Maybe you have some fond memories of tearing up a backroad somewhere, feeling really good about yourself and your control. Nah. Watch this 2017 Citroën World Rally Championship test car smear shame on your idea of fast.
Northern Irish Citroën Racing World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke just crushed Rally Finland with the fastest ever win there. So, imagine his annoyance when Volkswagen team principal/whiner-in-chief Jost Capito says that Meeke can’t be happy with that win. Dude, what?
Even the kids in Citroën’s press images are cool. This kid posing on a giant donut next to the new C3 airbumps is more rad than any of us could ever hope to be.
Have you ever stared at an ornamental cactus on your desk and thought to yourself, “Sure, I’d drive that?” Stare no longer. Now you can have a little cactus for a car in the form of Citroën’s new Cactus-airbump-clad C3.
Good Morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Who flies better, the helicopter or the Citroën of World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke and codriver Paul Nagle? Meeke flew to his second ever WRC win and Citroën’s 95th WRC win at Rally Portugal, so I’m inclined to pick the car here.
Citroën Racing is busy developing its 2017 World Rally Car in the south of Portugal. The prototype DS 3 WRC is powered by the Citroën C-Elysée WTCC car’s engine, and we want to have a go in it right now.
From 1991 through 1998, the automotive world may have peaked.
Good news: Citroën, the French maker of forbidden fruit for us Americans, has revived the C6 nameplate for a new sedan. Bad news: unlike the last C6, which was weird and magical and smooth as hell to drive, this new car approaches Passat levels of boring.
I, for one, am very excited about Citroën’s planned return to the United States, even if it begins with some kind of ride-sharing service. This country badly needs an injection of French funkiness, the kind Europeans got for years with cars like this Citroën CX.
French automaker PSA Peugeot Citroën today confirmed that they are, in fact, plotting a return to the United States after being gone for decades. But not in the way any of us expected.
In Europe there is a van. It is called the Citroen Jumpy. “Jumpy” is a great name for anything. It’s a great name for a van.
There’s been a gaping hole in the U.S. car market since 1991, a hole that is sorely felt by many enthusiasts but probably barely noticed by most consumers: there are no French cars for sale.

The interior alone on the DS E-Tense took, as the now-distinct luxury brand from Citroën claims, 800 hours to design, test, and produce. I believe it. This thing looks amazing.

Just so we’re clear: if I had stupid expensive weird old car money, I’d buy a Citroën SM.
Sebastien Loeb will return to the World Rally Championship as an owner next year as Autosport reports, running a team in the Junior WRC for 2016. He may have been dumped by Citroën, but that doesn’t he can’t run his own chevron-badged car if he wants to.
Of all the modern Euro hot hatches that are forbidden fruit to us Americans, the Citroën DS3 Racing is my favorite, because orange wheels. Ever driven one?
[When Citroën got Lotus to turn their Visa hatchback into a top-level rally car, did Lotus move the Visa’s front engine to the rear, as was standard for the WRC monsters of the day? No! They just stuck a Visa body on a Lotus Esprit chassis. Read more about this cancelled program at Weird Cars. Photo: Citroën, or maybe…
