29 September 1988 saw the announcement of Activa at the Paris Motor Show.
The Activa programme saw the development of four wheel drive and four wheel steer allied to an active suspension system all housed in an extremely elegant and aerodynamic body.

Much of the suspension technology would appear the following year in the Hydractive-equipped XM: - the marriage of Citroën’s tried and trusty high pressure hydraulics with state of the art electronics to offer an unrivalled combination of comfort, safety, road holding and handling.


The Activa was built as a test bed for current and upcoming features to be found on family cars of the future. The suicide doors and partially-fixed windows were mainly only found on concept cars. However, the Activa's hydropneumatic suspension was used on various production cars. Inside, a heads-up display system projected vital driver information on the windshield, a feature found in Citroen's XM production car. The Activa also incorporated four-wheel-steering, four-wheel-drive, anti-lock braking, and traction control for wheel spin. The unique wheels were designed by Citroen. With an extensive use of glass overlapping the support pillars, minus the roof, and four individual seats, the Activa was also characterized by a rectangular steering wheel and a console-mounted flat control device acting as the gear shift lever.

В журнале «За рулем» № 2 за 1989 год об этом прототипе написано: «У «Ситроена-актива» — бесстоечный кузов, с распашными дверями. Разумеется, обеспечить несущему кузову достаточно высокую жесткость на скручивание — непростая инженерная задача. Для контроля и изменения, в зависимости от внешних условий, характеристик подвески колес, усилителя руля, тормозов в «Активе» применены гидравлические исполнительные механизмы и электронные управляющие устройства. Так, усилитель руля в зависимости от скорости движения по команде бортовой ЭВМ изменяет прилагаемое к управляемым колесам исполнительное усилие. Рулевое же колесо — не более чем командный орган, требующий малого угла поворота (60° в каждую сторону).» От себя хочу заметить, что автомобиль построен по популярной в то время колесной схеме 4x4x4, что значит что все колеса не только ведущие, но и управляемые.
Также по материалам журнала «За рулем»: Двигатель шестицилиндровый с рабочим объемом 2849 м³, мощностью 220 л. с. Коэффициент аэродинамического сопротивления автомобиля (Cx) равен 0,25. Максимальная скорость 250 км/ч.
