The debut of the BX took place in Paris in 1982, where the car was presented in several versions at once, and aroused great public interest. Citroen BX design belongs to the famous Italian studio Bertone. Aimed at a wide range of buyers, this two-box 5-door 5-seater hatchback sits between the CX and GSA.
Citroen BX was one of the first to receive glued-in windshield and rear windows, an almost flat bottom and recessed door handles, which, despite the obvious angularity of the forms, endowed the car with excellent aerodynamic properties. Lowdrag coefficient BX has become one of the leaders among mass-produced models. But the main strong point of Citroen's designers is the hydropneumatic suspension, a real source of comfort.
Another signature Citroen is the single-spoke steering wheel.
The car was offered with three engine options, by the way, the type of power unit was determined by the index following the name.

The BX Break uses an updated gas-oil suspension system, which not only provides high ride comfort, but is also adjustable depending on the weightmasks of the transported load.

The front passenger has two glove compartments at his disposal. Moreover, the lower one is two-story and lockable. Between the front seats, next to the handbrake, is an inconspicuous 4-way switch that controls the hydropneumatic suspension.
Despite the fact that for the entire time of production, the appearance of the car has practically not changed, and even the copies of the last years of production do not shine with modern forms, the BX cannot be denied practicality. HFor example, it is convenient to get into the car. And not only forward, but also backward. The rear wheels are located almost under the trunk, so the rear doors are large and wide. The passenger sofa is unexpectedly spacious. It is also pushed far back, and there is plenty of legroom. Such an advantageous layout of the cabin was achieved because the rear of the car is not cluttered from the inside by springs and shock absorbers. They are replaced by compact accumulators.
