We are comparing Renault Kiger with Citroen C3 in terms of looks, features, comfort, driving dynamics, and performance. Which is a better value-for-money package? Let’s take a look at their specifications.
Citroen C3 has two engine options. The first will be a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit that will be capable of generating 82 PS of power. On the other hand, there is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol unit that is capable of generating 110 PS of maximum power. And it is capable of generating 190 Nm of peak torque.
According to the company, this car is capable of running at a speed of 100 kmph in just 10 seconds. The engines of this SUV will be available with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed manual gearbox. Citroen claims that the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated unit will deliver a mileage of 19.8 kmpl while the turbocharged unit will give a mileage of 19.4 kmpl.
Inside, the Citroen C3 will feature a dual-tone interior, while the black dashboard will be complemented by a large orange-coloured insert. Feature-wise, the model will get a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument console, a flat-bottom steering wheel with steering-mounted controls, and silver accents on the dashboard.
The Kiger can be had in either of the two petrol engine options – 1.0-litre NA and 1.0-litre turbo. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 70bhp and 96Nm of torque at 3,500rpm. This engine is available in a five-speed manual and a five-speed AMT option.
On the other hand, the 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine produces 97bhp and 160Nm at 3,200rpm. The turbo engine is available in a five-speed manual and a five-speed CVT option. The top-spec variant also offers different driving modes – Normal, Eco, and Sports.
Most of the styling elements have been carried forward from the predecessor. However, for freshness, the vehicle now offers a new red fade dashboard accent and quilted embossed seat upholstery with red stitches. Moreover, depending on the variant, the Kiger now also offers cruise control and a wireless smartphone charger. Other feature highlights include an eight-inch touchscreen floating display and a seven-inch multi-skin reconfigurable TFT colour instrument cluster. Its features list consists of wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and auto climate control.
