“ROCKY”

published 06/06/2013

Nippy little car with plenty of room

Very 'plastic' feel to some parts

My Saxo VTS is an R reg and I bought it second hand when it had done 72000 miles. I paid around £2600 mark and it was definitely one of the "boy-racer" cars of the day. Mine is a lovely sought-after green colour.(note : there isn't just one shade of this 'green' I found out when I wanted a tin of...

The Citroen Saxo VTS is a great little car. Small and compact but with performance and handling you will miss when you move on from them! I had a Citroen Saxo 1.1i for 2 years, another great little run around, before I upgraded to the Saxo VTS. Although the 1.1i was pokey and responsive for its...

“A sporty little number”

Handling, sexy looks, ample power

citreon dealers and servicing

I bought this car in 1998 with the advantage of 2 years free insurance. I am a high mileage user and the car is very expensive to service compared to other manufacturer dealers. Minor services cost around £135 major closer to £200. The VTR handles superbly unlike some people views that have...

Any car produced by Citreon is going to cause you problems, let me tell you. Whether its an image thing or simply the build/ride quality of your machine, Citreon dont cut the mustard. That is of course, apart from the wonderful Saxo VTS. It is a little box of tricks on 4 wheels. It has a 1.8i...

I love this car, with 120bhp (22mph more than the newer VTR;s) you wouldn't think it would be too much faster or worthwhile buying, but believe me IT IS! The only other car i had before my VTS is, yes, you guessed it, a VTR! As soon as i drove a VTS, i had to buy it because it was just such a...

I've just bought a 2nd hand VTS, S plate, only 14000 miles, for £6900. Going from a 1.2 Nova to a 1.6i 16v with 120bhp took a bit of getting used to, but I am now having so much fun. The 2nd gear goes on upto 7500rpm, to a speed of 65mph, getting you to 60 in 7.7 secs. This car just loves being...

OK - so whether you're buying a Saxo new or used you're going to get a pretty goo deal. They are affordable little cars with hot hatch credentials. Don't make the same mistake I did though. 2 months after buying the Saxo VTR I drove my mate's VTS ..... needless to say the VTR has felt...

Stunning looks, torquey motor, superb handling.....these are just a few of what makes the VTR one of the best affordable cars on the road today. 4 years running the best selling hatchback and it is no surprise why. I have had my VTR for just over a year and I would not trade it in for anything...

After being car-less for a good 3 years now, i decided to invest in a hot hatch. Being a few on the market i had to narrow it down to a couple. The Zetec-s Fiesta from Ford, The Peugeot 206 GTI and the Citroen Saxos VTR & VTS. Once i drove the VTS (1.6ltr, 16 valve,120bhp) i fell for it first...
