    Matt Bell on 16th February 2021

    Citroën’s hydropneumatic suspension creates an almost unrivalled wafty, relaxing driving experience. Only trouble is, the cars that use it - such as the CX, BX and XM - aren’t the most approachable or mainstream choices. The Citroën Xantia brought the hydro-Citroën experience to a car ordinary and sensible enough for normal people and Joe absolutely loves it!
