The most fascinating thing with Citroën's suspension is that it works also in brutally cold temperatures. I had two, and I live in the North of Sweden, I NEVER had any trouble with it. Neither did the DS and CX Familiales used as taxis, and they were lovely and comfortable, and ENORMOUS inside. The only thing that could drive you mad was the electrical system, it was always something not working or halfway working. Or in need of immediate repair, and that's EXPENSIVE on a big Citroën. They are not easy to deal with, but the mechanics was incredibly sturdy and reliable. The whole cars were rolling paradoxes, but I liked them a lot. The C5 V6 Exclusive was nice.... nice indeed... It was as much NOT Volvo as any car could be. And we had Volvo too, the last one left us with 530,000 Kms on the clock. But a Citroën CX which was serviced correctly and protected against rust could do it too. I know a DS which passed 750,000kms.... and they feel like new until they die. So... they are very good cars. But you have to live with the personality, there must be love.
This car seems to match Mr.D the most
this is the best car ever made .
There are six wheel CX’s with a longer rear length. They used to load them full of newspapers hot off the press and drive them as fast as possible across Europe making deliveries.
Why can't Americans say 'Citroen' or 'Peugeot' correctly ?
Auto Metal means it will know to change bias when a metal tape is inserted.
Totally disappointed if I'm honest. Doesn't have the exclusivity or premium feel (at least not from where I'm sitting) that the Bentayga or Aston's DBX has. Just pimping a GLS isn't good enough Mercedes and where's the V12?!
Ohh look at him he looks happier than ever😂
Jaguar not Jaguwar you prick speak English for fuck sake
11:37 european cars just didnt really have cupholders until mid 2000s. drinking coffee while you drive was seen as american and associated with automatic transmissions.
11:12 You shouldn't be putting on makeup while you're driving, anyway.
Look at that S car go! Remember that Punchline?
The reason this car was so popular for heads of state is the fact that the wide c pillar blocks the view of their head from the outside and provides better protection in the event somebody tries to assassinate them
This car is way ahead of its time
Hey isn't the brake pedal a ball/mushroom? ...probably the older models! ....you forgot to mention a couple of features: ---For one you can drive it with a with a missing wheel! ---Also you don't need a jack to change the tires! It is also super comfortable! ...and surprisingly very reliable! It is very aerodynamic, hence nothing but wind noise when you are cruising! It could also outlast all of us! ...not to mention your kids and their grandsons! Just by doing some basic maintenance this car could outlast all of us by a century or so!!! It would never rust either! I believe it is a weird mixture of alloys, that include aluminum!
I know SOMEONE with one that has it twin turbo
Wait isn't the trx more powerful now?
2:32 Regardless of being left or right handed: I actually don't know any person using their right hand to open the doors on the drivers side.
Wolfgang Bernard signed every single dodge viper V10
It's that weirdness that made Citroen their dedicated fans. And they stopped it.......
This....is a Doug Demuro video I don’t care about.
CONCAVE GLASS IN THE BACK: They did it in that manner so the door from the boot can be little bit deeper so when opened, they do not touch glass. And yes, also for the opening of the trunk to be little bit bigger so you can put bigger objects into the back. They also did that with C5 (2008-2016) and C6. Cheers from Slovenia!
Tesla Model 3 Plaid can do that at a fraction of the cost. With some of the money saved I could buy a grizzly bear's asshole on a roller-skate.😀
Lmao doug got the russians real mad on this one, who knew THIS would be the care they would vigorously defend.
Zero mention or consideration of Kia’s warranty. That, coupled with far less mechanical/repair complexity means I’d take Carnival (worst possible name) over Sienna every time.
The concave window allowed them to remove the rear wiper.
a perfect car for hoovie garage ! why are there no french car dealerships in the usa ?? those little citroen's and peugeots would be perfect cars for the city
Everyone: Mercedes EQS Doug: THISSSSSS IS A CITROËN CX Thats a bit dead.
The biggest advantage of the elevating suspension: the ability to raise up to top height, to change a flat tire! At upper limit, the fixed height jack-post was fitted in the frame notches, and then the car lowered, keeping the wheel elevated off the surface for easy dismounting!!!
It's been to the gym!
Ok so, a FAMILY luxury car with a on/off button in the middle where everyone can reach it.... seems a little dodgy if you ask me....
This makes me proud to be French.
You can fold over the backseat and the passenger seat to get extended cargo space. My dad hauled a lot of long an heavy stuff with it.
Says German car expectantly isn’t funny and makes a German stereotype joke. Maybe you should try acting like in 2021
That trunk reminds me of the 1978-1979 buttless Cutlass.
Wait there’s an LS600h??? I thought it ended at 460??? 🤯
I wish today’s car designers were this innovative.
After the virtual collapse of the Australian domestic auto industry, THAILAND has apparently upped its game and is becoming a significant player in the Asia-Pacific auto market. They are going vs the "big boys" Japan, Korea and China. BTW Mexico has a Pacific Coast(MOTO) and is part of that international market place.
I tried a 2021 basic one and you will be lucky to get to 125 km/h. It also drive like a wooden go-cart. I heard that the top version is ok though. It as a 4 cylinders engine
@11:35 no cupholders because you shouldn't be eating and drinking in ur car as you drive, of course! I never allow food and drink in my car, and with that one rule it remains immaculate. If u need to have a Cocoa and a donut, stop at a shop and stretch for a hot minute.
American: This car is too weird. Citroën sales dude: It has gun trigger door handles. American: Take my money.
"The sunshade goes up to shade you from the sun."
Kia and Hyundai on the rise yall sleep.
Had this car when i was 16-17 years old. Gold with black windows :-) Since than i drove or have been driven in a lot of cars. But comfort in this car can not be measured by anything before or since. It just eats pot holes and speed bumps like they do not exist. Simply the best drive ever, regardless if you cruise on highway or take it on mountain road PS: My had water gauges :-) not the classic ones like this one on this video. And turn signals? You do not even have to adjust to them. They are always there where you need them to be :-)
Thank you for pointing at the shift lever, the pedals and the all the various dash holes and door holes as you're talking about them at camera center, because I never would've seen any of those things.👈👉👆👇☝👍👎
Looks like the Audi RS E
I've owned three of these cars. Great memories.
Car people: The indicators don't cancel! Motorbike people: What's the problem?
The concave back window reduces the glare of the sun and cars from behind. My dad loved the CX we owned three of them. Every we drove with it nearly every year from Germany to France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, with a caravan. The self leveling feature was really useful for that. But they rusted really fast in in the German climat.
That is a Citroen cx prestige ie long wheelbase, I would think the wheels would intrude a little on the normal model? Roll is normal for the car and it doesn't mean the handling isn't any good. The rear window is like that for aerodynamics, to reduce reflections and finally to keep it clear of water via the flow of air over it, note no wiper required. But yes it is pricey to replace. It is one very special car
Review a Merlin Roadster
If Corvette wasn't in the name I would have thought this was a Ferrari...
Imagine you get pissed off and hit the steering wheel on accident
I dont even know why Brits get so mad its not even really a english company anymore it was German then American and now Indian
I'm pretty sure I saw Mclaren Elvas (mules) being road tested the other day. No windscreens. One thing I did notice was how incredible they sounded. FYI, I live not far from a vehicle test facility across the pond. 👍
This is a low speed vehicle.... smh
I've known about it, it's been my dream car for so long 🥺
I’d really like a car like this, a land cruise ship, bench seats, horrid gas mileage
No vacuum available in this minivan. Total fail /s
This list is a major cop out. He could of put genuine cars that people might actually buy or drive. But he instead went with any car he has reviewed regardless of context. Obviously these cars are not good. The trabant, yugo sand BMW are basic but still amazing cars with great heritage and history and uniqueness. They obviously suck tho we didn’t need Doug to tell us that.
I really like their design choices on this car. I don’t think they seem very quirky for the time period. More unique and intriguing than unexpected, except for the radio placement. 🤨 The earlier CX models with the drum speedometer are more quirky.
A very bizarre vehicle
Jay Leno did a review on his personal Citroen. He said it is by far the most comfortable european riding car back in the day. His was an earlier model.
In case you wonder, the C6 was a tribute to the CX.. even the name "cee six" sounds close to "cee ix"
Is that a PS5?
In Canada you will need a D licence to drive it because of the dual axle . years ago some one put an extra axle on a van to look cool but it didn't last when they got charged .
Saddams 560SEL had black interior FYI.
I'm sorry but If I was the richest person in the world I'd still be driving a fucking regular car
weird ugly looking car
Didn't have the money for a decent 6, hence the awful 2.5 turbo 4 cylinder.
I just bought a 2014 Black Raptor after watching your review. Thank you.
G-wagon is ruined now
0-60 in 1.9 seconds + 8 cupholders. What could go wrong?
This car has arcade videogame handling irl
This is one of those cars that are so ugly it’s beautiful
The steering wheel was designed this way as a safety feature. Back then, without all of the safety features of today, there was a fear of a driver being impaled on the driving column during a collision.
Similarly, the spare tire was placed this way to add to driver safety. (Is Doug gonna mention about how easy and unique it is to change a flat tire?)
@7:15 Doug nervously nibbles his fingernails down to the quick, not surprisingly.
That little Toyota probably felt like it got a shoutout
