Citroen C3 Engine Specifications

In India, the C3 will be powered by a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine, as we previously reported. It will also be available in a lower-spec naturally aspirated version, according to new information. The C3 will produce 110 horsepower when equipped with a turbocharger, and 82 horsepower when equipped with a naturally aspirated engine.

Both engine options will come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission, though the turbo engine may get a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.

The C3’s power figures put it on par with its main competitors in the segment, the Tata Punch (86hp) and the Maruti Suzuki Ignis (83hp), both of which are powered by 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engines. However, it’s worth noting that the C3 will be more powerful than some compact SUVs, such as the Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger, in turbo-petrol form.

Variants and Dimensions of The Citroen C3

In India, the C3 will be available in two trim levels: Live and Feel. The 82hp 1.2-litre petrol engine will be available on both trim levels, while the 110hp 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine will only be available on the Feel variant. Citroen has previously stated that the C3 will offer high levels of customisation, implying that additional exterior and interior packages may be available as optional extras.

The C3 will have a length of 3,981mm, a width of 1,733mm, and a height of 1,586mm. It will have a 2,540mm wheelbase. As a result, it’s bigger than both the Punch and the Ignis. The wheelbase is actually longer than that of compact SUVs like the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, and Kia Sonet. This should result in a large amount of interior space.
