Next Gen 2017 Citroen C3 WRC — It looks like 2017 Citroen C3 WRC is going to make it to the World Rally Championship event coming soon. Taking brands like Volkswagen and Toyota as rivals, their new vehicle spotted tested by Chris Meeke. It looks like the WRC car is almost ready. Here is the information we know so far.
Next Gen 2017 Citroen C3 WRC Specifications
When it comes to the Next Gen Citroen C3 WRC engine, this car is empowered by a turbocharged four-cylinders 1.6-liter engine that can generate up to 380 hp of power output. There is no information on the transmission, but we should suspect manual transmission is used for this kind of support. This car uses all-wheel drive configuration, though, so automatic transmission is also possible to elevate acceleration and speed rate. It is also equipped with center differential to improve traction. This power should be enough if there are no rivals who improve their performance. It is also well equipped so it should be reliable enough.
Features, Exterior and Interior
The exterior part looks pretty compact. The most interesting part of the exterior look is on its reduction on car weight, from 1,200 kg down to 1,175 kg, which is 25 kg lighter than the previous model. It can be a small change, but it should improve speed and power used for the car to take action.
From the look alone, this new model seems wider with more aggressive details here and there. There is no spy photo for the interior, but we should know how it should be. They should add the best safety features to protect drivers and maybe sporty trimming as well.
