Made-in-India Citroën C3 receives “2023 World Urban Car” Award

C3 is the first model in a family of three internationally oriented vehicles, developed and produced locally. Its commercial launch is a success, supporting the Citroën brand’s growth in India, in Asia, and consolidating its presence in South America.

Citroën C3 has been awarded the prestigious “2023 WORLD URBAN CAR” prize at the 19th WORLD CAR AWARDS. The announcement came on Wednesday, 5 April, on the side lines of the opening of the New York Auto Show, following a vote by more than 100 international journalists from 32 countries. C3 won a title in the Urban Car category, which is open to all cars under 4.25m that are on sale in at least two major markets (China, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, Latin America, US), and on at least two separate continents.

“We are particularly honoured to receive this “2023 WORLD URBAN CAR” award for C3. In addition to the commercial success of this model, it recognizes the relevance of our growth strategy in India, Asia and South America. As the first model in a family of three cars, the Citroën C3 combines strong, modern styling with a high level of comfort, not to mention the connectivity and technology that customers in these regions expect,” said Thierry Koskas, Citroën’s CEO.

A versatile B-segment hatch, the C3 has been praised for its modernity and its assertive, customisable character. It stands out in its segment thanks to its unique attitude, its high ground clearance, its bonnet that dominates the road and its high driving position. In terms of well-being, nothing has been left to chance: in addition to Citroën’s signature comfort, its interior space is at the very top end of what is available on the market, and its clever design makes everyday life easier – smartphones can be integrated and connected up to an XXL 10″ touch screen. And to make life easier for customers, a new experience, including innovative service offers and a digital online purchase pathway, is being introduced in certain regions.
