The upcoming Citroen Basalt is set to make its mark as the latest addition to the C-Cubed program, following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the C3 and C3 Aircross. Designed with emerging markets like India and South America in mind, the C-Cubed program aims to provide efficient and affordable vehicles to expand Citroen's presence in these regions. Not only will the Basalt share its underpinnings with other C-Cubed cars, but it will also boast a shared engine. The SUV coupe is expected to hit the Indian shores in the second half of 2024.

The engine on duty is expected to be a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged engine that puts out 108 bhp of max power at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque output of 205 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm with the 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The torque output falls to 190 Nm at 1,750 rpm with the 6-speed manual gearbox.
