The launch of the Citroen C5 Aircross is finally upon us. First introduced on Indian soil in 2019, the C5 Aircross was due to launch in the second half of 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the PSA Group, and the company decided to delay the introduction of the Citroën brand until 2021. Fast forward to today, and the C5 Aircross will finally go on sale tonight. Citroen has even taken a new approach and will give buyers the option to complete their purchase online through its direct sales program. Tech2 broke the news about this development in early March.
Reservations for the French SUV have been open for the past few weeks, with the reservation amount set at Rs 50,000. Those who pre-booked the C5 Aircross through April 6 are eligible for free periodic services for up to five years or 50,000 km, whichever comes first.
For the uninitiated, the Citroen C5 Aircross is a 5-seat SUV, which is roughly the same size as a Hyundai Tucson. It measures 4,500mm long, 1,969mm wide and 1,710mm high, with a 2,730mm wheelbase.
The Citroën C5 Aircross has a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine that generates 177 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Citroen claims that the C5 Aircross 18.6 kpl’s ARAI certified fuel efficiency figure is the best in its segment. Along with it is an eight-speed torque converter automatic gearbox with shift paddles. Riding modes and a Grip Control system are also available, to help the C5 traverse rough terrain.
Citroen C5 Aircross prices in India are expected to be in the range of Rs 25-30 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV will be sold at Citroën’s ‘La Maison’ dealerships, with 10 outlets opening initially, as well as online.
