The Citroen C3 is now on sale in Nepal and the hatchback is priced at quite a premium given the country's tax structure for imports

Citroën India began exports of the C3 hatchback from India earlier this year and the model is now on sale in Nepal with prices starting at a whopping 22.61 lakh (36.25 Nepalese Rupee). With the neighbouring country attracting high taxes on imports, the Citroën C3 is sold at a substantial premium when compared to prices in India. The C3 range is priced from 6.16 lakh (ex-showroom) onwards in India.

The Citroën C3 in Nepal is only offered with the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. The engine develops the same 81 bhp and is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine has been skipped in the market. On the feature front too, the C3 for Nepal remains identical to the Indian market with a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, power windows, manual HVAC unit, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and more.

The Citroen C3Citroën C3 is sold in two variants Live and Feel Vibe Pack with the latter priced at 37.99 Nepalese Rupee (approx. 23.69 lakh). It’s noteworthy to know that the neighbouring market doesn’t get the new range-topping Shine variant that was recently introduced with more features like alloy wheels, a reverse parking camera, electronically adjustable ORVMs and more. We reckon Citroën will begin exports of the Shine variant as well to multiple markets at a later date.

The Citroën C3 is based on the C-Cubed platform that has been specifically designed for emerging markets like India and Nepal, among other SAARC nations. While the company sells the C3 and C5 Aircross for now in Nepal, it’s only a matter of time before models like the E-C3 and the upcoming C3 Aircross will also be exported to the country. The C3 is made at Citroën India’s manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu.
