    They look very plain in a good way, their looks are pretty understated.

    The Alpines are fantastic examples, too, and that newer model, the A610, kind of resembles an FB RX-7 from that angle.

    EDIT: It's not very often that I'd say it, but Citroen needs to take a long, hard look at their wacky designs of the 60s and 70s. They're so crazily lovable compared to the boring creations they're coming up with today.

    I don't know what happened that made French car design turn the corner from simple, elegant, but slightly quirky, to being downright messes of crumpled random lines and poor proportions.

    Example: Citroen AX. Nice, clean design, with just a bit of that French quirkiness.

    Now this is their supermini:

    I've never seen that new C1 before, that looks horrid.

    I'd definitely agree that the AX is the winner in this scenario, but what's with Citroen's thing for lower rear wheel arches? Most of their 70s models have them covered up, and even the AX has a flatter line running along the arches. Not complaining because it looks nice, but they've got to be the people that use them the most.


    EDIT: Since we're on the topic of Citroen, what's the general opinion on the Xantia? It's a boring mid-late 1990s model (which isn't to say it looks bad, it's quite nice) but it seems like the last car before they started using LSD as a design influence.

    I love simply designed, understated cars. That probably feeds my fascination for Giugiaro's "folded paper" design principle (Lotus Esprit, MkI Golf, Delorean, etc).

    French cars are eccentric in style and exude a unique flair which more or less makes you think "wat".

    TBH I'd rather drive an ugly new supermini than deal with this shit:

    I actually like that steering wheel. There's something very eccentric about their old designs that makes them unique, I'm a fan of it.

    Oh no, I don't mind the wheel either. It's the cabin layout that irks me. Either French people have four arms and three tiny feet, or they didn't bother flicking through an ergonomics/anthropometry handbook. The running lights are a button to the right of the instrument cluster. The blinkers are a switch on the centre console. The horn is nowhere you'd expect it: you push that little stalk to the centre right of the wheel- like a Delorean, but worse. The door is coated in carpet.

    It's just loony.

    Well to be fair, Citroens of that age are all show and no go anyway. The interior would probably be the least of your problems if you owned one these days.

    Also, looking at the wheel design, I've always thought that it would be prone to bending, what with the support only being at the bottom middle. It just seems like something that could be easily knocked out of shape.

    I've always entertained the idea that it's just a neat feature where the wheel cushions your head in a crash as long as it's in the right position.
