CITROEN CX (1974-1991) CAR HISTORY

Car review on CITROEN CX

For most people the name Citroen conjures up images of cars that are quirky, eccentric, and idiosyncratic— in short, weird. More than any other model, the CX is the one which firmly reinforces these beliefs.


However, the CX is also one of the most misunderstood and underrated cars of all time. On the one hand, it is remembered as one of the all-time greats of motoring history; on the other, it has been dismissed as an unreliable, rust-infested, needlessly complex nightmare.
The CX was undoubtedly the last great Citroen, the last car Citroen got to design entirely in-house, before Peugeot bought the company in 1974 and began shaking its rod. Historically, it was the replacement for the brilliant DS, in production since 1955 and in dire need of a modern successor.


What arrived shortly after was more than just modern: it was positively futuristic. Its GS- and SM-inspired shape was not only one of the most aerodynamic ever seen on a motor car, it was also beautiful. Like the DS before it, it bristled with advanced features. The brilliant self-leveling hydro pneumatic suspension was there, tied in with the braking and power-steering functions. On all but the earliest CXs, the steering also came with Vari-Power, Citroen's patented weighted power assistance, which altered the weighting of the steering according to your speed.


Europe was impressed enough to award the CX the Car of the Year trophy. Its handling was assured, its ride magical, its cruising ability ultra-relaxed, and its character unique. The interior looked as if it had been sculpted by an artist rather than designed for mass consumption, and the instruments, sited in a space-age binnacle, revolved themselves around stationary needles. Compared to the competition, the CX cleaned up - or should have done.


Where Citroen got it so badly wrong was in the build quality. In particular, there was a terminal rust problem every bit as bad as Alfa Romeo's during the 1970s, and it was this, more than anything, which crippled the CX. By the time Citroen had sorted the problem out-which took fully seven years — the CX already had a very bad name, made worse by the public's and the trade's suspicion of the eccentric hydraulic system.


History may well be kinder to the CX. In GTI Turbo form, it was stunningly quick and handled like a hot hatch. In long-wheelbase, luxury Prestige form it was the choice of French presidents. In eight-seater estate (station wagon) form, it was the most capacious European car around. Its replacement, the XM, looked just as individualistic as the CX, but it lost many of the features that made the CX unique.
