Perhaps the most charismatic of French marques, Citroen was established in 1919 by the brilliant, mercurial Andre Citroen. In 1934 Citroen introduced the Traction Avant model, which became one of the most famous designs in automobile history. In 1948, on a similar theme, the idiosyncratic, two-cylinder 2CV appeared, a much-loved model with a distinctive roll-back roof; it was built until 1990. Then there were the elegant, futuristic DS, the luxurious Maserati-engined SM and the acclaimed XM. This edition brings the story up to date with the popular Xsara saloon, the Picasso compact multi-purpose vehicle and the commodious and comfortable C5.
