Renault, Peugeot, Citroën… What are the new cars from French brands in 2023? – Automotive
The diamond brand is releasing a sixth generation of one of its legendary cars: the Espace. This new model, which “will be able to accommodate up to seven passengers in a cabin designed for long journeys”, explains Renault, will be revealed in the spring of 2023. It will cost around 40,000 euros, according to France Info.
Among the other novelties of the year: the very rare Mégane Ultime (less than 2,000 units), the Kangoo E-Tech, two Captur models and the new Scénic, towards the end of the year. The Renault group hopes to revive its sales, after a fourth consecutive year of decline, in 2022, to 5.9%.
The new 408, ranked sixth European car in 2023, is one of the stars of the Peugeot brand this year. The entry-level (PureTech 130 hp) is available from 37,350 euros and the plug-in hybrid version starts at 45,450 euros. 2023 will also be the year of the launch of the third generation of the 3008, “3008 III”, with 100% electric versions. Starting price, probably around 40,000 euros.
Other models will undergo a slight facelift: the Rifter (for a more consistent look with the rest of the brand), the 508 (with a changed front face), the 208 (which will have new fangs) and the 2008 (which will go hybrid).
For 2023, Citroën has chosen to renew several of its models: the C3, the C3 Aircross and to launch a few new models, including the C4 X and the ë-C4 X. These last two models, which were presented to the public on 14 and January 15, “are distinguished by a very high level of comfort and well-being on board”, according to a press release from the Stellantis group. These “alternatives to classic sedans and mid-size SUVs” are available from 27,650 euros.
The Renault group brand, which recorded a 6.8% increase in sales in 2022, launched the Spring in 2021, the first electrified vehicle in the range (directly 100% electric). For 2023, Dacia is launching into the hybrid with its Jogger Hybrid 140, which will be available from 22,000 euros (compared to 17,900 euros for its thermal version). Under the hood, three engines: one atmospheric and two electric. The first models, already available for sale, will arrive in concessions from March, promises Dacia.
