Citroen C3 Spied: New features and improvements have made the Citroen C3 a viable alternative to the Tata Punch and Maruti Ignis.
The Citroen C3’s sales have been on the rise since its release in July, but they still can’t compete with those of the Tata Punch and Maruti Ignis. The premium entertainment system features a 10″ touchscreen display and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto through wireless USB.
Among the features conspicuously omitted from this vehicle are alloy wheels, an interior rear-view mirror with a dimmer, an exterior rear-view mirror with electronic adjustment, a tachometer, automatic climate control, a rear-view camera, and a rear-window wiper and defogger. It’s possible that C3’s commercial potential is being held back by these issues.

2023 Citroen C3 new top-spec variant
This may explain why Citroen is working on a new version of the C3 that is more luxurious. It’s possible that some of them are based on Brazilian C3 requirements. Further, Citroen will soon release the C3, an all-electric vehicle. It will go head to head with the likes of the Tata Tiago EV and the soon-to-be-released MG Air EV. CNG refuelling stations for C3 may become accessible in the near future.
The new brown 2023 Citroen C3 colour scheme has been spied without any camouflage. C3 can currently come in four different colours: white, orange, dark grey, and light grey. Dual-tone C3 iterations have used these colours. The new brown colour is muted and seems to complement the car’s design.
New for the C3’s top trim level are alloy wheels, a rearview camera, and a washer for the wipers. It is possible that the C3 offered in Brazil will feature a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable outside mirrors, three-point seatbelts for all passengers, and adjustable headrests of varying heights. With these improvements, you may rest easier and feel safer in your home.
All currently available C3s come standard with halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights, a front skid plate, body-color front and rear bumpers, steel wheels, and roof rails. A few of the inside amenities of the Citroen C3 include fabric seat upholstery, chrome accents, Bluetooth, wheel-mounted controls, a 12V outlet in the front, USB charging outlets, remote keyless entry, and tilt steering. Included features include dual airbags, ABS with electronic brake distribution (EBD), rear parking sensors, an engine immobiliser, a high-speed warning system, and a speed-sensitive automatic door lock.
Citroen C3 engine options
It is likely that the available engines will be the same as in the past. A 1.2-liter petrol engine, with natural aspiration, generates 82 ps and 115 nm of torque. connected to a manual transmission with five gears. A combined average of 19.8 kilometres per litre is the certified fuel economy. The second option is a gasoline-powered turbocharged 1.2-liter motor that produces 110 hp and 190 nm. The transmission can be matched with a 6-speed manual. One can expect a fuel efficiency of 19.44 km/l.
An automatic transmission choice could arrive for the C3 in 2019. The turbocharged gas engine is probably going to be an alternative. The AT model could have a somewhat worse fuel economy. With a starting price of Rs 5.88 lakh and a maximum price of Rs 9.15 lakh, the current C3 range is already more expensive than the new top-tier model.
