Citroën was created by Andre Citroën shortly after the end of World War I, in 1919, and launched the Type A that same year. The French brand has since grown to be part of the second largest car manufacturer in Europe - PSA Peugeot-Citroen. Citroën established a reputation as an automotive pioneer with developments such as the first front-wheel-drive steel monocoque production car in 1934, the first to use pneumatic suspension in 1955, with 'Airbumps' and "airbag in roof" technology more recent innovations. The company remains particularly famous for its 2CV and DS models, and the latter was the inspiration for a premium DS line of cars that sits above the brand's C line. Citroën has been in Australia for more than 90 years and offers passenger, luxury and commercial vehicles. Sime Darby Motors took over the distribution rights for Citroën in 2013.

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Review

Have you ever wondered what a car would look like if it was designed by a child? I reckon it would look a whole lot like this, the Citroen C4 Cactus and we've come to New Zealand to have a drive before it's launched in Australia before the end of this year.

2010 Citroen DS3 Dstyle Review

I've just said goodbye to my DS3 and hello to my C4 Cactus so I thought it was time to write a little thank you to it. I loved my DS3. Stylish from tip to toe - the red roof was matched with a red dash, red side mirrors, red alloy wheel inserts and a red key fob. LED daytime lights, Bluetooth audio streaming and a (partially) digital instrument cluster were all standard before many other cars particularly in this class and size...

2012 Citroen DS3 Dsport Review

  Great car after 3 years of having I still look at it and other ds3's on the road and smile it handles great and have seen better than Prius fuel economy on a couple of occasions As a person who used to have a strong dislike for French cars this and the Berlingo I had prior has changed my mind about French built cars, yes they have their faults but these faults become their character The handling is sharp and very predictable and great fun to drive, the ride is firm but still complaint of bumps probably one of the only faults is the lack of top end power but by the time you are worried about that your are starting to get worried about points on your license One of the criticisms of the Citroens lately is the placement of controls such as cruise control and audio as they are tucked away behind the steering wheel, it does take a bit of getting used to the fact that they are tucked away but once you have driven the car for a bit it become intuitive and being behind the wheel gives a cleaner look There is a feeling that you get with driving the ds3 where most new cars feel the same, the ds3 gives you the sense it just wants to be driven, to me other cars are like whitegoods yes they do the job yes they do it well but they have no character My next will be another ds3...
