The Citroen C3 will be launched in March and, close to selling its new compact, the manufacturer is starting to show its variants in Brazil. Readers of QUATRO WHEEL wouldn’t miss it, getting the C3 undisguised as Ton Kneip, from Resende (RJ) did.

To date, there are three versions of the Citroën C3 already registered by the French, which will produce the model in Porto Real (RJ): top of the line First Edition, Feel Pack AT and Feel, with manual transmission. All three will use the expected 1.6 engine, with 118 hp and 15.5 kgfm.
Kneip’s photo shows the middle model, which does not have a roof in a different color than the body, chrome details or decorated side edges. The headlight also appears to have two parabola lights, unlike the LEDs used in the First Edition C3.
Another difference is the version of the fog lights, which will not be offered on the Citroën C3 Live – a possible entry-level version, with the 1.0-liter engine used in the Argo, Mobi and, soon, in the Cronos.
The Citroen C3 is priced between R$60,000 and R$70,000, going up against both versions of the Renault Kwid and offering an affordable alternative to Stellantis compacts, such as Argo and Peugeot 208.
