Citroen will launch their new Citroen DS brand with the help the most successful WRC driver - ridiculously fast in anything with four wheels and generally all round nice guy - Sebastien Loeb.

Sebastien Loeb has won nine of his WRC drivers’ with Citroen and is set to reunite with co-driver Daniel Elena, together making a once-off appearance at next year’s Rally Monte-Carlo.

Loeb’s most recent racing exploits have taken place in the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) in his Citroen C-Elysée WTCC car, winning two rounds of the championship and coming third overall for the 2014 season behind fellow Citroen team mate Yvan Muller. In 2013 he has also managed four wins in the FIA GT Series, racing a McLaren MP4, as well as smashing the Pike Peak record in a specially developed Peugeot 208 T16.

“Obviously, it’s going to be a personal challenge for me as I haven’t competed in a rally for over a year. A few days from now I’m going to take part in the Rallye du Var and that will give me a chance to reacquaint myself with the car”, remarked the demure Frenchman.

Catch Loeb in action from 19-25 January 2015.

Watch a special compilation video over the years (above), of the most successful WRC driver ever.

Citroen C4 Cactus Video Review - Carshop Drive 6
With the new Citroen C4 Cactus you either sit firmly in the ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ camp. Without exception, no one is seems ambivalent to the Cactus’s quirky exterior, as we experienced when filming our video review. With stiff competition from the likes of Nissan's equally quirky Juke, does the C4 Cactus manage enough to stand out from the Crossover crowd?

New Citroen C1 Review - Airscape
Sure the new C1 is bigger, has a fantastic engine, is frugal and more fun to drive and highly specced, but to many the original C1s attraction was its price point and in that regard, as good as the new Citroen C1 is, it’s asking a lot in a very competitive, brand loyal, small car market.
