Citroen hatching plans of entering Indian waters with its products is no secret; the automaker announced plans in Febuary 2019. However a year since that announcement and its first product scheduled to launch here – the C5 Aircross has been spied testing in Goa.
The C5 Aircross is a pretty large SUV that’s more in proportions with the Hyundai Tucson and MG Hector. It comes with butch styling complete with chunky body cladding all around, large alloy wheels and healthy ground clearance. It also receives split headlamp setup with Citroen logo at the centre, air vents with red surrounds in the bumper and the sides and LED combination taillamps
Considering the fact that the interior of the C5 Aircross has not been spied yet, it would be safe to be brief on what the cabin of the model sold abroad has to offer. What’s clear and evident from the test cars spotted is that the car is a 5-seater, though a 7-seater could be expected in the future.
Internationally though the interior of the Aircross comes finished with premium materials for an upmarket feel. There are plenty of double stitching and soft touch materials along with chrome touches for the split A/C vents. A large touchscreen infortainment system takes pride on the dash and also doubles up as a climate control unit as well.
Internationally the C5 Aircross also gets its power from a range of petrol, diesel and hybrid engine options. However which motor will make it to the Indian market is not quite clear. Transmission options once again include a range of choices with 6 and 8-speed automatics on offer.
Details of the C5 Aircross may be sketchy at the moment, but it won’t be for long as Citroen is expected to flash out more information closer to launch. The launch however is expected to be sometime in the middle of 2020 or Q3 2020. Stay tuned.
