    They should have brought in Peugeot cars first.. after all they are all under the same group. C5 is a good car but it just doesnt look like the car which can justify such a price tag. Instead the 2021 Peugeot 3008 should have been introduced first..

    Even at 30Lacs, it might clock a monthly sales of 1500/month, which is only what probably citroen is aiming at.. Any sales of 1000+ is good in premium segment

    Still I'd prefer Harrier/Jeep. MG even, way cheaper for the similar features

    2nd row seating arrangement seem to be the biggest flaw in its design...Citroen should have considered a proper 2 seater arrangement for the second row with a central armrest for maximum comfort for the Indian market. To introduce a 30 lakh car for the indian and have utilitarian arrangement of seats at the rear will have few takers.


    I waiting for Mercedes Benz c class 2021 video🔥 make it soon available......

    @autocar india why is that all the safety features are missing which are offered in Europe market they could have brought it at top model with up price for 3 to 5 lakhs. this companies try to make money for feature which are not useful but its only for show but never give safest car like addas features which is most important .


    I don’t like the design at all. Its like that alien Creta.

    I'd rather buy a harrier and save the rest 😀

    Just two things- Wish they had given a panoramic sunroof, I feel in this segment, Indians would think of it as a deal breaker, considering all other rivals gets one. And secondly, lighter shades of interiors would have made it even more appealing.

    The car looks promising, but the only flaw that they have with it is the pricing. If the mentioned price is true then they really should have to reconsider because the C5 Aircross is in the Big SUV territory, if so then this one is not a threat to other Mid-size SUV's (Compass, Hector, Seltos etc) because I honestly believe that people won't shell out such huge money for a car who's rivals cost much less and offers better features.

    Tail light design not attractive. Should be large and diamond cut. Presently Honda city, old creta sx tail light is more attractive .

    I think Citröen's strategy is a good one. Test the waters, gauge reactions and go on the offensive. I believe C5 is a good product but the CBU route may put off some but.they are not targeting high volumes. So it is kind of a win win situation for Citröen.

    28 lakh for a 5 seater... Hmm, so it competes BMW X1... Citroen needs to rethink about the price tag.


    I still like Jeep campass


    Real 5 seater suv 👍

    Pricing will be the problem. Because upto 22L u get top end Kia Seltos. So if they want to really enter into Indian market then they should have rival with Kia Seltos & Hyundai Creta. High end cars upto 30L with 5 seater are rarely purchased

    Citroen is a top class car maker - they are an Iconic brand more than Hyundai, Kia or Toyota.

    Citroen is going to carve a niche market specifically for those who have an understanding on the definition of comfort with power. Welcome to New India 🇮🇳

    I first thought it is of creta and seltos segment but no it is upsegment 😁😁


    If the price is 28-30 lacs then its quite expensive, it should be between 22-24 max as several features are missing such as ventilated seats, 360 camera, fully electric driver seat, electric co-driver seat, wireless charging because other then these features all other features are basic features which are available in 15 lacs car as well... infect more features we get in other smaller cars...

  • Pranav

    Already the market is crowded with combusion engines across all segments, and as brand entering now could concentrated on EV.

      its more about creating the brand image with this product. sales is not the target. more price-competitive cars will follow later with C3 etc. Right now, with the C5, the aim is to make Indians say: Wow, what a brand!

    Can we have any new car without spliting gril, drls & head lamps?. I felt this trend a bit awkward. Unfortunately some companies following this type of design. Its better make it sleek & intigrated like italians does.

  • Ragav Giridharan

    Launch a similar car with 7 seats and sell at this price. Maybe then it can compete with Innova ( provided Citroen takes care of after sales )

    Seems catered to LHD, with the gear level sitting at the far left from the driver.

    I agree it's a tad expensive, but for all those still complaining, take a ride in any car of it's price range and then test drive and try the backseat of Aircross. Then you'll realise it's value. Also it's about the same price as the price in the English or French market! Kudos Citroen!

  • Veda Vinod

    Citroen c5 interior looks similar with Porsche cars

  • Anirvan Kothuri

    We cannot expect a very competitive price because this something that rivals a Mercedes, Audi, bmw, Lexus, for a lower price. So the c3 could be much more economical.

    This car looks promising..The level of comfort, quality and safety features is far better than competition. Hope this car will justify it's 30 lakh price tag...

    A genuine Feedback: Add the below features/suggestions. 1) Add 360 deg camera 2) Add wireless charger 3) Place 2 monitors behind the front seats for back seat entertainment. 4) Have customization option of choosing interior color like the Hector. 5) Also have a 1.5 litre Diesel like the Seltos 6) If C5 Aircross is priced 30 lakhs, I doubt it's success even though if it has good feature list. Price this between 20 to 23 lakhs ex.showroom which will be an apt pricing.
