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.

Great roads: The Millau Viaduct in France

All too often we are quick to praise the cars we drive, but forget one essential component, the roads we drive on. Be they endless streamers of empty, winding tarmac or even barely recognisable tracks taking you well away from civilisation, roads will occasionally run into their own unique barrier. Nature. This is where human ingenuity and brilliant construction step in...

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Exclusive 1.6 E-HDi review

I've had my Cactus for nearly a year now, it's just had its 15,000km service and I thought now is a good time to offer my longer-term thoughts on this controversial car.
