    Launched in April last year, the C5 Aircross is Citroen's first model for the Indian market with a second, the new C3, expected to arrive this year. Quirky styling aside, the Citroen C5 Aircross stands out for its focus on comfort - from the well bolstered seats to the ride quality that could be described as one of the best in its segment.

    Power comes from a sole 2.0-litre diesel engine good for 174bhp and 400Nm of torque with our review telling us that the unit is at its best when the C5 is driven along in a unhurried manner. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

    The C5 Aircross is available in two variants - Feel and the fully-loaded Shine with prices ranging between Rs. 32.68 lakh and Rs. 34.24 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
