No aggressive design language. Not even this SUV aims to be a driver’s delight. Instead, the all-new Citroen C5 Aircross focuses on comfort and versatility. This way, one can surely call it a family’s delight. Jokes apart, it is comfortable and packs an ample amount of cabin space. Also, the design of this new offering will take some time for everyone’s eye to get used to. However, there is an interesting bit about this new SUV.

The French carmaker has finally launched it in India. And just to be precise, Citroen C5 Aircross will cost between Rs.29.90 Lakhs and Rs.31.90 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Sadly, this price tag is currently under the introductory price offer. But, it is expected to get altered sooner or later.

  • It comes with a single 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 177HP and 400Nm of torque.

Therefore, both the variants come with different features along with a visible price difference.
