Citroen, the French manufacturers are based in the quaint commune of Saint-Ouen and were established back in 1919.
There's plenty of gold for used buyers to unearth when it comes to shopping for used Citroëns. Whereas once the marque had a rather flaky reputation for reliability and some decidedly lacklustre products, the brand has come very good in recent years, so finding quality used Citroen stock isn't a problem.

The Used Citroen DS3, C3 Picasso and C4 Picasso ranges have attracted a hugely favourable press and user demand is especially strong so it can be tough to find bargains here. A more promising hunting ground is the used Citroen C5, especially in estate guise. Sometimes there's no substitute for a big, comfy, well-finished estate car and the C5 is about as good as it gets. With clean 09-plated 2.0 HDI VTR+ models retailing at around £7,500, why would you look elsewhere? The big Citroen C6 attracts a cult following for its TGV chic, but £10,000 will net you a low mileage 2008 car in Lignage trim with the lovely 2.7-litre HDi diesel engine. Is there a more relaxing way to travel?
