French manufacturer Citroen is famous for its iconic 2CV model, one of the most successful cars of all time, with 5,114,940 sold between 1948 and 1990.
But while the 2CV was designed with French farmers in mind, today Citroen aims its cars squarely at families and those looking for a city car. The award-winning Picasso C4 range remains a popular choice for those with kids, while the C4 Cactus and all-electric C-Zero and C-Mehari models are ideal for city driving. All new Citroens carry a three-year warranty.
Citroen stands out in the crowded car market with its unique designs. See, for example, the unusually long windscreen on the C3 family supermini, which stretches halfway into the roof, increasing the field-of-vision by 80°.
Citroen was founded in Paris in 1919 by industrialist André Citroën. The company sold 10,000 vehicles within its first year.
Citroen’s next major launch is the Aircross, an SUV that was unveiled at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show and is scheduled to go into production by 2018.
With almost a century in the automotive business Citroen has produced dozens of different models, with countless variations of each. Here are four of the most popular Citroens:
