The test mules of the Citroen C3 Aircross have already been caught testing multiple times on public roads and is expected to launch later this year or in 2024. It will participate in the highly competitive midsize SUV segment with an overall length of around 4.2 metres and will have a more upmarket cabin compared to the C3. It could be powered by a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine.
Mahindra is looking to introduce in 2024. It will also launch the XUV300 facelift. The XUV300 has received a 5-star safety rating at Global NCAP tests. However, its cabin looks a bit dated and does not offer as many features as that of the rivals. Mahindra will definitely look to address this issue in the 2024 XUV300 facelift.
Force Motors will be extending the Gurkha range with a long-wheelbase five-door version. It’s expected to come with multiple seating options, including a bench or captain’s chairs for the second row and jump seats or captain’s chairs in the third row. Expect the five-door version to share much with its three-door sibling, including its Mercedes-sourced 2.6-litre diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
