Citroen C3 Aircross spotted testing: Creta’s rival’s expected launch date, engine, specs, features

Citroen India recently unveiled the Citroen C3 electric to the Indian market. Named ëC3, it will be the first electric vehicle and third model from the company in India. After the launch of the EV, the company is expected to launch C3 Aircross to the Indian market. When launched, the C3 will be the fourth product from French carmaker in India after C5 Aircross, C3 and eC3.
The C3 Aircross was recently spied testing on Indian roads and now the company has been spotted testing the car on international soil. Since the car was extensively covered it’s hard to tell its design cues but C3 Aircross is larger than the C3 hatchback. The car will be built on the same CMP platform which underpins the C3 hatchback. The C3 Aircross is expected to measure over 4.2 meters in length and could get a 5 and 7-seater layout.

The car is also expected to get a newly designed bumper with re-designed headlamps and tail lamps. The car will also get higher ground clearance with 16-inch alloy wheels.
Moving on to the interior, the C3 hatchback is expected to get the same dashboard layout as the C3 hatch. However, the car might get more features with different upholstery.
