While they may be on their way back, the United States doesn’t really deserve Citroen. We have sinned too much as a nation for their line of joyous and weird cars. But for a little while, Citroen sold some cars in the United States like the DS but not in huge numbers. The Citroen CX, however was never sold here in…
Citroën BX GTi 16 Soupapes, je t’aime!
The Citroën Twelve, also known as the Citroën Traction Avant, debuted in 1934. It was advertised as being a “car of an entirely new conception,” a claim which, at least this one time, holds up pretty well! See? Not all car company promises are wrong and bad.
PSA Group, the parent company of Citroën, DS Automobiles, Peugeot, Opel, and Vauxhall, wants to come back to the U.S. market with low-volume production models, likely on a similar method as Alfa Romeo’s return to the U.S. They are, however, also considering a ride-sharing model as well. In either case, PSA Group have…
Sometimes form follows function. Sometimes form has nothing to do with function. Sometimes you have to take a hairpin turn in your Citroën 2CV van at speeds that are just barely on the safe side of safe.
In the 1950s and ’60s, two-tone paint schemes were a common sight on everything from family station wagons to muscle cars. According to a report by Automotive News, that trend is on its way back to the mainstream.
When you’re in Europe, you can always pick out the American car nerds because something perfectly ordinary, like a Peugeot 208, can roll by and we’ll absolutely lose our shit over it. Well, maybe we’ll be losing our shit stateside soon!
I’m used to seeing old Citroëns lean way over into turns, but here’s a “2CV Speciale” rally car that gets delightfully sideways instead. It’s a car worthy of many, many giggles at how delightfully silly it is.
We say we like weird cars around here. But how weird are you really willing to live with? If you’re up for living in the strangest form of opulent Franco-Italian luxury there is, consider the Citroën SM. You have no idea how great this thing is.
One of the great things about Maryland Public Television’s Motorweek is that it puts even the least sporty cars through their paces, meaning we get to watch a bunch of shitty Chrysler K Cars try to stop from 55 mph, big AMC SUVs try to make it around a slalom, and old French cars designed in the 1930s try to get from…
Charge the Bastille today in your Citroën CX 25 GTI Turbo! Vive la France!
Sir Roger Moore, the third James Bond, passed away this week at the age of 89. As a lifelong diehard Bond fan, I am extremely sad. Of course the only remedy is to remember him, and who can forget the iconic car chase from For Your Eyes Only?
One of the biggest travesties of the Volkswagen World Rally Championship team shutting down was that it left its very last rally winner, Andreas Mikkelsen, without a ride for 2017. His more experienced teammates Sébastien Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala easily landed on other teams, but Mikkelsen was out of top-level…
There’s no way that your normal car look this cool and composed with one wheel missing. We’re sorry. There’s no way you can look as cool while cruising along as these Citroën DSes with three wheels.
Sometimes I think that rally teams should be the only ones allowed to touch my car. If you want something fixed fast and right, you probably need Kris Meeke’s crew from the Citroën team. Meeke’s car looked like a write-off after a crash, yet it was back up and ready to race in just three hours.
Rally Mexico had one of the most incredible ends to a rally ever, with Citroën World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke winning the rally despite flying off the road for a detour through a spectator parking lot. Now Citröen has remixed the video to offer several funny explanations for that detour.
There’s little more fun that getting your hands on a normal road car, prepping it for a rally and getting to send it—oh shit oh shit oh no this has not gone well.
The Citroën H Van is an automotive design icon. It’s sort of like the equal and opposite reaction to a design like the Lamborghini Miura; where the Miura is a lithe, elegant, obviously beautiful-looking car, the H van is like a corrugated garden shed on wheels. All utility, no style, and, as a result, is somehow full…
