Citroen not planning to offer the C3-XR outside China

Article by Christian A., on October 21, 2014

Citroen introduced its new C3-XR earlier this month and announced that its new crossover will hit the dealerships in December. Despite the facet that the styling of the C3-XR looks pretty good and we are sure that it will perfectly fit the European market, Citroen says that this model will be available only in China.

According to Citroen CEO Linda Jackson, the new Citroen C3-XR was developed especially for Chinese customers who are looking for plenty of interior space, automatic transmissions as well as larger overall designs.

The French company believes that the C4 Cactus is a better product for the European market and if it will introduce the C3-XR in Europe the subcompact crossover will be a rival for the Peugeot 2008.

For those who don’t know, both the Peugeot 2008 is produced by PSA Peugeot Citroen, same company that produces the C3-XR and the C4 Cactus.

In China, the Citroen X3-XR is powered by 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine that generates 160 hp, bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission that delivers the power to the front wheels.
