    • Feels and looks premium inside and out
    • Most comfortable SUV of the lot
    • Smooth gearbox and powerful diesel engine
    • Gets updated features including a 10-inch touchscreen and wireless phone charging

    Volkswagen Virtus

    • Classy, understated styling. Sporty GT variant on offer too
    • Feature-loaded: 8-inch digital driver’s display, 10.1-inch touchscreen, ventilated seats, electric sunroof are among the highlights
    • 521 litre boot is segment leading. 60:40 split rear seats bumps up practicality
    • Strong engine options: 1- and 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engines promise excitement

    Citroen C5 Aircross

    • No petrol engine or 4x4 option
    • It’s a costly affair
    • Misses segment must-haves like ventilated front seats and a 360-degree camera

    Volkswagen Virtus

    • Lack of width and strong seat contouring means the Virtus is best used as a four seater
    • No diesel engine option. Verna and City offer a diesel

Must read articles before buying Citroen C5 Aircross and Volkswagen Virtus
