    According to us, being a premium SUV, the C5 Aircross lacks a few features like ventilated front seats with memory, wireless phone charger and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. 

    Citroen C5 Aircross Variants - Which One To Buy?

    According to us, the C5 Aircross Shine variant’s additional premium of Rs 2 lakh for its few extra features is slightly on the higher side. However, for its additional premium features you can consider buying it.

    Hence, based on your preference for a sunroof, you can decide whether to buy the Shine or the Feel variant. If you feel that a car in this price range should necessarily come with a sunroof, then definitely Shine is the variant for you. Otherwise, you can consider the pretty loaded entry-level Feel variant to save the extra bucks. 

    What Are The Exterior Colour Options of Citroen C5 Aircross?

    The Citroen C5 Aircross is available for sale in 4 monotone exterior colour options, namely -- Black, White, Grey and Blue. It also comes with dual-tone colour options in the White, Grey and Blue body colours with a black roof. In the Feel variant, to get the dual-tone exterior colour option, you’ll need to spend an additional amount of Rs 50,000.
