The PSA group is reportedly looking to bring a hatchback, compact sedan, and a compact SUV to the Indian market.

The report cites a source saying:

There are three products lined up by PSA Peugeot Citroen comprising a hatchback, a compact sedan and a compact SUV and are codenamed SC1, SC2 and SC3 respectively.  Based on the same platform, these three products are expected to premiere in the Indian market and will eventually be exported to many ASEAN and African countries in the subsequent phase. In all probability, they will be sold under the Peugeot brand for India.

However, Pierre-Olivier Salmon, Head of Corporate Information, Communications Division, of the company refused to divulge any details regarding the company's model lineup.

A report from December 2017 points at the introduction of a Maruti Swift rival from the company by 2020. The small car in question could be the next generation 208 scheduled to break cover in 2018.
