Citroen would be launching their first product for India, the C5 Aircross SUV in 2020.

Now, the French car manufacturer which is a part of Groupe PSA has revealed that they would introduce cars with leasing option from day 1.

This will allow flexible and easy ownership options for those considering to buy a Citroen car in India.
Citroen has partnered with ALD automotive for leasing solutions.

With this new Citroen Lease program, the brand intends to attract more buyers, all of which would be the first time buyers for the brand in India obviously.

With monthly lease rental plans along with optional maintenance solutions, the Citroen range of cars will try to offer peace of mind to customers, especially to those who might be wary of a new brand entering India.
With leasing, customers get the benefit of no upfront cost of ownership, no financial risks like depriciation, tax management, easy upgrade options along with easy maintenance and insurance solutions.
