C3 may gain the option of an automatic transmission. Most likely, the turbocharged gas engine will be an option. With the AT version, fuel economy may experience a slight decrease. The new top-tier C3 model will cost more than the current range, which starts at Rs 5.88 lakh and goes up to Rs 9.15 lakh.
