Citroen C5 Aircross Feel vs Shine: Variants Compared In Detailed Images

The French SUV offering will be available in only two variants. Here's a visual comparison of both the variants.


Citroen is all set to launch its first model for India, the C5 Aircross, around March-end. It’ll be offered in two variants -- Feel and Shine -- powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine with 8-speed automatic transmission. Yes, the C5 Aircross is limited in its variants, but are there any noticeable differences? Let’s find out in detailed images.



At first glance, the front end looks identical on both the trims, featuring a split grille, LED DRLs, and front fog lamps with cornering function. Both come with the option of silver or red accents around the air dams. The difference really lies in the headlights. While the Feel variant sports halogen units, the Shine gets LED multi-reflector lighting.


Heading over to the sides, the similarities continue with the highlight being a set of dual-tone 18-inch alloy wheels. The option of red or silver accents remains at the side airbump, depending on the colour option. 



Both the trims get chrome faux dual exhaust pipes, an integrated spoiler, rear fog lamps, an LED high mount stop lamp, and LED taillamps.  While they look similar, what’s different is how you open the tailgate. In ‘Feel’ you’ll have to do it manually, while in the ‘Shine’ you get a hands-free electric tailgate. Basically, you place your foot under the rear bumper and the tailgate opens automatically. A simple press on a button closes the tailgate as easily. 


Moving over to the upper half of the C5 Aircross, the top-spec Shine gets a panoramic sunroof, but the Feel doesn’t. The sunroof features dual electric motors with auto-reverse safety function and gets blinds to adjust brightness levels.


Color Options


Both trims get four colour options to choose from: Pearl White, Cumulus Grey, Tijuca Blue, and Perla Nera Black. The first three body shades are also offered with a dual-tone roof. 



The cabins feature grained leather/graphite cloth upholstery, split-AC vents, leather steering wheel, and alloy pedals. Feature highlights include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a 6-speaker sound system, phone mirroring, seats with memory foam, and dual-zone automatic climate control. It also gets mood lighting, and three individually adjustable (reclining, sliding and folding) rear seats.

Prices for the Citroen C5 Aircross could start from Rs 28 lakh (ex-showroom). The carmaker is also hoping to open up all the 10 La Maison dealerships before the SUV goes on sale. It will take on the top-end variants of the Jeep Compass and the upcoming Volkswagen Tiguan facelift.
