To use these as test mules, Citroën began trial assemblies of a few C5 Aircross units last year at the CK Birla facility in Tamil Nadu.

This is expected to have features such as an automatic parking brake, dual-zone air conditioning control, powered tailgate, split LED headlamps with DRL’s, a panoramic sunroof, a powered driver’s seat, 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment, and a 12.3 inch, digital instrument cluster. The C5 Aircross is to be sold in one trimming level.

The C5 Aircross will be shipped as a CKD to India and assembled locally. It is estimated that prices will start at Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom).

The C5 Aircross will be distributed in India by Citroen via its showrooms at La Maison Citroën. In the first step, 10-15 such outlets will be launched.

While the French brand doesn’t anticipate significant numbers of C5 Aircross sales, Citroën is making major bets on potential Indian designs through its C-Cubed program, which it anticipates are the volume sellers of the brand’s products. Increased localization levels may give the models in the range of a highly competitive price point.

The debut offerings from Citroen in India are made using a 2.0-liter 180hp diesel engine and will be paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox torque converter. However, in the mass markets for India, the French car manufacturer would lack diesel engines for its later more affordable versions.
