The C5 Aircross gets classic French design cues and along with a bunch of desirables like LED headlamps, panoramic sunroof, 18-inch diamond-cut wheels, and the like. The C5 Aircross is well packed in terms of equipment as well. It gets things like auto headlamps, auto wipers, Grained leather/fabric upholstery, hands-free tailgate, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system etc.
Built on the Groupe PSA EMP2 platform, the C5 Aircross is powered by a 2.0L diesel engine capable of putting out 177hp and 400Nm, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. There is, however, no AWD on offer here. The SUV also gets Citroen’s Progressive Hydraulic Cushion suspension setup, providing for unmatched ride quality.
The key rivals of the C5 Aircross in the Indian market are the Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass, VW T Roc, and even the VW Tiguan going by its prices. While the pricing could chop quite a chunk off its fortunes, Citroen plans to sell theC5 Aircross via a number of sources. You could buy them off the La Maison Citroen PHYGITAL dealerships (the manufacturer has 10 such dealerships pan India) or go for a completely online buying experience. Citroen India also confirms to address the aftersales care properly.
