French carmaker Citroen is all set to play in the major league in the Indian auto market. While the C5 Aircross, the brand’s first offering in India, was more of a brand builder, the C3 is a premium hatchback and specially designed for the Indian market. Citroen says the C-Cubed architecture-based model will get over 90 per cent local content and prices will be extremely competitive. It also benefits from SUV styling which further improves its chances of doing some healthy volumes. But Citroen is all about giving a host of options to customers and the C3 will come with four customisation packs that buyers can opt for. What are these packs and what do they have to offer? Let’s take a look.
The Convenience Pack adds some essential accessories including mud flaps, a trunk mat and floor carpet mats. The C3 also gets a leather steering wheel cover, rear windshield blind and window sun blinds. There are neck pillows, seat cushions and even a seatbelt cushion as well.
The Citroen C3 with the Vibe Pack gets some important features and cosmetic enhancements too. This includes fog lamps, orange fog lamp surrounds, side moulding and orange surround on the rear bumper reflector.
If you opt for the Elegance Pack on the Citroen C3, it will come with chrome trims on the front and rear bumpers and side moulding. There’s also a premium touch with the chrome door handles, chrome window beltline and more chrome on the taillights.
If you are feeling a bit more energetic, let the Citroen C3 Energy Pack reflect the same with the front and rear skid plates, a roof spoiler, door visors on the windows and wheel arch cladding.

That said, pricing will be crucial on the Citroen C3 and with so many features available as accessories, we do expect a low starting price with a host of add-on options.
