car news desk,A new 7 seater car is about to be launched in the Indian market. French automaker Citroën is selling the Citroën C5, Citroën C3 and Citroën eC3 in India. The company is now planning to compete with cars like Creta, Seltos, Grand Vitara, Hyryder and Astor. For this, the company is testing a new car in India, which could be named the Citroen C3 Plus. It will be based on the company’s Citroen C3 and will likely get 7-seater and 5-seater options. Let’s know the complete details of this car
The leaked images suggest that the design will be similar to the C3 hatchback. Although the length of the car has been increased after the C-pillar. The Citroen C3 Plus compact SUV is expected to measure around 4.2-4.3m in length. Earlier in the leaked pictures, this car was seen standing next to the Kia Seltos, on the basis of which the length can be estimated. The vehicle was recently spied testing in Bhojpur, Bihar. On the inside, however, the C3 will be quite different from the hatchback. The steering wheel and other switchgear remain the same as the C3, but the dashboard gets a completely new design. In the middle, instead of quad AC vents, two big AC vents have been given. Its touchscreen infotainment system will also be all new.
Currently, the C3 hatchback misses out on features like climate control, alloy wheels, electrically adjustable ORVMs, dimming IRVMs, reverse parking camera, rear wiper and defogger. These features can be seen in the new compact SUV. Talking about the engine, it is likely to get a 1.2 liter turbo-petrol engine with 110 Bhp and 190 Nm. A 6-speed MT gearbox can be found with it. Hopefully, the Citroen C3 Aircross (or C3 Plus) should get an automatic option. The prices of the Citroen C3 SUV could start from Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 1.5 million. The launch is expected to happen by the end of this year or early next year.
