CitroŽn Dyane/Acadiane 1967-1987

The CitroŽn Dyane was a small automobile produced by the French manufacturer CitroŽn, based on the famous CitroŽn 2CV. It was produced from 1967 to 1983.

The Dyane was CitroŽn's answer to the increasingly popular Renault 4, which after its introduction in 1961 had caused a decline in 2CV sales. Like the R4, the Dyane was designed from the outset as a hatchback with some other styling differences, such as conventional round headlamps set into the front wings with a squared enjoliveur - as opposed to the old-fashioned separate units found on the 2CV - and chromed wheel embellishers as standard.

As with the 2CV, the engine was air-cooled though with a slightly larger displacement of 435 cc; later versions gained the 602 cc engine, with higher compression pistons and forced induction from the engine fan giving more power than the 2CV. It is often believed that the Dyane was intended to replace the 2CV, but it was pitched higher in the CitroŽn range - between the 2CV and the Ami - and attracted a different clientele seeking the versatility offered by the Dyane's hatchback.

1.4 million Dyanes were produced between 1967 and 1983. CitroŽn also made a van based on the Dyane: the Acadiane.

The CitroŽn Acadiane is a small commercial vehicle derived from the Dyane and only available in left-hand drive, produced from 1977 to 1987. Production totalled 253,393. The Visa-based C15 van eventually replaced the Acadiane.

Citroen had already used the prefix AK for its light commercials, so it was an obvious pun to name the AK Dyane "Acadiane" (similar pronunciation in French). There was no connection beyond the pun with the French-speaking region of Louisiana that is home to Cajun (Acadiane) cooking.

The Acadiane differed from the Dyane on which it was based in having heavier-duty suspension, a slightly altered chassis and a rear-brake limiter whose action was dependent on the load.

The Acadiane was also fitted with wind-down windows in the driver's and passenger's doors. The Dyane car had horizontally-sliding windows.

The payload was approximately 500 kg (1,100 lb), but handling was impaired when fully loaded.

The Acadiane was available in commercial (two-seater) form or as a "Mixte", with sliding rear windows and a removable rear bench seat. Citroen and many other manufacturers continue to this day (Berlingo et al.) with the option of rear seats in a vehicle clearly designed as a commercial. The Mixte version also had a passenger sun visor, missing in the more basic commercial version. In line with many Citroen light commercials, the roof of the rear bodywork was corrugated to add extra rigidity at little cost.

The Acadiane cruised on the flat comfortably and economically at 55 mph (89 km/h).

Top gear in the four-speed box was usually referred to as overdrive. This had been so since the earliest days of the 2CV. In most circumstances it was best used as such. Progress could be maintained in top, but further acceleration was unlikely. As the motor thrived on revs, third made a perfectly good gear to get up to 80 km/h (50 mph).
