Citroen C3 Aircross automatic what to expect

With only one powertrain available, the Citroen C3 Aircross has found very little appeal in our market। Although it is quite limited in equipment, an automatic gearbox has rarely been seen in the inventory। Citroen finally will fix one of these aspects। The C3 Aircross, which is equipped with an automatic gearbox, is expected to be released by the end of this month। According to our dealer sources, the prices will be lower than the entry-level automatic variants of competitors.

Citroen’s C3 Aircross, which is equipped with a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox in Indonesia, is being supplied by Aisin, a Japanese transmission manufacturer. This is also expected to be the case in India। Citroen’s European-spec C3 hatchback even uses this Aisin 6-speed AT.

It is also from the same family of gearboxes used in the Skoda Kushaq and Slavia, as well as the Volkswagen Taigun and Virtus’ 1.0-litre TSI engines, and the MG Astor’s 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine। In the midsize SUV segment, the C3 Aircross will fit the bill, as five out of nine models have torque converters। While some models come with DCTs, a CVT is the other most popular AT gearbox in the segment.

In the higher-spec Plus and Max trims, this gearbox will be paired with the 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine। The Indonesian-spec C3 Aircross has 190hp and 205Nm with the AT gearbox, though specifications are still unconfirmed.15Nm। Although it does not have paddle shifters, the gearbox also has a manual mode।

The C3 Aircross has a very strong mechanical package, although the lack of features makes it feel compromised. It has a punchy engine and excellent ride quality, and the new AT gearbox is supposed to fill the big gap in its lineup.

The C3 hatchback is expected to get the same gearbox as the C3 Aircross। For the entry-level market, a torque converter will be costly, whereas AMTs are more popular for their cost effectiveness, but that should make the C3 stand out as a more sophisticated mechanical package। Soon after its release, the upcoming C3X coupe-SUV is expected to be equipped with a 6-speed gearbox। But Citroen is trying to equip it more fully, fixing the shortcomings of its existing models, so its launch is likely to be postponed.
