1991 Citroën XM series 1

The Citroen XM saloon and estate range went on sale across Europe in 1989, as successor to the long running CX. Europe's motoring jouranlists voted it Car of the Year for 1990 and hopes were high that it could financially compete with more upmarket brands like BMW and Mercedes on export markets as well as in France. With oleo pneumatic suspension and a range-topping 3.0 V6 fuel injection engine, the XM was one of the smoothest riding cars in the world although it was no match for a BMW 5-Series in terms of driver involvement.

During the 1990's the rest of the Citroen range began to become increasingly similar to the Peugeot range, as Citroen had been part of the PSA motoring group since 1975. But the wedge-shaped XM was the most individual car in the whole range, which did nothing to prevent it from being comprehensively outsold by Peugeot-based cars like the Citroen Saxo. After the mid 1990's, only a few hundred cars a year were sold on export markets and this caused second-hand values to plummet at an alarming rate. Eventually the XM was a rare sight even on French roads.


After 11 years on sale, the Citroen XM was quietly withdrawn from production at the end of 2000 with few motorists mourning its passing. A replacement had been in the pipeline since 1998, and the Citroen C6 Lignage concept car which appeared at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show was expected to replace it during 2001. But Citroen was in no hurry to replace the XM, and it was not until 2005 that its successor - the C6 - was introduced.
