    Citroen C4 Picasso review

    By 21 June 2013

    The idea of an MPV being exciting is one which very few believe is actually possible. With the new C4 Picasso, Citroen hopes to change that. Dynamic styling, a 12-inch HD screen and an extremely bright interior with 5.3 metres square of glass, all put...

    Citroen DS3 DSport 155 Red review

    By 29 April 2013

    We'll be honest, we love the DS3. It does have its foibles, but as a complete three-door hatchback package, it is up there with the best. Right now it sits in between the Fiat 500 and the Mini in terms of price, offering just as much fun as each, a strong...

    Citroen DS3 Cabriolet review

    By 3 April 2013

    In a world obsessed with the cult of retro, the Citroen DS3 stands out against the likes of the Fiat 500 and Mini. Its looks would make even Marty McFly do a double take, with a futuristic design that is as eye-catching as it is functional. You see the...

    By 21 June 2012

    One question that arises time and again, is why car makers build concept cars. And why the stuff that actually appears in the showrooms looks nothing like the wild design that appeared on a motorshow stand two years earlier. The answers of course, are...

    By 27 April 2012

    Like many concept cars we saw in Beijing, the DS Numero 9 didn’t have an interior. Why? We’re not sure. Possibly politics, because Citroën as a French firm needs to hold something back for its "home" motor show in Paris in September. Possibly there...

    Bling. Unless you’ve been watching lots of Jay-Z videos on MTV recently, it's probably not the first thing you think about when it comes to cars. But we reckon Citroen’s DS4 is one of the first cars to truly embrace bling and Citroen’s hoping that...

    Citroën’s big concept at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, which kicks off next week, is this – the bizarrely named C-Cactus. At once cute and deranged, the C-Cactus is eco-friendly (natch) and packed with technology. A diesel hybrid engine returns...

    Citroën has made the C2 more attractive (not difficult) by taking its lively 125bhp C2 1.6i 16V VTS supermini and chucking in cow skin seats, sporty exterior styling touches and an exclusive paint job. The C2 Code special edition – pretty good value...

    We’ve all been there. You see a gap in a row of parked cars and it looks impossibly tight. You pull up next to it and try to work out if you can fit. You either bottle it and park a mile away or you go for it. Wouldn’t it be nice to know instantly...
