Recently, Groupe PSA announced that it will commence its Indian operations with the Citroen brand early next year. Earlier, it was scheduled to enter India in the second half of 2020. Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the company has postponed its plan. The Citroen C5 Aircross SUV will be the first product from the French carmaker in the country. The 5-seater SUV will be brought here via CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route.
While official details of the India-spec Citroen C5 Aircross are yet to be revealed, a media report claims that it will come with diesel-automatic gearbox combination. At the heart of the SUV will be a 2.0L, 4-cylinder diesel motor that’s good enough for 180bhp. Transmission duties will be done by an 8-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox. Earlier, the carmaker was considering smaller capacity 131bhp, 1.5L diesel engine for the Indian market. Though, now it has been dropped.
