I am not a fan of French cars as such but I have a soft spot for Citroens. They always seem so French. Peugeot and Renault have never made distinctive cars, but Citroen have never really followed the crowd. I love the DS but personally love the CX estate. Bonkers big, rides like a sofa, bonkers dash. That's what designing a car properly should be. Don't copy everything else! All cars now are copies of VAG products in the main which is frankly depressing.
I am very fortunate to get a free company car. I don't get to choose my car but I am secretly hoping I get a Citroen!!! I think their new cars are fantastic - they look different and don't follow the crowd. They aren't as crazy as in the 70's but its nice to get something different (especially I don't pay for maintenance).
Reminds me of something James May said after "reviewing" the C6 on Top Gear, it was something like: "I really, really approve of this car. Now watch it flop."
But as I've said before, the DS is a thing of beauty and innovation - nowadays, mostly it's a case of the iPhone formula for a car.
