Who are Citroen?
Citroen is a French car manufacturer, now part of the Peugeot Citroen group based in Paris. The company launched its first vehicle in 1919 and a year later had sold 10,000 cars.
The embodiment of French style, the cars were even advertised on the Eiffel Tower. The iconic Citroen 2CV was first launched back in 1948 and the Dyane in 1967 – remember those? They looked like cute upside-down prams.
Today you’ll find a range of cars that includes everything from the C-Zero, an electric city car, to the C3 Aircross, an award-winning compact SUV.

Can I cut the cost of my Citroen insurance?
Watch out for modified Citroens – insurance costs can rise even if all you do is add a roof rack. If the car has alloy wheels, or the engine has been upgraded, your premium will likely go up.
Make sure the car is parked on a driveway if you have one. And build up your no-claims bonus. If you’re too young or inexperienced for a no-claims bonus, it’s worth looking into telematics.
