São Caetano do Sul / SP – The Citroën C3 1.2 PureTech was offered to test drive during the presentation at the Maua Institute in Grande ABC, where we meet a test bench with 1.2 PureTech on a dynamometer. In the compact, despite the vibration feature of the three-cylinder engine, the propeller showed smooth and linear while driving, responding reasonably well to requests from the accelerator.
With 1110 kg, the C3 1.2 PureTech is merely the impression of weakness in urban traffic, with maximum torque available below 3,000 rpm, thus ensuring smartness on outputs and taken consistent with its proposal. The exchange has a long and precise course, but not too soft. Relations were adequate for the performance offered.
