Formed by Andre Citroen in 1919, it’s fair to say that Citroen has created some of the world’s most iconic and innovative cars of all time. The brilliance of the pre-war Traction Avant, functional ruggedness of the 2CV and the futuristic DS were all stand-out models, but with these cars followed the financial difficulties of the late 1960s and early 1970s. 
 
With the need to develop several new models, while investing in rotary engine technology that would ultimately never see the light of day, Citroen had serious money issues and was forced to give up its independence in 1976, with Peugeot taking a controlling stake in the company. 
 
Although Peugeot has kept a tight control of the company’s finances, Citroen has still managed to produce a number of successful and clever models – retaining the successful Hydropneumatic suspension system right up to the current C5. Latest models like the Cactus prove that Citroen is still innovating, while the more luxurious side has been left to DS, a new sister brand spun off the success of the classic Citroen DS model line. 
 

Buying a classic Citroen

 
Citroen really made an impression on the motoring world with the Traction Avant, which was launched in 1934. Here was a car that featured unitary construction, independent suspension and front-wheel drive. Although the Traction was highly respected, it was the DS of 1955 that genuinely blew the world away.
 
Complete with its streamlined shape, the Citroen DS brought in something new: the company’s famous self-levelling Hydropneumatic suspension system. Front-wheel drive, four-wheel disc brakes and many other extremely advanced technical achievements mark it out as one of the most groundbreaking cars of the 20th century. Despite this, prices are still actually relatively affordable – excluding the super-expensive convertible Decapotable versions. 
 
Making the most of its partnership with Maserati, Citroen’s SM attempted to marry the DS’s advanced underpinnings with a glorious V6 engine and beautiful two-door coupe body. Was it a success? You’ll have to be the judge, as this machine is adored by some, and misunderstood in equal measure by the rest! 
 
The 2CV is also one of Citroen’s greatest hits, running in various forms from 1948 right through to its final incarnation in 1990. Here was a car that has appealed to an extremely broad cross section of society, from French farmers to modern day hipsters. On the same theme is the more upmarket Dyane, along with the utilitarian Mehari. All are huge fun to drive, and simple to maintain.
 
While there aren’t huge numbers to choose from, there is a lot of joy to be had from running a GS or GSA, with a characterful flat-four engine, classic Citroen interior and that great suspension system. The CX is perhaps the biggest bargain in the classic Citroen world, with only the very best GTI Turbo and Prestige models fetching strong money, even though any CX in top condition is a fantastic car to live with.
 
Now well and truly accepted as classics are the 1980s AX and BX models. Both were pioneers of lightweight technology, and the BX in particular proved that mainstream models could be clever, innovative and still be successful – selling more than 2million units. The performance variants are the most desirable with the AX GT and BX GTI 16v commanding significant premiums in top condition. 
 
The executive XM was a classic the second the first car rolled off the production line (also winning the European Car of the Year award in 1990), and the same could be said for the more recent C6. This elegant big saloon has yet to be replaced by the company, making it the last of the big Citroens for now, and almost certainly the last to feature the Hydractive suspension suspension system. 

Buying a performance Citroen


Although Citroen might not be considered immediately in the performance car arena, it has offered a number of slightly oddball choices for many years. Bordering on classic status are the 1990s hot hatches, including the Saxo VTR and VTS. These pocket rockets were idolised by a generation of Max Power readers. They are not just great fun to drive, but also extremely affordable.
 
The larger Xsara VTS is also an interesting bargain performance choice at the minute, offering the same 167bhp 2.0-litre 16v engine as the more respected 306 GTI and Rallye. Its underpinnings are similiar too, and it’s quickly becoming a bit of an endangered species due to the engine’s desirability in the 205 GTI tuning scene. The earlier ZX 16v is another one to consider, if you can find one.
 
While still in daily use around the globe, the regular Xantias might not be considered worthy of mention here, but the Activa models (which feature active roll control) are surprisingly fast machines, and are particularly sought after in 188bhp V6 form. 
  
The C4 VTS was never quite powerful enough to compete against top hot hatch rivals of the day, but it was a cool-looking machine and a pretty solid all-round performer. The limited edition Loeb editions were built to celebrate the company’s fantastic WRC results, and as a result are quite collectible today.
 
The most recent Citroen hot hatch was the DS3 Racing, which put out 204bhp. Using a heavily-tuned 1.6-litre turbo engine, as well as a limited slip differential, the Racing was sold in limited numbers, and is a slightly softer alternative to the stiff competition. 
 

Summary

 
Most car enthusiasts have some first hand experience of Citroens, be it the 2CV you bought as a cheap first car, or perhaps that ride in the back of a DS as a child started your love affair. If you have respect for intelligent, innovative cars then a classic Citroen has probably been on your wish list at some point, and with most models undervalued, you might not want to wait too long to pick one up.

  • Citroën SM '72

    €45,950(£40,385.46) €45,950(£40,385.46)

    In 1961, Citroën began work on 'Project S' — a sports variant of the revolutionary Citroën DS. As was customary for the firm, many running concept vehicles were developed, increasingly complex and upmarket from the DS. Citroën purchased Maserati in 1968 with the intention of harnessing Maserati's high-performance engine technology to produce a true Gran Turismo car, combining the sophisticated Citroën suspension with a Maserati V6. The result was the Citroën SM first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970. It finally went on sale in France in September of that year. All produced were left-hand-drive, although three official RHD conversions were done in the UK, and recently also Australia. The origin of the model name 'SM' is not clear. The 'S' may derive from the Project 'S' designation, the aim of which was to produce what is essentially a sports variant of the Citroën DS, and the 'M' perhaps refers to Maserati, hence SM is often assumed to stand for 'Sports Maserati'. Another common alternative is Série Maserati,[2][3] but others have suggested it is short for 'Sa Majesté' (Her Majesty in French), which aligns with the common DS model's nickname 'La déesse' (The Goddess).

    Lowered price from €12.500 -> €10.500 The Citroën Méhari is a utility car and off-roader produced by the French automaker Citroën. 144,953 Méharis were built between 1968 and 1988. A Méhari is a type of fast-running dromedary camel, which can be used for racing or transport. A Méhariste was a French Armée d'Afrique and Army of the Levant cavalryman that used these camels. The Méhari was based on the Citroën Dyane 6, and had a body made of ABS plastic with a soft-top. It also employed the 602 cc flat twin gasoline engine shared with the 2CV6 and Citroën Ami. A four-wheel drive version of the Méhari was produced from 1980 to 1983 and had excellent off-road qualities, due to the lightness of the vehicle (the standard Méhari weighs just 570 kg (1,300 lb)) and the interconnected fully-independent long travel 2CV suspension used by all of the Citroën 'A-Series' vehicles. For a full description of the suspension, see Citroën 2CV. Specifications Bodywork. Length/width/height/wheelbase – cm (in) : 352/153/163/240 (138.6/60.2/64.2/94.5); weight : 550 kg (1225 lb).

    The Citroën 2CV (French: “deux chevaux” i.e. “deux chevaux vapeur”, literally “two tax horsepower”) was an economy car produced by the French automaker Citroën between 1948 and 1990. It was technologically advanced and innovative, but with uncompromisingly utilitarian unconventional looks, and deceptively simple Bauhaus inspired bodywork, that belied the sheer quality of its underlying engineering. It was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts. It is considered one of Citroën's most iconic cars. In 1953 Autocar in a technical review of the car wrote of "the extraordinary ingenuity of this design, which is undoubtedly the most original since the Model T Ford". It was described by CAR magazine journalist and author LJK Setright as "the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car". It was designed for low cost, simplicity of use, versatility, reliability, and off-road driving. For this it had a light, easily serviceable engine, extremely soft long travel suspension (with adjustable ride height), high ground clearance, and for oversized loads a car-wide canvas sunroof (which until 1960 also covered the boot).

    The Citroën Type C was a light car made by the French Citroën car company between 1922 and 1926 with almost 81,000 u being made. The car was originally called the Type C but was updated to the C2 in 1924 which was in turn superseded by the slightly longer C3 in 1925. The Type C was, and still is, also well known as the 5CV due to its French fiscal rating of its engine for taxation purposes. More colloquial sobriquets, referring to the tapered rear of the little car's body, were 'cul-de-poule' (hen's bottom) and 'boat deck Citroën'. The four-cylinder, 856 cc (52.2 cu in) engine had a bore of 55 mm (2.2 in) and stroke of 90 mm (3.5 in), generating an output of 11 bhp (8.2 kW). There was a single Solex carburettor and magneto ignition. An electric starter was standard, allowing the car to be advertised as especially suitable for lady drivers. There were two types of chassis: the C, which was also used for the C2, and the C3. They varied in length with the original Type C/C2 measuring 2.25 metres (7 ft 5 in) in length, and the 1925 C3 measuring 2.35 metres (7 ft 9 in). The suspension used inverted quarter elliptic springs at the front and rear, braking was on the rear wheels only, cont

    Lowered price from €165.000 -> €159.950! After 18 years of development in secret as the successor to the venerable Traction Avant, the DS 19 was introduced on 5 October 1955 at the Paris Motor Show. The car's appearance and innovative engineering captured the imagination of the public and the automobile industry almost overnight. In the first 15 minutes of the show 743 orders were taken, and orders for the first day totalled 12,000. Far from being just a fascinating technology in search of a purpose, contemporary journalists were effusive in noting how the DS dramatically pushed the envelope in the ride vs. handling compromise possible in a motor vehicle. To a France still deep in reconstruction after the devastation of WW II, and also building its identity in the post-colonial world, the DS motor car was a symbol of French ingenuity. It defied virtually every automotive design convention of that era. It also posited the nation's relevance in the Space Age, during the global race for technology of the Cold War. The high price tag, however, hurt general sales in a country still recovering from WW II, and a cheaper submodel, the Citroën ID, was introduced in 1957. The ID shared the D

    1970 DS 21 Pallas EFI LHD Finished in sable metallise with black leather interior Fitted with factory air conditioning Imported from Greece in 2013 by Classic Citroen specialists Andrew Brodie Engineering. Having received a request from a customer for a rust free DS Pallas EFI it was decided that it would be preferable to source such a vehicle on the continent to meet this criteria. This particular example was located in Athens and a flight was booked for the car to be inspected by Brodie’s. The vendor explained that he’d had the car fully restored and spent circa 30,000 euros on parts alone, all from Citroen specialist Jean Blondeau in Paris. Once the inspection was completed it was decided that the car could be driven back to the UK, it completed this 2,000 mile journey effortlessly and without fault. No real surprise given the expenditure the car had received and the overall condition it was presented in. Since arriving here at Avantgarde we have had it fully serviced, again by Andrew Brodie Engineering, fitted a Retrosound radio and had the air conditioning system serviced. A very special car fitted with very rare factory A/C and ready to enjoy.
