1974-1989 CITROEN CX specifications


Enthusiasts generally refer to 1975’s CX as the last of the true Citroëns because it was the final model launched before Peugeot took over. A technological tour de force with typically innovative and individualistic sleek looks, the CX featured the usual hydraulics controlling many aspects of the car plus Vari-power self-centring steering, which took a little getting used to. The interior was simply mad, although from 1985, Series 2 cars had traditional instrumentation and colour-coded bumpers. Engines extended from 2-litre petrol to 2.5-litre diesel.
