Speaking of the new launch, Roland Bouchara, CEO & Managing Director, Stellantis India, said, “The India launch of the New Citroën C3 is a very proud moment for all of us at Stellantis. With this launch, Citroën enters the mainstream B-hatch segment in India and we are confident the New C3’s Customised Comfort USP will make it attractive and unique for consumers.”

The turbo version of the same engine kicks out 110 hp and 190 Nm and is linked only with a six-speed MT as no AT is available at least for now.
