"Xsara 2 1.4i LX"

I have had my Xsara since March and I'm thrilled with it. I tried and tested all the cars in this class from other manufacturers and I felt it was the best package.

The spec for a car of this price is excellent - 4 Aibags, ABS with EBD, Remote Locking, Climate Control, Electric windows and full body coloured trim. The steering wheel has controls for the radio casette, but a CD player would be nice as standard, it is an option though.

The seats are very comfortable and is height adjustable, the steering column also adjusts for reach and rake (height). The handling of the car is excellent - it has a 4 wheel steering system which keeps the handling sharp. The car is also fitted with 15" wheels which give phenominal grip, even at high speed. Mine has Citroen alloys fitted which were an extra at £500, although the car looks much better with them.

Performance is not great, the 1.4i only generates 75BHP which isn't great and 0-60 is 12.7 seconds so its not for speed demons, however I have since driven the 1.6 version and it is fantastic, it has an extra 35BHP and 16 valves which gives it far more power. The 1.4 is still very driveable and cruises well on the motorway but mid range acelleration requires plently of revs.

In all, the Xsara is an excellent car to own and drive, whith plenty of engines to choose from, so choose the one which suits you best.

    Hi and welcome to Ciao. A good first opinion which would have benefitted from better layout. The text is much easier on the eye if it is broken up into paragraphs. Paul.

    Welcome to ciao! here is a tip: if you read other people's reviews then they will read yours so get your name around the site! Also put spaces in paragraphs and make more of them as your op had good content but it wasn't really very well set out. Sorry!
