Citroen has finally entered the Indian market with the C5 Aircross. The premium mid-size SUV has been launched, priced from Rs 29.90 lakh to Rs 31.90 lakh (introductory prices ex-showroom Delhi). Pre-launch bookings had begun last month for a token of Rs 50,000. The SUV is available in two levels of trim, which are as follows: 



Feel Monotone Colour

Rs 29.90 lakh

Feel Dual Tone Colour

Rs 30.40 lakh


Rs 31.90 lakh

The two trims are priced at a difference of Rs 2 lakh. There’s barely anything separating the two, except that the top-spec Shine offers LED headlamps, a panoramic sunroof, and a powered tailgate. Here’s the variant-wise features comparison. 

Features on offer include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, adjustable rear seats (with recline, slide, and folding functions), powered driver’s seat, and cruise control. Passenger safety is taken care of by six airbags, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, fog lights with cornering function, semi-autonomous parking assist, tyre pressure monitoring , ISOFIX, traction control, a rear parking camera, and electronic stability control (ESC). 

Powering the C5 Aircross is a sole 2.0-litre diesel engine generating 177PS and 400Nm. It is paired with an 8-speed torque converter automatic. Claimed fuel economy figure is 18.6 kmpl. We have already driven the C5 Aircross, and here’s our take. 

The SUV will be available in seven colour options, including three dual-tone colours with a blacked out roof: The shades are:

  • Pearl White

  • Pearl White with black roof

  • Cumulus Grey

  • Cumulus Grey with black roof

  • Tijuca Blue

  • Tijuca Blue with black roof

  • Perla Nera Black

Earlier, Citroen had offered a complimentary maintenance package of five years or 50,000 kilometres (whichever would be earlier) on all bookings until April 6. Currently, you get a standard warranty of 3 years or 1 lakh kilometres, whichever would be earlier.
