Citroen C3 Design Leaked Via Scale Model Images


The final design of the Citroen C3 for the 2021 model year has been leaked via scale model images that have appeared on the internet.

The sub-4-metre SUV, which will be sold in India later this year, looks different from the C3 sold internationally and will make its global debut in the coming months. The 2021 Citroen C3 has an angry “face” up front, due to the placement of its grille and redesigned lighting units.

The front bumper is new and features a larger air intake than before, as well as a new skid plate. The fog lamps, which are housed in hexagonal housings, are held close to the bumper’s rim.

Because of concave surfaces near the front and rear, a smaller glasshouse with rising beltline, flatter door handles, different door cladding, and roof rails, give the 2021 Citroen C3 a sharper look along the edges, rather than a curvy profile.


The rear portion of the C3 scale model now features sharper tail lamps and a new bumper, as well as a white paint scheme with contrasting orange-colored roof and exterior trim parts.

The compact SUV, internally code-named CC21X, has been spotted on test several times recently, and it will feature a big touchscreen and an instrument cluster identical to the C5 Aircross.

Interestingly scale models of the C3 Aircross placed next to the 2021 C3 reveal that the small SUV will get the same revised front fascia as the C3, but with a different skid plate and new alloy wheels. The vehicle’s side and rear profiles remain unchanged.


Citroen is expected to introduce a hatchback variant of the 2021 C3 in India, which will be stripped of the extra body cladding and roof rails. Also the made-in-India compact crossover could be named C3 Sporty. Both versions will be powered by a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine with a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission, and a naturally aspirated version of the engine may be available as well.
