Citroen India, at its brand launch event today, announced that it will launch its first offering for India, the Citroen C5 Aircross SUV, in September 2020. This will be the first of three cars that the brand launches here, one every year 2020 onwards.
The international market C5 Aircross is rival to cars like the Hyundai Tucson and Volkswagen Tiguan. It gets a range of petrol and diesel motors with the flagship combination being a 2.0 litre 181PS/400Nm diesel mated to an eight speed auto, a setup which sounds most viable for our market. Two petrols and a smaller diesel is also available. Given the high level of localisation the brand is aiming for, we expect prices to undercut that of rivals. Expect the C5 Aircross to be priced below the 30 lakh mark.
The other two cars for India will be the smaller C3 Aircross SUV and a new model that will make its international debut here.
