Citroen has been around for a little over 100 years but it is only now that the French car maker is putting its focus on the Indian market. Underlining that the country is key to its global plans, Citroen on Monday officially showcased the C5 Aircross which will be its debut product here. And with a clear aim to project the comfort levels of the vehicle, the company is making big promises of not just a strong product but a robust sales and post-sales network as well.

To be launched in March, the Citroen C5 Aircross SUV is looking at providing the company with a solid foundation from which subsequent products can be fired in. The vehicle is already available in several foreign markets in Europe, Latin America and in China. Here in India, there is a push towards localization with the engine and axle sourced locally. Company officials in a virtual briefing informed that the localization process will significantly increase in subsequent offerings.
