French carmaker Citroen, recently announced the introductory prices for the C3 Aircross SUV, which starts at Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV had recently arrived at dealerships across the country, and if you're considering a purchase, here are three unique aspects it brings to the compact SUV segment.

Three Row Seating

If you are amongst the ones who prefer your compact SUV to have an extra row for your kids or pooches,  you should check out the C3 Aircross SUV. It is offered in India with an option for three-row seating. Customers can configure their C3 Aircross as a 5-seater or a 7-seater model to suit their needs.

All other compact SUVs such as Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara are offered only as a 5-seater.

Larger and Flexible Boot

However, the last row can be removed, opening it upto 511 litres. Furthermore, folding the second-row seats allows for upto 839 litres of boot space.
