Citroen C21 Compact SUV India Launch in Sept to Rival Kiger?
2021 Citroen C21 (C2 Aircross) Compact SUV India Launch in September to Rival Kiger, Magnite?
Citroen recently started its India innings with the C5 Aircross and that is a premium SUV with the likes of the Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson as its rivals. The C5 Aircross has been launched just recently and at the moment, Citroen has dealerships in select locations only. However the next product would be its main volume generating model and for that, the dealer network would be increased considerably. The C5 Aircross is a brand builder and would have limited sales due to its price but the made for India subcompact SUV is what will give Citroen the volumes it needs. That SUV is not sold anywhere else in global markets and is designed plus developed for India. It is a low cost sub compact SUV and would rival the likes of the Hyundai Venue and the Kia Sonet amongst other cars. The reason Citroen developed this SUV for India is because it needs to meet ambitious cost targets and also have high localization.
In order to tackle stiff competition in the sub compact segment, the C21 will have to be feature rich but also have a high local content to meet price expectations. The C21 would be at typical Citroen though and would have aggressive styling much like the C5 Aircross. The interior would also be high quality and spacious for its size. The C21 would only come with petrol engines including a turbo unit. It will have manual and automatic options also. The range would start with a 1.2 litre petrol with a manual and that would be priced aggressively the most. The other engine option would be a 1.2l turbo unit and that might come with a torque converter automatic too.
Citroen will unveil the C21 compact SUV most likely in May/June,2021 with the India launch of this second SUV before the end of this year with the festive season being the expected timeline with a starting price of around Rs 6.5 lakh.
