Citroën India has started accepting bookings for Citroen C5 Aircross SUV in the country. The French automaker announced that order books are open for a token sum of Rs 50,000 on the brand’s official website, as well as at La Maison dealerships in India. The first customers to book a Citroën C5 Aircross will receive a free 5-year maintenance package of 50,000 km. However, the offer is valid for reservations made through April 6, 2021, and for delivery through June 30, 2021. The SUV is available in two variants – Feel and Shine.
Citroen has yet to confirm the launch date for the C5 Aircross and pricing is being kept under wraps. However, the SUV will compete in the ₹ 25-30 lakh category against Hyundai Tucson, MG Hector, and Jeep Compass. The Citroën brand is known for creating comfortable cars and this will be the selling point of the C5 Aircross. The model comes with the automaker’s advanced ergonomic suspension with progressive hydraulic pads that provide an extremely flexible ride quality.
The power of the Citroen C5 Aircross comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 175 hp and 400 Nm of maximum torque. This engine is only paired with 8-speed automatic transmission. The model has an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 18.6 kilometers per hour.
Feature-wise, the Citroën C5 is big on safety and it’s decently loaded with the good stuff too. However, it is losing the connected car technology that some of its competitors offer. The 2021 C5 Aircross will be offered in four monochrome colors, including Perla Nera Black, Tijuca Blue, Pearl White, and Cumulus Grey. There are also three dual colors, Tijuca Blue with Pearla Nera Black, Pearl White with Pearla Nera Black, and Cumulus Grey with Pearla Nera Black.
