The Citroen C3 Aircross was only launched recently in the Indian market. With its new product, the French automaker aims to go head-to-head with the Hyundai Creta, Skoda Kushaq, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Honda Elevate, and the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, given its positioning between 9.99 lakh and Rs 12.10 lakh (ex-showroom). The bookings for the C3 Aircross commenced earlier this month for a token amount of Rs 25,000, with deliveries commencing on October 15, 2023 – before the holiday season. For enthusiasts in India, the wait seems to have come to an end as the Aircross has started arriving at dealerships. In the brand's India lineup, the new C3 Aircross SUV is the third vehicle designed specifically for the Indian market, after the C3 and the e-C3. In addition to the 3 variants that the model comes in – You, Plus, and Max, there is also a 5+2 seating version called the Flexi Pro (available only for Plus and Max variants). This addition makes it the company's fourth product and the only one available in five- and seven-seater configurations within Citroen India's portfolio.
