About Oltcit

The Oltcit (IPA: /olt.'sit/) is a Romanian car developed in co-operation with Citroën of France in the 1980s. It is a small three-door hatchback, based on the Citroën Prototype Y and built in Craiova at the Automobile Craiova plant. This vehicle was studied by Citroën to replace the Ami before Peugeot took the decision to produce the Citroën Visa derived from the 104. The Oltcit was sold between 1978 and 1996, and was also sold in Western Europe badged as the Citroën Axel.

The car's name comes from the region of Oltenia in Romania, with 'cit' being an abbreviation of Citroën. The Oltcit logo is also similar to that of Citroën, but only features one chevron, as opposed to the two found on Citroën's logo, and the letter 'O'.

Tips and tricks for lowering car insurance costs in Great Britain

If you’re trying to finesse the lowest price of car insurance in Great Britain, there are a few things to watch out for. Car insurance marketing is clever. Its aim is to make you feel you’re getting the best deal but to maximise the insurer’s profit at the same time.

Get a ‘new’ quote from your existing insurer

Often applying to your existing insurer as a new customer produces a cheaper price than its renewal quote. Insurers put out more competitive prices to attract new customers so simply start again and you could be better off.
