The 2CV is probably the best known and most instantly recognisable Citroen of all time. Designed to provide economic options similar to those found with Volkswagen’s Beetle, the Citroën 2CV soon became a popular choice among drivers in Europe. At one point, it had a waiting list that was 3yrs long.

Despite its unassuming appearance, the Citroën 2CV featured an engine that was innovative and advanced for its time.  The car was designed with a two horsepower engine, which made it suited for light loads and coupled with its high ground clearance, adjustable suspension and fairly uncomplicated engine, the Citroën 2CV won much praise for its pragmatic design.
