Citoren was all set to begin its India assault with the C5 Aircross SUV around mid-2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic saw those plans put on hold. Now, the carmaker has announced that the premium midsize SUV will be unveiled on February 1. It will be locally assembled in India at Citroen's Thiruvallur plant in Tamil Nadu.


It boasts a crossover-like silhouette with highlights including a split grille on the front, flanked by DRLs on either side, dual beam headlamps, as well as an upright tailgate with split LED tail lamps. The premium design is further complemented by red accents all over.

A notable cabin highlight is the presence of split AC vents. The European model is also loaded with features like a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, wireless smartphone charging, as well as front seats with heating and massage function. Safety kit consists of multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and front and rear parking sensors. 

Expect the India-spec C5 Aircross to be powered only by a diesel engine. It is likely to be the 2.0-litre option that delivers 177PS/400Nm. It should be paired with an automatic gearbox.


Citroen will likely launch the C5 Aircross SUV in the country by March with prices expected to start from Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom). It will have some stiff competition from the likes of the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace and the Skoda Kodiaq
