2001 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6i 8v from UK and Ireland
A little pocket rocket that will surprise bigger fish
None as yet because I collect the car in 3 days.
When I test drove the VTR it seemed quite rapid but I didn't really get the chance to open it up.
The handling was superb, there was no body roll at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I assume you will be updating this review? Oterwise how can you possibly comment on the reliability and running costs of the car?!

My husband bought me a new VTR for Christmas only because he wanted it!! However, I've taken it under my wing and I love it. It's fast, responsive and although I'm no spring chicken, when I get behind the wheel, I feel like a born-again teenager! The only downside I've come across is the spongy brakes but these seem to have settled down and now I have total confidence in the little devil. GH.

I too found the brakes a bit spongy when cold, but when warmed up they became really responsive. So much so that my Dad had a drive and nearly put me through the windscreen by mistake. When driven very hard they never faded once.

Same person that wrote the review- I've now had the car for 2 weeks and I love it to bits! The handling is superb and every time I put my foot down, a great big grin forms on my face! I find the manufacturer's 0-60 MPH time a little inaccurate. I believe it's quicker, I've sped away from many a BMW and Mercedes! Top little motor!
