The Tata Curvv is going to be the most unique car in the C-SUV segment. With its coupe credentials, it is expected to add a new breath of life to the segment. However, it is not going to be the only car to come with the coupe-SUV look. Citroen is also working on the C3X, which is also going for the coupe-SUV look. In today’s article, let’s talk about the Citroen C3X.

The Citroen C3X has been spotted testing a few times. From the spy shots, it seems to be getting a front design similar to other Citroen cars. Earlier spy shots had hinted at halogen headlamps, but new reports have stated that the brand has delayed the launch to better kit the car. Hopefully, Citroen will give LED headlamps, alloy wheels, and proper door handles on the C3X. As a whole, the C3X will come with a sloping roofline and high ground clearance, giving it a coupe-SUV look.
Citroen C3X – Interior
The interiors of the Citroen C3X have been spotted in testing a few times. But as stated above, Citroen has delayed the launch to better kit the car. So it is a bit hard to guess how much Citroen improves the interior of the C3X. Hopefully, it adds some features like a push start/stop button, wireless charging, leatherette upholstery, digital instrument cluster, sunroof, etc. These features will help the C3X better take on the Curvv and other rivals in this segment.

The C3X is expected to come with a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine capable of producing 109bhp and 190Nm of torque. Though this engine is decently powerful, Citroen needs to bring more powerful options to compete in this segment. Last month, Citroen finally launched an automatic gearbox on this engine and we can expect that on the C3X too. Along with the automatic, it would also come with a manual gearbox option.
Citroen C3X – Launch and pricing
The C3X was earlier expected to be launched by mid-2024. However, now the project has been delayed by a few months, and we can expect the car by the end of 2024. Another Citroen car we could see in 2024 is the eC3 Aircross. What about the pricing of the C3X? We expect the C3X to start from Rs 10 lakh and go to Rs 16 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
