2002 Citroen Xsara VTR 1.6 litre 16v from Australia and New Zealand
An enjoyable small car which is safe and easy to live with
The car has proved very reliable, but little things like the back seat clip and radio aerial have been replaced by the dealer under warranty.
The reason I bought the car was that I found it was so exciting to drive. Now that it has been run in it is a delight. The handling is much better than most cars we test drove before buying it.
The gearing suits the open road, but as I live in the centre of a city and still find it a joy to drive it must be flexible.
I find the styling more pleasing now than when I bought it because I know how practical it is. The interior is very roomy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
