May get 6-speed torque converter
The torque-converter automatic is the gearbox that is considered by many to be the most traditional form of auto gearbox, and is arguably the easiest in the widest variety of driving conditions. The 6-speed unit used by Citroen for the Citron C3 will be sourced from Japanese transmission maker Aisin.
The koda Kushak and koda Slavia, Volkswagen Tigan and Volkswagen Vertus use their 1.0-litre TSI petrol engines and the MG Aster 1.3 turbo-petrol engines also use automatic torque converter gearboxes sourced from Aisin.
This gearbox is undoubtedly going to be more expensive than the AMT gearbox, but then parent company Stelantis (formerly Groupe PSA) has used the Aisin 6-speed AT in several Peugeot and Citron models, including the European Citron C3. Let us tell you that at present, the company is selling the Citroen C3 only with a manual gearbox.

Apart from this, it has a 1.2 liter turbo-petrol engine, which provides 110 hp power and 190 Newton meter torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and for this engine the company claims gives a mileage of 19.4 kmpl.
