The Citroen C3 hatchback attracts considerable discounts of up to Rs 35,000 in August. This model is available in three different variants: Live, Feel, and Shine, and has an introductory cost of Rs 6.16 lakh (ex-showroom). Earlier this year in April, the car manufacturer unveiled their latest creation, the C3 Aircross. This upcoming vehicle will be the fourth release from the corporation and the only one with the option of five or seven seats. In a recent development, the automaker announced that reservations for the new SUV will start in September, and deliveries are expected to begin in October, shortly after its release in the Indian market. But before that, if you're looking to buy the C3 hatchback in India, then it's important to know that discounts on the C3 hatchback in India will be available until the end of August. However, the amount of discount offered may vary based on the dealership, car variant, paint, region, and other factors.

Citroen C3 Latin NCAP Crash Test Performance
It's surprising to note that Citroen's C3 hatchback in the Latin NCAP crash testing received a score of 0 out of 5 stars. The test was conducted specifically for the Latin American automotive markets. The C3 model assessed by Latin NCAP was manufactured in Brazil and had standard safety features like dual front airbags and electronic stability control. The test vehicle also had additional safety features such as ESC, seatbelt reminder, and seatbelt load limiter. The C3 was evaluated on four parameters, which are assessed for all models reviewed by Latin NCAP: adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, safety aids, and pedestrian protection.
Coming to the scores, the C3 obtained 12.21 points in adult occupant safety and 5.93 points in child occupant protection. The occupants' heads were well-protected during the frontal impact, but both the driver and passenger's right knees had mediocre protection. Although the front passenger had adequate overall protection, the chest region did not receive enough shield. Additionally, the bodyshell was deemed unstable and unable to handle additional loads.
