The Citroen C3 Shine has been launched in India with 13 new features added. The price of the C3 Shine Top Variant will start from Rs 7.6 lakhs(ex-showroom)
The launch of the brand-new top-of-the-line C3 Shine trim with 13 new features was announced by Citroen India on 13-April 23. Four different versions of the new variant are offered: Shine, Shine Vibe Pack, Shine Dual-tone, and Shine Dual-tone with Vibe Pack.
A single 1.2L 3-cylinder petrol engine is available in naturally aspirated configuration. The naturally aspirated engine generates 80 horsepower and 115 Nm of torque when connected to a 5-speed MT.
2023 Citroen C3 Update
The company has now included some new features such as TPMS, ESP, and HA functions.
TPMS: TPMS gives drivers real-time information on tyre pressure. This guarantees peak performance and even tyre wear, extending the time between replacements.
Safer voyage: Together with ABS, ESP (Electronic Stability Program) prevents slippage, understeer, and oversteer without the need for driver input. This makes the voyage safer.
Hill Assist: When starting the car on an elevation, the hill assist option is a lifesaver. It maintains braking pressure when the driver releases the pedal, allowing forward motion without rolling backwards.
In the past, even the top model of the C3 didn’t come with a fair amount of safety features. Only rear parking sensors, two airbags, ABS, EBD, speed alert, and child-seat anchor points were available from Citroen.
