I had a CXie Familiale back in the eighties. Can't say it was fatiguing
save for being stuffed with innumerable children. We used to call it the
"camel" for the way it used to sit down at switch off. It had a huge
(2.5l) four banger. Primitive, you might say, but it was very quiet and
chewed up those Swiss and French motorways at a comfortable (albeit
illegal) 180 - 200 kph for hour after hour.
Certainly my second favourite car.
