I purchased my car second-hand a couple of years ago but I'm not sure anymore what are its exact specs, for instance in terms of engine power and stuff. Is there a way to know this easily, maybe some online database or something? The vehicle is a Citroen C3 Desire from 2003 with a 1360cc engine.

If the car has an owner's manual, then you can find the details under technical specifications, which is usually the last section

Model series - Citroen C3[A8] Engine code - KFV Engine designation - TU3JP Capacity - 1,36 L Cylinders - 4 Power - 55 kW/ 75PS

Model series - Citroen C3[A8] 16V Engine code - KFU Engine designation - ET3J4 Capacity - 1,36 L Cylinders - 4 Power - 65 kW/ 88PS

  • Thanks. It does show the engine size, but amazingly it shows engine power nowhere!! I checked and rechecked all ownership and insurance documents I have, it appears nowhere. As if it wasn't worth mentioning. Welcome to Britain...

Next time it may be easy to check it out yourself. There are plenty of free online car databases. I use carspecs360.com which gives you all the desired information.


well,no offense,but people usually do a little research before purchasing a car. you can find the info in your owner's manual which you must have had with the car. if not, try some online car database, like this.


Another way to get info about your car, lacking anything else: You can ask a certified dealer to look up you VIN in their system. You´ll find the VIN in your cars papers, and also on different locations imprinted into the frame, and on the lower right corner on your windscreen.

For more info see here

Your car manufacturer has a detailed database of the cars they sold and their vin´s. It´s also a good Idea to see if those numbers match the documentation upon purchase.
