In the middle of last year the French brand was the third generation of his Citroen C3. Totally renewed, the new C3 aims to call the attention of a public that seeks distinction and, for this, have emulated the recipe of the C4 Cactus. Looking for comfort at all costs, the new Citroen C3 uses, according to versions, the gaudy Airbumps that gave so much to talk about when we saw for the first time the C4 Cactus.
It is by its design and configuration as urban and sympathetic for what the information which we receive qualify them of “bombshell”. According to seems, them high charges, designers and engineers of the brand are studying the possible put in scene of a version “hot”, i.e., a Citroen C3 with aires of GTI whose benefits, without get to be extremely radical, would be much more sports that them of the model of which derives. Surprising, really?
This information has been published by the average Auto Express, who says (according to statements) that this sport variant of the urban French would be comparablein performance to the footballer Ford Fiesta ST. As you will have appreciated, there may be some contradiction in the information, since on the one hand wishing a car comfortable and refined, but at the same time very dynamic behavior, something very difficult to achieve, but impossible? Perhaps the Citroën CX GTi Turbo not fulfilled in both paragraphs?
Our partners have that Carlos Tavares, CEO of the PSA group, he chatted with them during the last Monte Carlo Rally, commenting on them that Citroën was investigating this idea. “There are some plans to improve them mechanical e go a little more far“, declared after be asked about them ambitions of Citroen in the WRC and the influence that could have in the C3.
On the other hand, Xavier Peugeot, head of product plans, would have declared above any VTS C3 or GTI should keep the comfort, refinement and practicality of Citroën, but insisted that these common values of the brand with the sportsmanship can be compatible.
The mixer will bring Citroen and finally develop a sports Citroen C3? Time will tell us.
