Ad of the week: This car has its ups and downs

This week features a great ad highlighting the Hydropneumatic suspension of the Citroen DS.

This car has its ups and downsThis car has its ups and downs.

Moody?  No.  French, and logical.

When road conditions change, you can change the height of a Citroen car to suit the road.   Citroen can do it, and only a Citroen.

Deeply rutted road, heavy snowdrift?  Uo you go, and pull away with plenty of clearance.

Flat tire? Raise her up higher still.   The jacking is automatic, and only on a Citroen.

Regular road or smooth turnpike?  Cruise along at normal height.   The comfort is something to marvel at.

By means of a lever you control Citroen’s ups and downs without leaving the drivers seat (varying the driving clearance from 6 1/2″ to 12″).


Citroen’s exclusive Air-Oil Suspension system seems to actually change the road.   Reducing fatigue.  Eliminating ruts.  Flattening bumps.   As if Citroen was rolling out its own carpet of concrete.   What could be more French… or logical.. than Citroen, the Most considerate car in the world.
