The Citroen C3 launch date in India is scheduled for the first half of 2022, probably before March. This muscular-looking car falls under the sub-4 meters category and maybe priced aggressively for the entry-level market in India.
Should you wait for the Citroen C3 Launch
If you plan to buy a car under Rs. 7-10 Lakh budget and looking for a compact SUV, it may be worth waiting.
Citroen C3 Price in India
Auto Experts believe that the Citroen C3 India price may start from Rs. 5 Lakh onwards (ex-showroom). They are unsure whether this compact SUV will be introduced to India as a budget hatchback or a premium hatchback. If it is a budget hatchback, the above price will hold good.
Most likely a budget hatchback
Many factors make us believe that Citroen C3 will be a budget hatchback. For example, outdated handlebars, no allow wheels, no rear wiper, rear power windows button at the center, and manual side mirror adjustments. These are the signs of cost-cutting.
However, the company has not revealed much information about the Citroen C3 India model except the dimensions. The numbers make us believe that we are looking forward to a premium sub 4 meters SUV hatchback.

Bigger than entry-level cars
For example, lengthwise, the C3 is bigger than Maruti Wagan R, Renault Quid, and Maruti Swift. It is at par with Nissan Magnite and Maruti Baleno. The wheelbase is bigger than Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, and Tata Nexon.
Even though an upgraded version of Citroen C3 hits the Indian road, you can expect it to be priced anywhere between Rs. 5-6 Lakh (ex-showroom)
