    I don't think he's fussy about gender (not that there's anything wrong with that!)

    It was a french translation so it will be gendered. I was trying to point out that at present the C3 seems to be a bread and butter sales winner for Citroen....

    C3 - the new BX?
    It seems the C3 is the most popular car citroen has to offer at the moment.
    The BX was also a real winner in it's day, the first PSA Citroen on offer too, and it supposedly showed in the reliability statistics.
    Seems to me the C3 is out to increase Citroen's market share in much the same way as the BX did.

    Yes that was indeed true, the BX was without doubt the car that saved citroen from going to the wall.
    People have slagged off the BX for being a re-badged pug, which to an extent is true.
    However, NO car company can survive on just sentiment alone, you MUST have a product that people want to buy. (look what happened to rover, the 25, and 45 were selling in ever smaller numbers, and the inevitable happened)
    The BX turned the fortunes of the ailing citroen company around, and for a few years, the BX was the car of choice for company reps, and people with caravans!
    Here in england, the most popular people carrier by some considerable way, is the Xsara picasso, it wipes the floor with its rivals. I gather it's due to be replaced soon, with the C4 picasso, which will hopefully finish the others off! john s

    Yeah I hired a Picasso diesel in London - went all round England init - cheap to run, heaps of tow, quiet motor (for a diesel), no squeaks or rattles, everything worked including electricals, never missed a beat. Go figure

    I stand corrected then The first "real" (hydro-pneumatic) citroen anyway, but I may be rong agenn Did the Visa have hydro?
    AFAIK the LN was purely just a 104 with a cit engine anyway.
