Neo 1:43 Citroën XM Break
Launched in 1989 to replace the CX, the XM was produced for 11 years but just 330,000 were made in that time – far below predictions. It was built on the floorpan of the Peugeot 605 (but with 'hydropneumatic' suspension) and was the first Citroën to offer a V6 petrol engine since the SM. It won European Car of the Year in 1990. But it wasn't a great success thanks to early reliability problems and resistance to hatchbacks in the executive market (a problem the break version didn't suffer from of course). It was also much more expensive than the CX it replaced. Its hydractive suspension reduced roll compared to previous Citroëns with hydropneumatic suspension and it was generally considered a decent and interesting car. The central double chevrons mark this as a second generation XM.
