Citroen Basalt coupe SUV global debut on March 27

Citroen's highly anticipated coupe-SUV, previously referred to as the C3X, has been officially named Basalt. The French automaker has set the stage for its debut on March 27, 2024.

  • Built on the CMP Platform
  • Expectations for Enhanced Features Compared to Citroen C3 Aircross
  • Anticipated Launch in the Near Future
  • Positioning the Basalt: Citroen's Second C-Segment Offering
The Basalt is poised to surpass the C3 Aircross in Citroen's SUV lineup, offering a sleeker, more distinctive design. Positioned above the C3 Aircross, the Basalt aims to strike a balance between practicality and style, competing directly with upcoming models like the Tata Curvv coupe SUV.

Stylish Design Elements:
Teasers released by Citroen showcase the Basalt's stylish silhouette, featuring a coupe-like roofline merging seamlessly with a short boot lid. The lift-back tailgate design, reminiscent of the Skoda Superb, adds a touch of elegance. The Basalt's tail-lamp design bears resemblance to the Euro-spec C3 hatchback, further enhancing its premium appeal.

Shared Components with C3 Aircross:
While sharing components with the C3 Aircross, including the CMP modular platform and powertrain, the Basalt boasts its unique styling elements. With a similar ground clearance, large alloy wheels, and rugged plastic cladding, the Basalt exudes an adventurous spirit.

Focus on Enhanced Features:
Learning from past models' sales performance, Citroen has prioritized equipping the Basalt with an array of features from its initial launch. Anticipated features include electric-folding wing mirrors, automatic climate control, cruise control, wireless charging, LED headlamps, push-button start, and keyless entry.

Powertrain Specifications:
Powered by a 110hp, 1.2-liter turbo-petrol engine, the Citroen Basalt X offers a dynamic driving experience. Transmission options include manual or torque converter, catering to diverse driving preferences. While an EV variant based on the Basalt is in the pipeline, its launch timeline remains uncertain.

Launch Details:
The Basalt's exterior design will be unveiled on March 27, 2024, with interiors, feature lists, and launch specifics set to follow in the subsequent months. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting addition to Citroen's lineup.
