Yes. This amazing thing is happening. It’s electric, it’s a four-seater cabriolet, and clearly, it’s a proper Citroën that will make the world a better place.
The difference between the first real crossover and most of what followed is that the AMC Eagle was awesome. But so was the Citroën Xantia Break Buffalo 4x4.
This is the Citroën DS 5, their new flagship car that "carries all the genes of the DS brand" and is here "to revive the tradition of French premium vehicles." It's also a four-door hatchback.
In 1984, Pierre Heymann's revolutionary design for a spacious family car was put into production by Matra for Renault, and the minivan was born. Thirty years later, the Espace turns into a crossover.
Peugeot might have won the European Car of the Year award with the 308, but you shouldn't care about such bullshit. Take a look at the new 308 GT instead.
This week we learned PSA Peugeot Citroën has an ambitious plan to return to the U.S. and permanently dethrone Germany and Japan as the manufacturers of America's favorite imports. (Okay, none of that is really true.) What cars should they bring over?
This documentary retraces the history of one of France's most iconic cars. All in French, no subtitles, but if you love French cars vous aussi, pouvez probablement connaître le français
Nobody does weird cars like the French.
A return to the U.S. market is probably the last thing on the minds of Peugeot-Citroen and Renault. There have been no new French cars for sale here in almost 25 years. The companies are still on shaky financial ground. But the cars being pressed with saving them look good, and good enough for Americans.
And one of the most gorgeous too. With 270 horsepower, a six-speed manual and a Torsen differential, this is one French car America would love to have.
Peugeot has an all-new 308 hatchback on the horizon, and it would be decidedly un-French of them not to offer a hotted-up version of said hatchback. Meet the 308R, which gets 266 horsepower out of just 1.6 liters.
It was November 2006: I was post-college unemployed and had just moved to Long Island City. When I wasn't job-searching, I was pretty deep into reading random Wikipedia entries and watching Arrested Development reruns.
Sure, the French have made some cars that are truly crap, but not every French car is all bad. So today, in honor of Bastille Day, why shouldn't we see some examples of Gaullish Greatness?
The Citroen 2CV is not what you'd call a powerhouse. With two cylinders and nine horsepower, it's lucky it can move itself, let alone Jerry Seinfeld and French comedian Gad Elmaleh.
So the Peugeot family is stepping aside for more GM control according to Reuters. This is going to be a clusterfuck. What should we call it?
There's some seriously Grade A French car porn over at Hooniverse today, if you're into that kind of thing. (I know I am.)
Remember Citroën's wonderful Technospace MPV concept from February? Well, after showing it to the public at the Geneva Motor Show last month, the French put an indicator on it and introduced their newest car as the new C4 Picasso. I just love the fact that they haven't cut back the styling at all, so a viva la France…
The French! They're so lazy. They don't want to work, they just want to lay around in their berets eating cheese, drinking wine, making love and losing wars. Not like us hard work-loving Americans. At least, that's the perception that tire company CEO Maurice Taylor has of the French. And he's not afraid to say it.
