Default Rumour: Citroen compact SUV coming in 2021

Though Citroen will start its innings in India with the C5 Aircross, but that is considered as a brand building exercise to build up momentum to its future products for India.

Close to the heels of launching the AirCross, Citroen will move to the mass market CUV (< 4m) taking on the leader Maruti Suzuki's Vitara Brezza, with a target launch date in 2021.

This new sub-4m SUV will be a shortened version of the C3 but will be built on a different platform tailored for India and exported to LA Markets too.

With a target price of ~₹ 7 lakhs Citroen has a localization of ~ 90-95% planned.

Engine options include diesel:

Quote:
The Citroen compact SUV will be available with three engine options. There will be a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol in naturally aspirated and turbocharged states, producing approximately 83hp and 110hp, respectively. There will also be a 1.5 diesel – the same DV5 unit that was co-developed by PSA and Ford and used by the latter in its small car line up. The Citroen compact SUV will come with a 6-speed manual gearbox, which again, will be locally manufactured to lower costs. An automatic is expected at some point.

Citroen developing Creta rival for India

The model will be Citroen’s third SUV for India, following the C5 Aircross and a compact SUV(2021).

Quote:
Come 2022, the brand will be ready with its third model for our market. The third model will be a midsize SUV that’s in development as a rival to the Hyundai Creta, the current leader of the segment.

This new SUV will be loosely based on the international C4 Cactus, but like other Citroen products for India, it will be highly localised and built for our market. Expect styling to be quirky like other Citroen's.
