Citroen C5 Aircross's prices hiked by nearly Rs. 1 lakh
French automaker Citroen has once again increased the prices of its C5 Aircross SUV in India. The brand has hiked the cost by Rs. 93,900 for the single and dual-tone color options of the Feel trim. The Shine trim's price has been increased by Rs. 98,400. The Feel and Shine models now start at Rs. 32.24 lakh and Rs. 33.78 lakh, respectively.
Why does this story matter?
- Citroen C5 Aircross was launched in India in April last year and had received its first price-revision in November. This time, the French automaker has hiked the cost of the SUV by nearly Rs. 1 lakh.
- However, almost all car manufacturers have announced a price-hike on their vehicles in India. The reason is believed to be rising input costs and a disturbed supply chain.

Citroen C5 Aircross features a sporty look with a muscular bonnet, a two-part grille, and split-style LED headlights. On the sides, the SUV is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, chrome finish around the windows, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The rear-end houses wrap-around LED taillights, a window wiper, roof-mounted spoiler, and twin exhaust tips.
