Written by News Team

The Citroen Basalt Vision, a compact SUV Coupe, has been spotted road testing without camouflage, sparking speculation that the launch is imminent. The Basalt Vision is a new addition to Citroen’s lineup and is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2024.

Design and Features

The Citroen Basalt Vision is a compact SUV Coupe that combines the dynamism of a Coupe with the robustness of an SUV. It features a sloping roof-line and raised stance with a notchback silhouette attributing to its coupe nature. The design highlights of the Basalt include a raked rear windscreen, high-mounted stop lamp, wraparound LED taillamps, flip-style door handles, and squared-off wheel arches.

The Basalt Vision is expected to carry most of the equipment from the C3 Aircross with some additional tech. For instance, it will likely be equipped with a large free-standing touchscreen infotainment system, wireless smartphone connectivity, digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, auto-dimming IRVM, and ventilated front seats. To keep up with the competition, we expect the Basalt to be loaded with a 360-degree surround camera, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, six airbags, front parking sensors, ambient lighting, and powered front-row seats.

Basalt Vision SUV Coupe Powertrain

Mechanically, the Citroen Basalt will share its powertrain option with the C3 Aircross. The engine bay will be fitted with a 1.2-litre PURETECH 110 turbocharged petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual and an automatic torque converter unit. This motor is capable of producing 109 bhp and 205 Nm of peak torque.

The Citroen Basalt Vision is expected to strengthen Citroen’s position in major markets such as India and South America. It is part of Citroen’s international growth strategy, which includes a dedicated programme of models developed and produced locally at the heart of their respective markets
