- Hill-hold assist
- Tyre pressure monitoring system
- Idle-engine start/stop
- Similar to the Shine naturally aspirated version, the Shine Turbo also gets 15-inch alloy wheels, electrically adjustable side mirrors, front fog lamps, a rear skid plate, a rear parking camera, a rear defogger and a rear wiper & washer.
- The other notable features of the cross-hatch include a manual AC, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors.
As mentioned above, the Citroen C3 comes with two petrol engine options – 1.2-litre naturally aspirated and 1.2-litre turbocharged. Here’s a look at their specifications: –
|Engine||Puretech 1.2-litre naturally aspirated||Puretech 1.2-litre turbo|

With its impressive performance and dynamics, the Citroen C3 promises a delightful driving experience. The recent upgrades to the C3 Turbo have made it a nearly perfect package, albeit lacking some feel-good features. A revamp of the variant-wise feature structure would also have been a welcome addition.
