    Looks like a Ford Puma after colliding with a surfboard rack.The stated purpose of the Citroen Oli is to learn more about different forms of composite for body panels and it may work well enough for that.It may also be a few steps more bizarre than is absolutely necessary so we don't get too great a shock when a milder version appears in the showrooms.

    The Aztek is an automotive masterpiece compared to that.

    The Citroen - difficult to immagine it meeting pedestrian collision safety requirements with the 90 degree between windscreen and roof ...

    The Multipla - had one as a rental once - I picked it up in a poorly lit parkhouse and could not find the switch for adjusting the outside mirrors. And they needed adjustment. I guess I looked for 10 minutes or so. Until I found it. Overhead, integrated in the roof liner. Apart from that it had a few good sides - it could sit 6 as it has a bench in the front and one in the rear. Surprisingly good space for a small car. Main disadvantage I found - the upper lights illuminate the engine hood and thus blind the driver / reduce night vision.

    Sorry, I was thinking of the more recent Edsel.

    The Aztek was one of the first "crossover" SUVs--a hatchback on a production car chassis, with five seats and a camping option. Crazy idea--no wonder it never caught on.
