According to the latest reports, the crossover will be launched someway in the middle of 2022 or June 2022.

The beast part of the Citroen C3 is that it will be developed and produced in India itself. This will bring down the total expenses of the company and make it affordable for the Indian buyers. The crossover will be the second model that is launched in India after C5 Aircross

In India the Citroen C3 will match the likes of Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, Nissan Magnite etc. Given the fact that the crossover is manufactured in India, we expect the car to have a price tag between Rs 8 lakh to Rs 12 lakh when it debuts.
