Shangrila Motors, the authorized distributor of Citroen vehicles in Nepal, has introduced its second SUV for the Nepali market.

It comes just as Citroen C3 won the prestigious World Urban Car Award 2023, making it the first-ever vehicle produced in India to win this award.

Citroen C3 is an affordable SUV offering without losing out on its unique styling. However, the feature list does take a considerable dip to keep things affordable.

We will talk about those sacrifices in a bit.

With the entire auto market going towards premium SUVs and EVs, Citroen is trying to do something different at a much more aggressive price point.

In its way, the Citroen C3 will be a stylish SUV that people can afford.

Citroen C3 Overview


Citroen C3 brings in a unique design.

Like the C5 Aircross, the front section sports the signature Dual Chrome Chevron. It helps to extend the grille with chrome extensions further.

It also gets LED DLRs with a Split Halogen Headlamp.

In contrast to the front design, the side profile is simplistic. It does not get any chrome treatment.

Nevertheless, there are a few orange accents that help the SUV feel funky.

Moreover, the wheel arches are strong, combining fluid lines for a confident stance.

Citroen hasn’t defined it as an SUV but rather calls it a hatchback with a twist.

Similarly, the rear profile is also simplistic. It gets a LED Tail Lamp with a Chromed Emblem.

The exterior styling looks great. However, the cost-cutting is more apparent on the inside.

In fairness, Citroen has tried its best to include a welcoming ambiance.

It is stylish, spacious, and comfortable. However, it lacks any kind of interesting feature set.

Nevertheless, it is justifiable for the segment.

Citroen C3 is powered by a 1.2L Petrol engine. It generates a max power of 82PS at 5750rpm and a max torque of 115Nm at 3750rpm.

Moreover, it is mated to a 5-Speed MT transmission with a 30-liter fuel tank capacity.

It boasts mileage figures of 19 km/l.

Citroen C3 came in two engine configurations. Unfortunately, the Turbo engine variants were discontinued recently.

Hence, the Nepali market will only get a 1.2-liter Naturally Aspirated Petrol Engine.

Despite the lack of features, C3 should shine through in other factors like engine and styling.

It will be interesting to see how it will perform in the Nepali market.

Additional Details

MacPherson Strut and Twist Beam handle the suspension duties.

The dimensions are 3981mm long, 1733mm wide, and 1586mm tall. Moreover, the wheelbase is 2540mm.
