Never own any but sat in BX and Xantia with their magic carpet rides.

 

My favourite is CX and XM but never sat in either.

Din like the fact that the signal need to manually switch off. According to the sales person, this is call fully engage with the driving... in other words BS at its highest level.

Citroen suspension is very impressive.

I test driven Grand Picasso, amazed by the suspension and quietness of the car. The “Magic Carpet” suspension on C5 Aircross is coming....even better. Peugeot award winning 1.2L engine is being used in Citroen.

See this review, Citroen suspension is way way better than BMW.

This 10 year old video is that of the C6, the last hydropneumatically-suspended Citroen. No more already. Cut for costs reasons.

 

The Cit GP is impressive in some ways - its design and space. Don't think it was very quiet, and neither was the ride amazing. No different from the previous Peugeot 5008.

 

For me, the only USP of a Citroen is the hydropneumatic suspension. Without it, its not worth the trouble.

 

At least they are innovating again. Let's wait and see how their Progressive Hydraulic Cushions work out in real life in their incoming refreshed C4 Cactus.

My dad had a light blue one back in the early 90's. Loved that car and as a young kid then my brother and I used to get so excited to see the car lift up every time it started. It's like riding in a spaceship LOL.

 

Even the dash was super unique.

 

So many memories of riding around in it.

 

In fact can still remember the plate SBB 8540M

 

Replaced by a Fiat that was a complete POS

Have to agree on this.

 

The interior is way more beautiful than some of the premium contis especially the DS range.

Probably in order for the premium contis to look a tad more atas like Citroen, you have to get the S-line from Audi or the M line from BMW.

It did in fact have the pneumatic suspension

 

The control lever for the suspension was beside the handbrake if I can recall. And the green spheres were visible in the engine bay.

Growing, the I used to fascinate about Citroen especially the XM....

 

So I had 2 Citroen

C4GP in 2009

Made the driver stupid.  Everything set to auto, lights, wipers and parking brake.  After sometime, I forgot how to dis-engage the parking brake manually.  The car is so comfy, my very active kids were able to fall asleep inside. The coolest part of the car is the gigantic windscreen which stretch beyond and on top of your head.  Makes the car very spacious and airy.  However, reliability was a concern as one of the water pump broke within 1 year and replacement part took 3 weeks to arrive.  CnC provided a courtesy car for the entire duration it was at the workshop.

 

C5 Exclusive with pneumatic suspension in 2011

Change to the this C5 after the C4GP.  No need to say,  the suspension is just superb and car height was adjustable depending on circumstance.  Steering wheel was cool as its fixed centre.  Car was comfortable and really quiet.  No issues for 2 years of ownership.  First to have the HID headlights that swivel according to your direction.  Was useful when we went to LCK in the wee hours during Qing Ming...

 

In summary, Citroen is very comfortable and gadgets laden....

​Unique to Citroens of those days, the suspension, steering and brakes are linked in the same high-pressure hydraulic system that is powered by a engine-driven pump. The pump stops working when the engine is off, and the system loses pressure over time. The suspension will then slowly sink down onto its bump stops.

 

If you parked nose in, your front bumper may be grounded on a high kerb, or your exhaust will be supporting the back of the car if you reverse parked. Sometimes, after you climbed into the car, you can't close your door as it has gotten stuck on the pavement!

 

When you start the engine, the pump works to power up the hydraulic system, and Voila! The suspension will rise up again, say after 30 seconds, and you can begin your magic carpet journey!

 

As a matter of habit I will peer under the car as I approach it, to check if there is a green puddle underneath, as the system is prone to leak. It's a good day if the floor remains dry.

 

I loved ALL my 4 Citroens (when they are in working condition, that is)   [laugh]  

 

http://www.mycarforu...cars/?p=6239714

 

Apparently later Citroens from the 2000 C5 onwards have a valve to stop the suspension from sinking.
