Same car, different name. That will make the forum title a bit confusing in time?

With ball the new citroen crosshairs coming out, C5 Crossair announced today, it is probably the run out model before the C4 Crossair arrives.

They had to pay the estate of Pablo a sum of money yearly to use the name. Decided enough was enough.  My name is Barron if Citroen want to put the name on a car!  I don't charge much.

The odd thing is that Citroen already has/had a 'Spacetourer'. A big van type thing. https://vans.honestj...ce-tourer-2016/

 

Perhaps they should have a bigger budget for thinking up names, Spikey Cactus, Air-cross Dresser and Nemo the Fish also annoy me ;-) At least we were spared the Fukang! https://en.wikipedia...Citro├źn_Fukang

 

Thinking about that, I did once have a Fukang Citroen, which was a rather unreliable ZX 1.4

Why did Citroen name the car after a painter?  There is bound to be a name for a collection of Failed auto electricians which would have been much more appropriate.
