The Citroën C5 Aircross is sold via the CKD route. The SUV is assembled at the manufacturer’s plant at Thiruvallur, Tamil Nadu. The C5 Aircross features a 2.0-litre diesel engine that comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The power figures are respectable at 174.3bhp and 400Nm. The SUV only gets a front-wheel-drive layout for now and the manufacturer has no plans on bringing an all-wheel-drive version anytime soon.
Instead, Citroën will focus on the more affordable space of the car market with the introduction of its C3. The Citroën C3 is a B+ segment crossover-hatchback which will make its India debut in the first quarter of 2022. The C3 will be locally produced with up to 90 per cent parts localisation which is likely to translate to aggressive pricing and affordable ownership costs.
