Citroen — the French car manufacturer, has already confirmed its entry into the Indian market sometime in 2020. The brand will enter the Indian market with their C5 Aircross SUV offering.
Ahead of Citroen's entry in the country, PSA is also testing out the more premium DS7 Crossback in India as well. The DS 7 Crossback has been spied testing yet again in the country. The exclusive spy pics reveal the car without any camouflage, undergoing testing.
The DS7 Crossback is a more premium offering from PSA, however, it is based on the same platform as the Citroen C5 Aircross. The car has been spotted testing multiple times in the Indian market, although there is no information regarding its launch in India.
PSA Groupe will be entering the Indian market sometime in 2020 with Citroen being the first brand. However, PSA might also be considering introducing the DS brand in the Indian market as well, although, this will happen at a slightly later stage.
The DS7 Crossback is a premium offering, which if introduced in India will take on rivals such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA and the Volvo XC40. The Crossback comes loaded with features and equipment.
The car is already on sale in the European markets and is available in a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrain options. This includes a 1.6-litre petrol engine producing 180bhp and 250Nm of torque and a 2.0-litre diesel churning out 180bhp and 400Nm of torque. Both engines will come mated to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Citroen C5 Aircross once launched in India is expected to be offered with the same engine options as well. Both engines will be compliant with the upcoming BS-VI emission regulations; to be implemented from April 2020.
PSA Groupe is aiming at locally manufacturing its products in the country. The Citroen C5 Aircross has been confirmed to be imported via the CKD route. Hence, it is likely that the DS7 will also follow the same route as well. This will help PSA price the DS7 competitively, if the car does go on sale in the Indian market.
Thoughts On The Citroen DS 7 Crossback
The DS7 Crossback if introduced in India will be positioned in the entry-level premium SUV segment in the market. This will allow it to rival the likes of the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Volvo XC40 and the Audi Q3, while also being priced in the same range as well.
