  • "The Shark"... That was the nickname of this car here in Serbia. Or rather, the entire line that shared this general shape (including its smaller predecessor GS). However, Citroen was not widely popular here until recently. What helped was, most likely, the giving up of (most of) those quirks as well as Citroen starting cooperation with some companies from here which made them a bit more affordable. I myself am currently the owner of a 2004 Citroen C2. After a year of owning it, I still am not used to it completely and just feels a bit weird driving it for some reason. For example, all of my previous cars were VWs and even today when I sit at the wheel of any of those, I feel great... Back to Citroen... The only quirk I can find in C2 is - location of power window switches. They are on central console, in front of the shifter! Basically on the floor, blocked by the shifter! Why? Beats me... BTW, 2:30 - my guess why the handle is like that, better suited for opening it with left hand is because they presumed you would hold your car keys with your right hand while unlocking it... Oh, one more thing... Even here (Europe) nowadays, French cars are known to be complicated and expensive for maintenance and repairs, generally speaking... Less true today, but still... The most notorious for this is Peugeot, 2nd place goes to Renault and finally - Citroen.

  • The Prestige is the long wheel base limo version and has the raised roofline from the estates. It looks slightly odd as a result. The steering is like this as the geometry of the system provides no natural self centering - however it is incredibly stable and deals with a tyre blowout no problem - as does the suspension which can even cope with 1 rear wheel missing!

  • I really liked the older model with the rounder lines. 60s I'm guessing? The ones that were on the road when I was a kid growing up in the 60s and I'd see parked on the street sometimes in my neighborhood. Beautiful, futuristic machines. They were in fact, ahead of their time. 👍

  • 4:47 They probably could have made them self canceling, but anyone who has owned or driven any French car from the 50's up till the early 90's will know.. The French did not do self canceling indicators. 16:11 The reason it's so huge is because it's a "Prestige" edition, which had a longer wheelbase than the normal CX.

  • Growing up we had a GS, then a BX. They shared many of the weird features mentioned here. The other great feature of the suspension was when you needed to change a wheel. Set it to full height, place the jack at the jacking point, wind it so it touches the floor but doesn't lift the car, then turn off the ignition. The other 3 wheels sink back down, and the wheel that you are trying to change gets lifted off the ground by the angle the car leans to. You barely need to manually operate the jack at all. The BX had 2 headphone sockets in the rear - plug headphones in and the radio was muted and sent to the headphones. As kids we loved this. It had the rear window controls at the back of the centre console as mentioned, accessible to the driver and all passengers but didn't have the extra ones in the door. I suspect the ones in the door were only fitted on more expensive models.

  • We used to own one back in the 80ties, mom would get upset each time she broke a fingernail while trying to open the door. The door handles are not very nail friendly. @ mnthe.info/bill/video/mrGa3GnZgoZ8rqY you mention there is no gear indication, however originally there was, you can see the little rectangular space where there used to be a little plate showing the gears. It is just missing on this car. Blank buttons are actually pretty common on many brands in Europe of that era. They are used for options not purchased on your model. No lid in the trunk is more an advantage than a problem. Chances of id opening while doing a hill climb are relatively small compared to the comfort of not have to lift heavier things over a trunk-lid.

  • Note that Cx is the name of the Drag Coefficient in French (noted Cd in Englis), therefore the name CX of this vehicle who was designed with a shape offering the lowest drag coefficient of the industry at this time. Even the concave rear window contributed to the low drag. See fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coefficient_de_tra%C3%AEn%C3%A9e#Valeurs_du_Cx

  • Hi. Why are you so sarcastic? Why, coming from a country who had invented nothing the last 50 years, do you judge before thinking? If you want a car as confortable as a hydro Citroën you will have to pay at least two o three time the price. Citroën always had different points of view. You say he get "only" 170 HP. Probably you forgot the nice, high-tech and potent US cars of the 80's and early 90's....

  • I have had three Citroen CX in the past the steering is a bit strange at first but brilliant when you get used to it, the suspension system also operates the power steering and brakes, the brakes taking some getting used to as it is like putting your foot on a brick, but they are very comfortable and very safe as if you should suffer a tyre blow out the suspension system takes all the weight off of the tyre that has blown out and keeps the car under control, in fact Citroen made a video for advertising purposes showing one being driven with a wheel missing. If Citroen were to start making the CX again then I would not hesitate in buying one.

  • This guy has very much missed the point about the steering wheel stalks. This design was deliberate to avoid the driver needing to take their hands off the wheel. if you keep your hands at "10 and 2 o'clock" you can access the buttons for lights, indicators etc and dropping down to 9 and 3 o'clock you can get the other buttons. It's not a consequence of the single stalk wheel which is purely aesthetic.

  • The Citroen CX was first a British BMC. BMC used _subframes,_ which would hold the engine, g/box and suspension all in the frame. The rear subframe held the suspension. This approach was easy to adept to new cars. Just restyle the body and bolt on the subframes. Farina designed a car for BMC using Austin 1800 subframes. The design was rejected by the useless BMC management. Citroen took it up. The BMC is the yellow car: citroenvie.com/tag/bmc-1800/

  • All Citroens of that era had non-cancelling indicators, they just thought you should control it. The concave rear window had no wiper and the concave shape used the wind as you went along to blow the rain off it. There was a great need for lots of change on French roads as you had to pay to use lots of roads and bridges. The rest of Europe did not buy French cars much but the French were and still are hugely loyal to their home brands.

  • In the early 80's I was working for a company in Dubai and they hired a CX for transport, so I got to drive one. It was truly weird and this car had the strange "semi automatic" transmission which I thought bad engineering. They should have made it fully automatic, and thats it. The steering, seemed like it had a life of its own. The electric switches were stalks and some like this car. Yes, the suspension hydraulics is overly complicated and I think its connected to the steering circuit, or they use the same pump. I too found the handling....wishy woshy, I mean if it was an airplane then it would have worked out fine, but not a road vehicle. Its a good example of what engineers can come up with.

  • I have drive-in two of them. Not exactly this version because the ‘Prestige’ is the long version(+ 20 cm). In its time the turbodiesel version was the fastest diesel car in the world. @Doug: to really understand the car, you should try to drive its predecessor the DS and the SM, Some well preserved of them drive in the USA (check Jay Leno’s. Garage). An advantage of the steering system was that the car was very stable, at ease while drive-ins at high speed, Much more than its competitors. The one spoke steering wheel avoided head injuries in times that there were no airbags. The wheel cover at the back is also present at the cars mentioned above, I never considered that an ugly detail, in the contrary! It is an aërodynamical feature (the reason for the name of the car ‘CX’)

    • You didn't get the difference or he didn't enough clearly explained. Yours self centers just by suspension geometric and cars own weight. This one hydraulically self centers, even when the car is stand still. Yours will be sensitive to tire pressure and will pull right or left if tire pressures right/left are different or you have a flat tire..... because as said above yours self centers just with car weight and suspension geometry. This one hydraulically self centers and is insensitive to tire pressure problems, it will still go straight even with a flat tire. Even if your have a flat tire, the rim will not be sitting on the ground thanks to hydraulic suspension. In your car, the steering is either electric or hydraulic assisted but a mechanical steering. In this car, the steering is fully hydraulic, meaning that your steering wheel is basically connected to a hydraulic valve, what you do by turning the wheel is to operate a hydraulic valve. There is no direct mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the rods. In that sense, the steering system is rather similar to the one generally seen in construction equipment's ( such as grader, loader etc.) than to yours + hydraulic self center. The self center promptness is not speed dependent like in yours but constant.
