Citroen C3 Aircross SUV Teased Before Its Debut On April 27
Citroen has confirmed that its upcoming made-in-India SUV would be called the C3 Aircross before making its world debut on April 27. This brand-new B-SUV will first go on sale in India before being released as a global product in many other markets.
Citroen has been selling a crossover with the same name in many other regions, including Europe, for a few years, even though the C3 Aircross SUV will be an entirely new model for India and a select few other markets. The second-generation C3 Aircross, which will make its premiere on April 27 in every country, could eventually replace the first-generation model.
The second-generation C3 Aircross will measure about 4.2 metres in length and feature a true SUV style rather than one that resembles a coupe SUV. It is anticipated to contain Citroen C3-like stylistic cues inside and out based on spy photos and the teaser unveiled today, but the C3 Aircross will be a far larger car overall. The grille, wraparound taillights, split headlamp arrangement, and other design components are anticipated to be identical.
The Citroen C3 Aircross SUV will share some switchgear on the inside with the smaller C3, but other than that, we don’t anticipate any further inside similarities. Previous spy pictures have revealed the dashboard, the angle and position of the infotainment screen, the seats, and a number of other features that appear to be exclusive to the C3 Aircross.
There have been rumours that the C3 Aircross may also get a three-row seating arrangement, but it is unclear if it would be an option at launch.
The future C3 Aircross SUV will be built on the CMP modular platform, which already serves as the foundation for a large number of Stellantis cars from manufacturers like Jeep, Fiat, and the made-in-India Citroen C3. Citroen will benefit from increased economies of scale and competitive pricing, especially for the C3 Aircross SUV, which will compete in a sector with practically all Indian automakers.
The 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which will once more be shared with the C3, should also assist the C3 Aircross with competitive pricing. This engine produces 110 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque, making the smaller C3 a fun-to-drive little crossover. However, it should also be adequate for the larger C3 Aircross. What gearbox options this engine will be mated to in the C3 Aircross is another unknown. As we’ve previously mentioned, there will also be an electric powertrain option that will later join the lineup.
The all-new Citroen C3 Aircross SUV, which is anticipated to go on sale later this year, will compete with other midsize SUVs in the class, including the wildly successful Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Volkswagen Taigun, and Skoda Kushaq. The C3 Aircross’ beginning pricing may be comparable to that of the naturally aspirated petrol versions of the Creta and Seltos, the mild hybrid Grand Vitara and Hyryder, and the 1.0 TSI versions of the Kushaq and Taigun. This is because it is anticipated to have slightly less power than its turbo petrol rivals. As the global launch of the C3 Aircross SUV approaches, more information should be made public.
