Limited Availability Creates a Collector’s Item

Gear up for a fast wicket, as only 100 units of the Citroen C3 Aircross Dhoni Edition will be available across India. This limited production run adds a collectible element to the SUV, making it a desirable choice for die-hard Dhoni fans and car enthusiasts seeking a unique driving experience.

Dhoni Touches Enhance the Exterior and Interior

The Citroen C3 Aircross Dhoni Edition retains the base model’s attractive design but receives a series of Dhoni-inspired customizations. The number “7,” synonymous with Dhoni’s jersey number, takes center stage with decals prominently displayed on the hood, tailgate, and rear doors. Additionally, a special “Dhoni Edition” badge adorns the front doors, under the wing mirrors.

Stepping inside the cabin, the special edition boasts a stylish black and beige dual-tone theme for the seat covers. Contrasting blue and orange inserts add a touch of vibrancy, while the number “7” is tastefully embroidered on the driver’s seat. To further personalize the driving experience, Dhoni’s signature is embossed on the front passenger seat.

Citroen hasn’t stopped there. The C3 Aircross Dhoni Edition comes equipped with comfortable cushions, illuminated sill plates featuring Dhoni’s jersey number and signature, and seatbelt covers echoing the same design.

A Touch of Technology and a Special Surprise

Adding a touch of modern convenience, the Citroen C3 Aircross Dhoni Edition includes a front dashcam as standard equipment. This feature provides additional peace of mind while capturing scenic journeys or unexpected events on the road.
