            Very High pricing

            I haven't bought the car yet. I had a Jeep Compass and C5 Aircross on my mind. I feel the C5 Aircross is priced too high in India. Starting from 35 lakhs on-road and way up to 38 lakhs. People here would go for Endeavour or Fortuner basic model than C5 Aircross. Though the features are more and the brand is French, they must have targeted the Indian consumers with a lower price tag. Compared to C5 Aircross and Jeep it would be better to go with Jeep Compass which has almost the same and even here 4×4 terrain with lesser price compared to C5 Aircross.
