Citroen CX History

Citroen CX first appeared in front of the public at the 1974 Paris Motor Show. Then, two models were presented to the public: the CX 2000 with a 1985 cc engine and a CX 2200 engine with a displacement of 2175 cm³. New products were appreciated, as a result, the serial release of CX begins. Initially, the models were proposed: CX 2000 Berline, CX 2000 Economique Berline, equipped with gearbox with more "long" gears and CX 2200 Berline Club.

 

Even today the CX body looks modern, both visually and constructively: a transversely located engine, front drive wheels, an independent hydropneumatic suspension of all wheels, a long base, a wide track, a 6-window body. The Citroen CX differs from other cars in the upper middle class, the wonderful comfort of the wheel suspension and a good spacious interior. Like other cars with a long base and wide gauge, the Citroen CX has excellent longitudinal and lateral stability. In addition, like other front-wheel drive cars, it is insensitive to the side wind.

In 1986, the second restyled CX was produced, in contrast to the first, he touched both the exterior and the interior of the produced models. There were plastic bumpers and a new instrument panel, which retained the architecture of the old model, but at the same time looked modern. The interior is made quite stylish, in dark colors with aluminum inserts. The seats feature excellent lateral support, have adjustments (forwards and backwards, up and down). The steering wheel, by tradition Citroen single-spoke, does not close devices, it is extremely convenient. Overview at the level.
