Powertrain in new Citroen C3 Turbo Shine
The C3 1.2 Turbo Feel model, with its powerful 110hp three-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission, was previously the showpiece of the petrol-powered C3 line-up in India. The model, however, was derided for its lack of features, which also applied to the naturally aspirated C3 Feel variation. In our first drive review, we praised the car’s performance and handling but noted the notable absence of numerous crucial amenities.
Citroen India debuted the new top-spec C3 Shine for the less powerful 82hp, 1.2-litre NA engine last month, and now the 1.2-litre turbo petrol-powered C3 receives the same feature enhancements. Electrically adjustable wing mirrors, a rear parking camera, a manually adjustable day/night rear view mirror, and front fog lamps are all included. It also comes standard with 15-inch alloy wheels, a rear wash/wipe, and a rear defogger.
The C3 1.2 Turbo Shine is Rs 1.2 lakh more expensive than the naturally aspirated Shine model, priced at Rs 8.80 lakh. The My Citroen Connect app, which contains roughly 35 connectivity capabilities, is now available for the C3.While Citroen has improved the C3 Shine, the entire C3 petrol lineup still lacks a tachometer, push button start/stop, and auto AC.
Citroen C3 1.2T Shine: Competitors
The Citroen C3 will compete with better variants of the Tata Punch and Maruti Ignis, albeit neither model will have a turbo-petrol engine option. At this price, the C3 1.2 turbo competes with lower-spec compact SUVs like the Renault Kiger and the Nissan Magnite. The Hyundai Exter will be another contender in this area in the coming months.
