Citroen C3 Aircross To Make Its Debut On April 27 In India
The world debut of a brand-new SUV from Citroen will take place in India on April 27. The French automaker claims that the Vehicle was totally conceived and engineered in India, however, it has not provided any other information.
As is already known, Citroen will soon unveil the production-spec version of its midsize SUV for the Indian market, which will be based on the C3 hatchback. It is already known to be testing on our roads and is most likely going to be dubbed the Citreon C3 Aircross.
Although previous spy shots of the Citroen C3 Aircross suggested a style like the C3 hatchback, it will really be a considerably bigger car and not just an expanded C3. Although it will retain features like the split headlamp arrangement, grille, and wraparound taillamps, it will have a more upright appearance, a completely redesigned back quarter, and more SUV-centric design characteristics. Sources tell us the new midsize SUV will have two- and three-row seating arrangements and be around 4.2 meters long.
We’ve also had a glance inside the C3 Aircross’s cabin, and while the dashboard here also differs from the C3 in terms of style, other elements, like the steering wheel and some switchgear, are anticipated to remain the same. The forthcoming SUV’s touchscreen will be configured differently from the C3’s widescreen device, and we anticipate additional functions compared to the C3’s pared-down offerings, the most notable of which might be automated temperature control on higher-spec versions. One of the most talked-about features of the C5 Aircross will also be the third row of seats.
The 1.2-liter, three-cylinder, 110hp, 190Nm CMP modular platform will be shared by the C3 Aircross and its hatchback brother. This engine will also be expected to power the C3 Aircross. It would be interesting to watch how this engine works in a car that will be significantly heavier even while it makes the C3 a sporty city commuter. What gearbox choices this engine will be mated to in the C3 Aircross is another unknown.
This next midsize SUV will also feature an electric engine, as we have previously reported. This will be unveiled later when the conventional petrol-powered SUV goes on sale in India.
The Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Volkswagen Taigun, and Skoda Kushaq are just a few of the midsize SUVs that the C3 Aircross will compete against. According to Citroen’s strategy in India, however, it may attempt to undercut the sector by a good margin, which would put it in direct competition with Creta and Seltos naturally aspirated petrol variants, Grand Vitara and Hyryder mild-hybrid versions, and Kushaq and Taigun 1.0 TSI variations.
