The Citroën CX is a large, front-engined, front-wheel-drive executive car manufactured and marketed by Citroën from 1974 to 1991. Production models took the form of a four-door fastback sedan, station wagon (estate), and a long-wheelbase fastback limousine.
The Citroen CX is a crazy car with amazing quirks. Today I’m reviewing the Citroen CX and I’ll show you all the weird quirks of this unusual French luxury car. I’m also driving the Citroen CX, and I’ll show you what it’s like behind the wheel of a weird 1980s Citroën! Watch the video from Doug DeMuro:
The CX is known for its hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension system, and its low coefficient of drag, underscored by its nameplate CX, which references the aerodynamics symbol CX for drag coefficient.
Originally, the CX was developed as a rotary-engined car—with several negative consequences. Production versions of the CX were powered by a range of inline four cylinder engines – only the very rare 122 kW (166 PS) GTi Turbo (1985–89) ever had the engine power to match the capabilities of the chassis.via: wikipedia
