To begin with, the C3 in Brazil is offered with a 1.0-litre NA petrol engine that makes 71 PS of power, as well as a 1.6-litre unit that produces 120 PS. In India, Citroen offers the C3 with a 1.2-litre NA petrol and 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engines, making 82 PS and 110 PS respectively. The India-spec Citroen C3 is offered with a manual transmission as standard.
However, in Brazil, Citroen is offering the car with an optional 6-speed AT gearbox. We do expect the company to introduce an optional automatic transmission for the C3 in India soon as well, but there is no confirmation yet.
The additional features on offer with the Brazilian C3 over the Indian version include electrically-adjustable ORVMs, a leather wrapped steering wheel,a rear parking camera, rear wiper and defroster, ECO mode for the AT variants, as well as height adjustable headrests and three-point seatbelts for all three seats at the back.
In India, the Citroen C3 is currently priced from Rs 5.71 lakh, going all the way up to Rs 8.06 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom). The hatchback puts up against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Mahindra KUV100 NXT, Tata Punch, while it also gives competition to sub-compact SUVs like Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger.
