The Citroen C3 is available in two trim levels: Live and Feel and what it gets in ride quality, it loses in practicality and features. A touchscreen, an audio system, and USB chargers are not included in the base model.

The more expensive Feel variant does not offer central lock/unlock button for the doors but offers a 10.2-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Tata Punch, on the other hand, includes a cooled glovebox and cruise control among other features.
