Today, Citroen India announced the face-lifted C5 Aircross will go on sale in the domestic market for Rs. 36.67 lakh (ex-showroom). It is sold as a fully loaded Shine variant and has a number of interior and exterior updates compared to the previous model. While the same 2.0-litre diesel mill continues, the features list has been thoroughly upgraded.
In 2022, the Citroen C5 Aircross will compete with vehicles like the recently released new-generation Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass, and VW Tiguan. The first model introduced when the brand made its debut in India last year was the premium SUV, and the facelift has been offered internationally since 2021. There have been four colour schemes made available.

They merge with the bumper to form a continuous pattern with the recognisable double Chevron logo in the centre.
