Yes, You can by a new Citroën in the United States

Notice I did not say you should, but you can -- In fact, you can buy several different models.

Today, no car maker is an island. Parts come from common suppliers, engines are developed by joint ventures, and cars are built on other manufacturer’s productions lines.

This article now has a Part 2. See more cars and updates in this article.

Citroën, Europe's 2nd largest car manufacture, is no exception to such practices. It is for this reason that you can buy several current Citroën models today in the US. Of course, you still can't go to a Citroën dealer in the US, and the car you buy won't have Citroën badging, but with the exception of some trim pieces, and a very few other changes, it will be identical to Citroën models sold in Europe.
