New Citroen C3 (2023) Price and Specs

Citroen will soon welcome a new C3 hatchback in South Africa to appeal to first-time car buyers! Take a look at what you can expect in terms of specification and pricing! 

A new Citroen C3 hatchback is due to make landfall in South Africa later this month. The new C3 recently scooped the 2023 World Urban Car Award and the newcomer is coming to woo first-time car buyers with its stylish exterior design and smartly executed interior. 

This new C3, which is produced in India, measures 3 980 mm long, 1 7300 mm wide, 1 600 mm high and with a wheelbase of 2 540 mm. Ground clearance for the new C3 is 200 mm with a claimed load capacity of 315 litres. The new Citroen C3 will rival other hatchbacks such as the Suzuki Swift and Volkswagen Polo Vivo.

Clean and quirky might be a good way of describing the exterior design execution and while the C3 is considered to be a hatchback, it does feature some generous plastic cladding and a raised stance to give more rugged and compact SUV-like character. 

According to the information we have received, a single engine option will be offered in South Africa in the form of a 3-cylinder, 1.0-litre petrol engine with 56 kW and 105 Nm of torque and exclusively mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. There is also the possibility of a 60 kW /115 Nm 1.2-litre petrol engine being offered too. As far as we are able to ascertain, an automatic derivative will not be available for the C3.
