The new C3 gained a more “parrudinho” design, as if it were a mini-SUV, not hiding the brand’s inspiration in models like the C4 Cactus and Fiat Pulse, two other Stellantis releases in 2021. However, Citroën makes a point of calling it hatch, and this should open up its strategy to fight cars like Chevrolet Onix and Hyundai HB10.

Despite not having revealed technical data, Citroën explained that it thought the new C3 for use in Latin America, known for its huge variation of asphalts. Therefore, the car will be a little taller than the competitors and will have greater angles of attack and departure. The internal space, however, must be identical to that of the older generation, which was very pleasing to single consumers.

Canaltech’s hunch

The new generation of Citroën C3 should benefit from the brotherhood with Fiat in the Stellantis group and absorb some technologies for the car. In addition to the connectivity items, the hatch should be equipped with FireFly line engines, developed by the Italian automaker in Betim/MG. To avoid competition with the Argo, which must receive the 1.0 turbo variants, the French model must have 1.0 and 1.3 aspirated thrusters, which already equip other cars in the group.


Made in Brazil, the new Citroën C3 hits the market South American in the first quarter of 2022. In addition to our market, it will be sold in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. The price must be between R$ 70 thousand and R$ 100 thousand.
