Citroen, the look of a car starts the headlights
We need to take a step back, a leap of about a century. When in 1919 ended the First World War, an innovator of the caliber of André Citroën seemed completely normal to be the first in Europe to introduce a car built on the assembly line, equipped with series of a brand new pair of headlights electrical. It was the 10 HP. “Dear lord,” said the sellers of Citroën, with its new 10HP will be enough to turn a switch and magically see ahead in the darkness the darkness!”.

a Few years later, the company found itself once again facing the question of traction made by the animals: in many rural areas of Europe (including the French region of Auvergne, where it came from Boulanger, the Director General of Citroën) in the middle of the years ’30 and the car had not yet supplanted the horses. Indeed, in many areas there were not even roads and Citroën thought it was time to give these people a new car designed for their needs.

so it Was that in the ’36 became the project that would have led to the Citroën 2CV, and since there was no written anywhere that the headlights had to be two, and it was necessary that the cars cost the least, and the TPV (as it was known then) headlights had one, nice and big, suspended above the right side of the front hood. After the Second World War, at the Paris Salon of 1948, the 2CV debuted with his final appearance and the headlights they obviously had two, with a peculiarity: since the 2CV was equipped with a suspension very soft (it was designed to work even in the absence of the road) and was born to bring potatoes, peasants, and barrels of wine (in addition to the eggs!), it was easy to vary the inclination of the drive by moving the load between the seats and the trunk, thereby changing the flow rate of the light beam. The 2CV had a throttle internal that could change the scope of the headlights without the driver were to move from the driving seat, according to that philosophy special at the base of the project of the car: nothing is more sophisticated than the simplicity!

Then it was the turn of the Goddess of automobiles, DS19, that in ’67, twelve years after its launch, had the gift of a new face that included four beautiful lighthouses reels under a glass screen. The two lighthouses of the inner milling around on their vertical axis, following the steering movements, the two most external, overhead, they followed the path of the oscillations of the body of the car, dynamically adapting their reach to every movement of the DS. The experience was extended to the large Coupé, the SM, presented in 1970, that of the headlights he had up to six.

Then there was the oil crisis. In 1974, Citroën launched its new sedan CX, which, as you perceive by his name, was in the aerodynamics, its main card. The excellent profiling and the adoption of ultramodern engines (the CX was long the Diesel car of the fastest series in the world) guaranteed to the largest sedan the French and reduced fuel consumption. To arrive at these results, Citroën designed the headlights are trapezoidal which integrates perfectly in the profile of the car, at the same time providing excellent performance and reduced rolling resistance. The headlights aerodynamic of the CX were produced until 1991, in the version with “four lights” that integrated the projectors of depth.

Two years earlier, in 1989, with the new flagship XM, Citroën had introduced the new headlights very low, perfectly integrated in the front of the car, which, thanks to the parables of elliptic expressly designed by Valeo, offered a yield of 45% more than the projectors of the traditional similar surface.

Moving to more recent times, the modern range has had a strong innovation with the C4 Cactus, in 2014, has opened a new design with a signature luminous technology and exclusive, characterized by LED headlights in the day. To this was added the Cornering Light function which, depending on the bending angle of the steering wheel, you can make an extra beam in the inner part of the curve to increase the visibility and safety.

Then, in 2016, C3 has launched the new signature bright on multiple levels, a true sign of identification of membership of the Citroën, which lifts the look of the car, and strengthens the perception of the height of the bonnet. The Chevron, with the double-profile chrome-plated, up to LED lights, to emphasize the width of the car. The design of the headlights is rounded and technological. The fog lamps provide a profile colorful for a touch of freshness. Also the rear lights are 3D with a unique identity and technology.

Until you get to the most recent model, SUV the Citroën C5 Aircross from the front, broad and imposing, that fully incorporates the stylistic identity of Citroën, with the “chevron” and the signature bright full LED on two levels, positioned on the grille is imposing. The optical groups above include the daytime running lights and direction indicators, and are related to the “chevron” with a double chrome trim that extends the entire width of the front and emphasizes the width of the vehicle, while the lower ones are inserted into the grille by following the movement, in order to give the New C5 Aircross a modern look and expressive. At the rear, the light clusters in relief, with four modules 3D LED on each side of the vehicle, to create a signature bright, new, technological, and graphics.
