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.

Supercars can take a hike; what I really want is a Citroen C4 Cactus

I love the fact that PSA owner Citroen is re-positioning the brand as its entry division while effectively siphoning off the DS line into its own upmarket stream. The results speak for themselves. Bottom line is, Citroen is just plain good at making no-frills cars for the masses that keep enough quirk to stay interesting...
