The hatchback could be powered by the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine expected on the upcoming 2021 sub-4m SUV

  • It will go on sale in 2022.

  • Citroën could follow it up with a rugged-looking iteration as well.

  • Both manual and automatic gearboxes expected with the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine.

Citroën entered India with the C5 Aircross in April 2021. We already know its next launch will be a sub-4m SUV, but what about the third offering for our market? According to sources, the carmaker will introduce a hatchback.

It is believed Citroën was contemplating between an SUV and a hatchback before zeroing in on the latter. This is a strong move by the carmaker as it will not only make the brand more accessible but also help in diversification. The hatchback will be underpinned by the carmaker’s C-Cubed platform denoting Comfort, Cool, and Clever.

While its technical specifications are yet unknown, we believe the hatchback could be powered by the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine expected on the upcoming sub-4m SUV. It may come with both manual and automatic transmissions. Citroën is unlikely to offer a diesel version of the hatchback.

We expect a rugged-looking version to succeed the hatchback which is likely to be a premium offering. It should hit the market in 2022, competing with the Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz, Tata Altroz, and Maruti Suzuki Baleno/Toyota Glanza.
