Citroen C3 could get a top-spec Shine trim with extra features

The Citroen C3 could soon be available in three trims: Live, Feel and a new top-spec Shine variant.

The Citroen C3 competes in the subcompact SUV segment but lacks quite a few features offered by its rivals. The French carmaker realizes this and is rumoured to introduce a new top-spec variant.

According to a media report, the C3 could soon be available in Shine trim. It will sit above the Live and Feel trims, making the latter the new mid-spec variant.

The Shine variant could be equipped with a rear wiper, washer and defogger, alloy wheels, electric folding ORVMs, engine start/stop button and a rearview camera. The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and digital instrument cluster are likely to be carried over unchanged.

Reports suggest that customers opting for the Citroen C3 Shine trim could get the option of a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol that makes 81 BHP and 115 Nm and a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit producing 108 BHP and 190 Nm. Transmission options are also expected to remain unchanged, with the former getting a 5-speed manual, while the latter will be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
