  • Citroen C4 Cactus

    Citroen hasn't been seen on U.S. shores for many years now, but if its latest production vehicle is anything to go by, that's something of a pity. Called the C4 Cactus, it's Citroen's latest take on the compact crossover hatchback. Most comment will go to its unusual name and even more unusual styling, but the Cactus is among the cleverest compact cars we've seen for decades in terms of usability, weight-saving and efficiency. Ultra light The car's weight is possibly its most impressive aspect. Typical compacts have crept ever heavier over the past few decades as they've grown, as safety kit...

    Citroens haven't been sold in North America since 1974, but in many ways their 'forbidden fruit' status makes them even more desirable. The French maker's current DS range doubly so--inspired by the elegant and beautiful DS that ran from the 1950s until the 1970s, each current DS exhibits typical French design flair with a high-quality feel, placing them a level above Citroen's regular models. With the Paris Auto Show fast approaching, marques like Citroen are given coverage on a world stage, and this year an electric version of the DS3 subcompact will make an appearance. The DS3 is Citroen's...
