Upcoming Citroen C3 will be India's first SUV with flex-fuel engine
The Citroen C3 SUV, which is codenamed CC21, is likely to be launched in the Indian market early next year. According to reports, it is going to be the first SUV in India which will have a flex-fuel engine that is compatible with ethanol-based fuel.
French auto giant Citroen is gearing up to introduce its second vehicle in India. After the C5, it is looking at bringing in a smaller model in the sub-compact SUV segment and could be called C3. It is also likely to be the first car with a flex-fuel engine to hit the Indian markets.
Codenamed CC21, the C3 SUV has been spotted several times on Indian road testing in camouflaged form. It is likely to be launch in April next year. However, according to reports, Citroen will officially unveil the C3 SUV next month, on September 16. Production of the C3 SUV is likely to happen simultaneously in the carmaker's India plant in Thiruvallur near Chennai and the Porto Real plant in Brazil.
