Citroen C3 Aircross Automatic Bookings Open, Checkout What's New?

Citroen enthusiasts can look forward to the launch of the highly awaited Citroen C3 Aircross automatic, scheduled for next week. The booking window is currently open, and interested buyers can secure their units by placing a booking with a nominal amount of Rs 25,000. This initial investment is expected to pave the way for an enhanced driving experience.

Pricing Strategy and Competitive Edge:
Sources within the dealership network have shared insights into the pricing strategy for the C3 Aircross automatic. The automatic variant is projected to be priced approximately Rs 1 lakh higher than its manual counterpart. Notably, some dealers indicate that the entry-level pricing could be strategically positioned to be more competitive than rival models in the market, providing an enticing proposition for potential buyers.

Technological Advancements: 
One of the key highlights of the C3 Aircross automatic is the inclusion of a torque convertor gearbox, sourced from the renowned Japanese transmission manufacturer Aisin. This addition is expected to bring about improvements in performance, ensuring a smooth and efficient driving experience. The technological advancements aim to elevate the C3 Aircross to a prominent position within its segment.

Powertrain Consistency and Variant Options:
The heart of the C3 Aircross automatic will continue to beat with the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine that powers its manual counterpart. Insiders suggest that the automatic gearbox option will be available in the top two variants, catering to a discerning audience seeking a blend of performance and convenience. Whether there are any tweaks to the power or torque output remains a point of anticipation.

Market Dynamics and Segment Competition:
The introduction of the automatic gearbox is a strategic move by Citroen to broaden the appeal of the C3 Aircross, which faced limitations in the market due to the absence of an automatic option. As it enters the competitive midsize SUV segment, the C3 Aircross will go head-to-head with formidable rivals, including the refreshed Creta, Seltos, Taigun, Kushaq, Hyryder, and the Grand Vitara. The Indian market is poised for an exciting battle in this segment, and the C3 Aircross is gearing up to make a compelling case for itself.
