Citroen C3 spotted undisguised in India: Expected to launch in mid 2022



Citroen C3 SUV is ready to mark its India debut in the mid of this year. Recently, the SUV has been spotted undisguised on the Indian roads. The image shared on Facebook by Sandeep Sreeram reveals the exterior details of the Citroen C3 SUV.
The image shows that the Citroen’s badging is covered under camouflage, else all other exterior details are clearly visible. In terms of exterior, the C3 SUV gets a traditional grille and LED headlamps with LED DRLs. The front bumper is flanked by hexagonal fog lamp casing. At the rear, the SUV gets new tail-lamps and a revised bumper.
The alloy wheels also seem different from the Citroen C5 Aircross SUV. The “Made in India for Indians” C3 SUV as referred to by Citroen is built on the Common Modular Platform. Inside, the Citroen C3 will provide 991mm headroom and 653mm legroom for the rear seats. Dimensionally, the Citroen C3 SUV will likely have a wheelbase of 2,540 mm and a ground clearance of 180 mm.
The SUV is under the production phase in the international market. In Brazil, the 2022 Citroen C3 SUV will be offered in two engine options – a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. The C3 SUV will make use of a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 82 hp@5,750 rpm and 118 Nm@2,750 rpm in Argentina. A five-speed manual transmission will be on offer.
Citroen has yet not shared the mechanical details of the C3 SUV for the Indian market, however, we can expect the C3 SUV to come paired with a seven-speed automatic gearbox for India. The SUV will rival its potential competitor, Tata Punch when launched.
