Citroen C5 Aircross is all set to be launched in India soon. The French car maker has also commenced the bookings for the same at a token amount of Rs 50,000. The company has also announced a 5-year or 50,000km complimentary maintenance package for customers who will pre-book the C5 Aircross before April 6th, 2021.

Earlier this year, Citroen inaugurated its first dealership in Ahmedabad. Also French car makers commenced the manufacturing of the C5 Aircross in January this year. The first C5 Aircross rolled off from the Thiruvallur facility in Tamil Nadu on January 28.
The Citroen C5 Aircross is expected to step in the segment along side the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V, Skoda Karoq and the soon expected 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan 5-seater. The pricing is expected to be in between Rs 28-30 lakh ex-showroom as the SUV is heading to the Indian market via CKD route. C5 Aircross will be offered in two trim levels – Feel and Shine.
Powering the C5 Aircross is a 2.0-litre diesel engine that is good enough to churn out 174.3bhp and 400Nm of torque. The gearbox on offer is an eight-speed automatic transmission and the SUV will be available in a Front-wheel-drive layout. There is no word from the manufacturer for the petrol variant yet, however, the plug-in hybrid variant available in the international market could make its way to the Indian soil.
