- Citroen’s latest SUV, based on the Citroen C3 hatchback, will be available in both 5-seater and 7-seater configurations and is set to compete with popular C-segment SUVs in India such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Skoda Kushaq.
- The upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross will be powered by a 1.2-liter, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine with a 6-speed manual transmission or a new 6-speed torque converter gearbox, and its unique offering of third-row seating could make it a hit among buyers if Citroen improves the interior quality to be more “Premium.”
Citroen recently announced the global launch of its latest three-row SUV, which is based on the Citroen C3 hatchback. Furthermore, this upcoming SUV is set to be unveiled in India on April 27.
This upcoming Citroen SUV will most likely be called the ‘Citroen C3 Aircross,’ and it will be available in both 5-seater and 7-seater configurations. Furthermore, the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross has been spotted testing several times in India.
Though Citroen has been tight-lipped about the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross’s whereabouts, this upcoming SUV has been completely designed and engineered in India. Furthermore, the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross will compete in India with C-segment SUVs.
In India, the Citroen C3 Aircross will compete with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, and MG Astor.
Though the competition for the upcoming French SUV appears to be tough, the Citroen C3 Aircross comes with a unique offering that none of its competitors currently have. This is the third-row seating option, and we anticipate that it will appeal to a large number of buyers.
However, the availability of third-row seating will not guarantee the success of the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross in India. To attract buyers, Citroen must equip the model well and improve the ‘Premium’ factor of the interior.
Powertrain of Citroen C3 Aircross
Nonetheless, the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross will be powered by the same 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that powers the C3 hatchback. However, we anticipate Citroen reworking the gear ratios to accommodate the 3-row configuration.
The upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross’ gearbox options will most likely include a tried-and-true 6-speed manual transmission and a new 6-speed torque converter gearbox. The latter will be featured in the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross.
We anticipate that the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross will be a critical product for the French automaker in India, as cracking the C-Segment will help Citroen significantly increase its sales in India when compared to other car segments.
