Citroën Dyane 6 Confort- 1978

Citroën Dyane 6 Confort- 1978

Officially announced in 1967, the Dyane was conceived both as a modern version of, and an eventual replacement for, the venerable 2CV. Using the engine, suspension, and chassis of the 2CV, but with a completely new and enlarged body, it truly was a full-blooded member of the A series range. The larger and heavier body was much more modern in appearance, with recessed headlights, integrated fenders, and larger windows. Interior space was also much improved, both in passenger and parcel space. The Dyane may have been the first true hatchback produced since the 1953 Citroën Traction Avant Commerciale, being fitted with a full height, fully opening, glazed tailgate. Although a better vehicle in many ways, it never achieved the popularity of the 2CV; production ceased in 1983, a lifespan thirty years shorter than the 2CV it was meant to replace!
