Citroen Cars: Six Cylinder
CITROEN SIX CYLINDER
The Citroen Six Cylinder model follows the Light Fifteen in general style, but its greater width and length permits comfortable seating for a maximum of six people, although both front and rear seats have central folding arm rests.
One of the most interesting features about both Citroen models is the front wheel drive, shown in detail below. The suspension, steering arm and drive are all neatly positioned and it is claimed that this arrangement improves cornering and practically eliminates skidding risks, as the drive "pulls" the car in the direction in which it is steered. The drive illustrated is for the Light Fifteen model. The Six Cylinder drive is similar, but has rubber couplings incorporated in the shafts to provide a cushioned effect.
