Citroen showcases fans' stories as brand turns 100

As we recently mentioned on these pages, iconic car brand Citroen turns 100 this year and it is celebrating with a string of events and promotions throughout 2019.

However, it has also recognised that its cars would be nothing without the people that buy them - and so the French manufacturer has decided to pay tribute to Citroen fans all over the world with a new set of videos on its website.

In Citroen Generations, families who have owned and loved their Citroen cars have been invited to tell their stories about driving, collecting or tinkering with their beloved vehicles - and it makes for a fascinating archive.

A number of different people are featured in seven video episodes and their passion for their cars clearly shows, as does the relevancy of the famous tagline 'Inspired by You'.

Each family has their own anecdotes, from Denis Fontaine in France who has more than 15 Citroens in his garage, to Luke Stare in Slovenia who can't get enough of the 2CV.

Together, the videos show how Citroen has become hugely important in popular culture and how the cars people choose really do weave themselves into the everyday lives of families.

You can take a look at the stories on the Citroen Origins website, which is sure to lead to a long trip down memory lane if you've ever owned one of the cars mentioned.

We'd also love to hear your stories about cars you've owned and loved, whether they have been Citroens or not - and if you're tempted to invest in one of the French cars the next time you're on the lookout for new car deals!

To further its centenary celebrations, Citroen is heading to the Power Maxed MotoFest Coventry 2019 event on June 1st and 2nd to put more than 1,000 vehicles on display at the automotive show.

Citroen sold more than a million vehicles in over 80 countries in 2018, cementing its reputation as one of the most popular brands in the world.
