    Default Is it a D?.....Is it an SM?.....Is it a Cit?????

    http://www.citroenet.org.uk/d5/d5.html

    With a mix of DS and SM coupled to an idea common to early VW, Honda having a finger in the pie and comparisons made to Fiat and Saab, the jury's out on what I think of it; have a read as it might be the closest thing to a D we'll ever see.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    The rear wheel drive bit loses it for me. Otherwise looks quite like quite a fresh update of an ID/ DS, more sloped windscreen, modern C series frontal treatment, probably needs a little more lighting at the back - very interesting.

    Is this true?
    It is just over 5 months since April 1st.
    If it is, then what a tribute to Citroen that a multi-national cosortium should choose to re-design the DS into the next generation of cutting edge automobile design.
    Maybe it will give us the best of both worlds-innovative French design excellence, practicality and flair combined with (dare I say it?) Japanese reliability!

    Citroen suspension, mid-rear engined flat 6, RWD, looks fantastic, versatile seating - now you're talking.

    Seriously, this is the most exciting thing I've seen for a long long while.

    I'll be first on the list when this comes out.

    This is complete fantasy of course, however, Citroen have seen this, and it has caught their immagination. Who knows what might now happen in reality?? I think it's stunning! john s

    C'mon Citroen, we need more RWD engineered vehicles with decent power!

    What is the relationship between PSA Group & Honda by the way?

    LOL - just read it again; last paragraph is funny - they'll drive it "when one of (our) testers gets their licence back".
