The Citroen C5 Aircross ended up seventh with a total of 25 unit sales in the month of July 2022. The Fortuner is expected to gain a brand new generation in the coming months. It will more likely make its global debut in Southeast Asia before reaching markets like India sometime next year and it will have an assortment of changes inside and out.
The 2023 Toyota Fortuner will likely sit on an updated ladder frame chassis and it will boast of more advanced features and technologies on the inside too. More importantly, it will reportedly be powered by a turbocharged diesel engine working in tandem with a hybrid system for greater performance and fuel efficiency.
The updated version of the C5 Aircross is also expected to launch in the near future in India. Citroen currently has the C3 and C5 Aircross as its only two offering locally and its portfolio will be expanded courtesy of an all-new electric vehicle next year.
