Thoughts About Citroen's Leasing Model

We still have to wait a while till we have any information about available monthly schemes, but having said that, this is a really smart move by Citroen. Zero down payment, zero maintenance, and zero insurance is a massive draw for the Indian consumer who wants more bang for the buck. Right now, we think sales volumes will depend on how Citroen prices the C5 Aircross and other models it plans to launch.
