1974-1989 CITROEN CX specifications Classic and Performance Car

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.
