The C5 Aircross is positioned as a premium 5-seater SUV and its feature list includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and a panoramic sunroof.

  • The Citroen C5 Aircross is more expensive than even the highest variants of the Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson. It doesn’t even offer a 4WD system like those rivals.

  • The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan will likely be its closest rival but it is yet to be launched here. Also, the Volkswagen SUV will be a petrol-only offering unlike the C5 Aircross.

  • Citroen’s prices for the C5 Aircross are similar to the base variants of even bigger, 7-seaters body-on-frame SUVs, like the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.

  • The C5 Aircross does offer some new features like the independent full-size rear seats, each of the three capable of sliding, reclining and folding. 

  • Jeep’s top-spec Compass is renowned for its off-roading capabilities while the enthusiast’s choice, the Trailhawk, is not yet available in its facelifted avatar. It’s well-equipped too with features such as power-adjustable front seats, 360-degree parking camera and dual zone climate control. The S variant listed in the table above also offers features such as dual pane sunroof, LED projector headlamps and its 4x4 system over the base-spec C5 Aircross which costs Rs 1.61 lakh more.

  • The Tucson is a similarly well-equipped offering and also more affordable (by Rs 2.57 lakh) in its top-spec than the entry-level C5 Aircross.
