The new Citroen C5 Aircross is available in twin trims: Feel and Shine. The difference between the two variants is limited to features such as the panoramic sunroof, LED headlamps and hands- free opening of the rear hatch. Other features including the auto-dimming inside rear-view mirror, and heated wing-mirrors, drive modes, six airbags, ESP and traction control among others will be offered as standard, on both variants.

According to the French company, the SUV tag attached to the name of the Citroën C5 Aircross stands for “Smooth Unique Vehicle” that has been designed to offer comfort in all aspects. The C5 Aircross SUV will be assembled at the Thiruvallur plant near Chennai and the 2.0-litre diesel engine is assembled and supplied from the powertrain plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu.

Two exclusive innovations incorporated in the Citroën C5 Aircross SUV are the suspension with progressive hydraulic cushions and the advanced comfort seats inspired by the world of furniture design. Indigenously developed by Citroën, the progressive hydraulic cushions are claimed to absorb the major and minor bumps along the road, imparting to the passengers a feeling of flying over the road which the company calls “The Flying Carpet Effect”. The acoustics and sound-proofing of the engine compartment and the car cabin as a whole further enhance the comfort, keeping the passengers, “Cocooned in Comfort”.
