Founded in 1919, Citroën was the first manufacturer outside the United States to produce mass-produced automobiles. Andre Citroën's ambition was to turn cars into products accessible to everyone, and his bold talent and vision left a mark that continues to this day. Today, Citroën reinvents itself with models such as the C3, C4 Cactus or the C3 Aircross and C5 Aircross compact SUVs that emphasize modern design, comfort and intelligent technology.
