Citroen Ami Review

Is this a 21st century Citroen 2CV, is it genius, is it even a car?

The Citroen Ami is like no other car. And that’s partly because it isn’t quite a car. Technically it’s a Quadricycle – a four-wheeled vehicle with limitations on performance (it can’t exceed 28mph) and weight (it must be well under 500kg).

Compact Crossover offers Captivating Style!

If you want style and panache from a car you might want to take a look at European brands that are funnelling the essence of continental catwalk fashion into the themes and aesthetics of their automobiles.
