The automatic version is expected to come with a price tag approximately Rs. 1 lakh higher than its manual counterpart. Industry sources suggest that the starting price for the C3 Aircross’s automatic model will be competitive, potentially attracting a broader customer base.

Automatic Gearbox Details and Variants

Equipped with a torque converter gearbox from Japanese manufacturer Aisin, the Citroen C3 Aircross (automatic) features a 6-speed unit identical to its Indonesian model counterpart. Maintaining the 1.2-liter turbo-petrol engine used in the manual variant, it is speculated that the top two trims of the C3 Aircross will offer the automatic transmission option.

Competing with Midsize SUVs in India

The introduction of an automatic gearbox aims to enhance the C3 Aircross’s appeal among buyers seeking an SUV with automated transmission. In the Indian market, the vehicle faces competition from various midsize SUVs, including the Hyundai CRETA, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, SKODA KUSHAQ, and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Stellantis, Citroen’s parent company, plans to invest an additional Rs. 2,000 crore in Citroen India, signaling a commitment to further strengthen its presence in the country.
