Citroen

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. Normally a concept car lives and dies at a motor show, but the C4 Cactus looks almost identical to the concept car that was released...

Names can be deliberately suggestive. Out of nowhere the other day – actually not quite, as it was published in the newspaper that day ahead of, say, conflict in Syria – my better half decided to send me a list titled ‘most attractive baby names of 2015’. Topping the list were Alessandro for blokes and Scarlett for girls, as voted by people on a website somewhere (it was that kinda poll)...

2014 Citroen C4 Seduction Review

I bought C4 2014 in Jun-14, and by the 10th month, the hydraulic pump for the steering wheel was formally declared defective and needed replacement.

Meantime, it is NOT covered in the warranty that you get a service car - this is at the dealer's discretion...
