2019-Citroen-C5-Aircross-India-1.jpg

Groupe PSA was all set to re-enter the Indian market this year with the launch of the Citroen C5 Aircross. However, the manufacturer ended up postponing the SUV’s launch, and it is now expected to make its debut in the country in the first quarter of 2021. Two test mules of the SUV have been spotted testing in Tamil Nadu, revealing some information about the India-spec model.

The test mules that have been spotted testing are likely the India-spec models, since Citroen had recently commenced trial assembly of a few units of the C5 Aircross SUV at CK Birla’s facility in Tamil Nadu. Until now, only the fully-imported version of the SUV were spotted on test in the country. The C5 Aircross will be brought to India through the CKD route.

One test mule of the C5 Aircross is finished in white, while the other one sports a black paint scheme. In terms of overall design, the C5 Aircross features an unorthodox design language. At the front, the car sports a split headlamp along while the rear-end features rectangular-shaped LED tail lamps. The C5 Aircross gets Citroen’s Airbump door and wheel arch protectors, which apart from adding a funky touch to the exterior, protect the lower part of the doors from unwanted knocks.

Looks very bland in my opinion and not very big. Considering the first time introduction in Indian market and the high prices being spoken of, if Citroen has to make even the smallest bit of dent in the sales charts , it should not be priced more than 18-22 L. Otherwise it will be a non starter.
