Citroen will host the global debut of an all-new midsize SUV on April 27 and it will be based on the C3 compact hatchback.

The Citroen C3 Aircross will reportedly be sold in both five- and seven-seater layouts but initially, the possibilities of only the five-seater being made available are high. It will be equipped with a 1.2L turbo petrol engine with manual and automatic transmission options. It will be more market than the regular C3 inside and out and the features list will be more advanced.

2. Kia Seltos Facelift:
