Stellantis India, the group formed by the merger of the PSA Group and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has announced a price hike of 0.5 per cent across all Citroen models and for select SUVs (Compass, Meridian) sold under the Jeep brand. Effective April 30, 2024, the quantum of the price hike will range from Rs 4,000 to Rs 17,000. Stellantis cited increased input costs and operational expenditures as reasons for the hike. 

In its official statement, Stellantis said, "The modest price adjustment reflects the current economic realities and enables the company to continue delivering innovative vehicles to its valued customers. Stellantis remains committed to delivering high-quality vehicles to its customers while ensuring the sustainability and competitiveness of its operations."

Citroen Lineup in India

Presently, Citroen India's lineup consists of the C3, eC3, C3 Aircross, and C5 Aircross. The C3 Aircross is a relatively new model launched by Citroen in September 2023. At its heart is a 1.2-litre Gen3 turbo-petrol engine mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or an automatic unit. 

Citroen C3 Aircross

For 2024, Citroen has plans to bring in the Basalt SUV-coupe. Based on the C3 Aircross, the Basalt will be Citroen's fourth car under the C-Cubed programme. While we had a clear look at the exterior at the official unveiling in March 2024, the Basalt's interior is yet to be revealed. In terms of mechanicals, expect the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine as the C3 Aircross.

Jeep Lineup in India

Meanwhile, Jeep retails the Compass, Meridian, Grand Cherokee, and Wrangler in the country. Upon its arrival in India, the updated Wrangler will join the Jeep lineup. Unveiled globally about a year ago, the Jeep Wrangler facelift will arrive on our market with a refreshed design and additional features. It will be Jeep's second most expensive product, priced below the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
