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.

2018 Citroen Berlingo passenger van unveiled

Vans and people movers have a simple job: to move lots of people or equipment with a minimum of fuss. That means they're often utilitarian boxes-on-wheels, high on practicality but lacking pizazz. Citroen, though, has famously never been a slave to conventional design. Rather than turning out another bland box, the French brand is trying to break the mould when it comes to van design...

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. (You can read Nick's original owner review here) My original review mentioned a few minor issues I won’t rehash but I will talk about the much-maligned transmission...

2007 Citroen C3 Exclusive Review

In the used vehicle market, Australia generally heavily discounts the resale value of many European manufacturers such as Citroen and Peugeot making these exceptionally good value in comparison to Toyota and Hyundai. The C3 is a stylish little commuter with lots of features as standard. The fold down arm rests and high ride height are simple but appreciated considerations...

You feel totally in control. The cockpit is fully loaded with lots of toys which make you feel like you're on final approach and the runway is in sight...

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Exclusive 1.2i Puretech Review
