C'YA WOULDN'T WANNA BE YA

AdvantagesPowerful, corners well, very secure (good alarm and immobiliser)

DisadvantagesFuel consumption, uncomfortable driving position, servicing costs, high insurance

"...and should according to the Citroen literature easily cover 33 miles per gallon around town and 38 on the motorway. In actual fact you can expect with some harsh driving to get in the region of 25-28 miles. When topping speeds over 70 miles per hour you can literally watch the petrol gauge drop. The braking is shocking. Too hard and the car takes on a life of it's own and too little and nothing happens!! It was quite scary at times that a car designed ..." Read review

Saxo VTR pocket rocket that kept stalling!

Advantagesfast, little pocket rocket

Disadvantagesunreliable

"Citroen Saxo VTR, 2001 Y Reg Black This car was bought by my boyfriend in May 2006, with 30,000 miles in practically immaculate condition apart from the fact it was a insurance write off due to theft with no damage. 1. The Interior of the car This paticular saxo had an upgraded interior with a very nice 'velour' type material, which compared to other saxo's I've driven and been in was much more comfortable and looked a lot smarter. It also ..." Read review

Citoren Saxo VTR

AdvantagesSpeed,Comfort,Looks,Drive

DisadvantagesInterior, Fuel economy at high speeds

"I have had a Citroen Saxo VTR now for 9 months, which I have enjoyed every minute of. The car itself on looks, in my view is amazing, the Mark 2 version which I own has more curved headlights than the Mark 1 version with more rectangular shaped lights, personally I prefer the former. The poseidon blue paintwork shines very well in sunlight, and is very eye catching. The interior is a bit tacky and very rattly at times, especially driving along uneven ..." Read review

Saxo VTR - Nippy Little Hatchback

AdvantagesCheap to buy, low insurane, quite nippy

DisadvantagesNot as quick as the VTS, No electric Mirrors

"I have a 1.4 and a VTS model of saxo but did recently testdrive the later 98bhp model The Good Points Its has a brilliant insurance group think its a 6 or 7 compared to the 16v VTS which is a group 14, ideal for younger drivers. More econimical than the VTS so won't be at all bad if they are thrashed. Styling is up to date with a phase lift model after 1999/2000, has the good looking body kit that the sports models have. Nice subtle alloy ..." Read review

Saxo VTR,Very Good,But peddles too close together.

AdvantagesReally good drive, low insurance and servicing, good on petrol.

DisadvantagesUncomfortable to sit in, no electric sunroof.

"My girlfriend has owned a Saxo for the last couple of years. It were bought from new and she got a years free insurance with it! The impressive thing is is that since she bought the car she has not had a single thing go wrong with it. We were also very suprised as to how cheap the insurance were when she did have to insure it. For a 1.4 it is extremely nippy and does excellent on petrol around town. With it being a smaller engine however, it does ..." Read review

FUN.... For a While. A quick honest review

AdvantagesNippy, Looks and fun.

DisadvantagesFuel economy, space and specification

"I have a Saxo VTR, attracted by its looks, and performance for the money I had available. I paid £2000 for mine, a 1998 'r' reg. I was all smiles but it hasn't lasted. Most people who get one are young and want something to look good in and that pulls well. However, the amount of problems and downfalls of this car are numerous. I'd say if your anywhere near 6ft dont bother getting one as you'll struggle for headroom and footspace. The mpg is rediculous, ..." Read review

VTR- good buy

Advantagesgood looking, good price

Disadvantagesnot much room in the back, no electric sunroof.

"I own a VTR which i bought from new,i love it, it's fast, reliable, looks good and can beat most cars away from traffic lights (ofcourse not including the VTS).I was impressed with the standard features for the price, cd player is basic but ok, sunroof is again standard but you get alot of air comming in from the roof which is nice on a hot day, also for a hatchback it is nice to have windows in the back that open slightly, i haven't sat in the back ..."

The Saxo VTR....A 8 Year Test Review!!!!

AdvantagesCheap Insurance Nippy & responsive

DisadvantagesRear legroom is poor

"I bought my current Citroen SAXO VTR back in August 1998 ( S-REG) from new and this is a reflective test i'd like to share on what i think of the car... The 90's was a strange time to look for a sporty supermini,all the major manufactures were fighting to bring out their new models asap but not many was interested in bringing sporty versions out at the launch date.Price was at a premium so Honda and Mitsubishi were out of my touch. Citroen's ..." Read review

A Nice Little Mover

AdvantagesSleek, Sporty looking and Affordable

DisadvantagesHard Ride which feels every bump in the Road

"I bought my Citroen Saxo VTR a year ago brand new and could not be happier with it. It comes with some nice features - sporty seats, white sports dials, alloys, spoiler and just overall looks good. I may be tempting fate but in the year i have had the car i have had no problems with it in the slightest. Its good value for money as the deal i got included a years insurance and also no VAT. I do agree with some of the other reviews though - in ..." Read review

Best fun in a small car

AdvantagesLooks, Handling, Low Insurance, Great Fun

DisadvantagesSeating position, Pedal arrangement, Sunroof

"I bought a Saxo VTR in sept 2003, I paid £4,495 for a V reg with 32,000 miles on the clock which I thought was a bargain. I bought it privately off a 20 yr old girl and it was in great condition. It was black and still had all its standard gear on she had not modified it. Before this I had a 1.1 Fiesta which was a heavy slug which could n't handle corners and as soon as I got in to this car it was awesome. They really are quick for what they ..." Read review

Looks good but not for everyone !!!

AdvantagesLooks great, a nippy little mover

DisadvantagesReplacement parts are expensive as is servicing

"I own a Saxo VTR which was bought new, it looked good then and still looks good 2 years on. It has some nice features including sports seats, white dials, good electric pack, multi player cd, etc (however a lot of these touches are add ons and don't come as standard which can add up). I find it fairly spacious and comforable car, but at just over 5ft is it any wonder. Taller people may certainly feel a bit more cramped and if you have a car full ..." Read review

Speedy, fun, but a little uncomfortable

AdvantagesNicely nippy, good cornering

Disadvantagesplasticky interior, Bit of an uncomfy ride sometimes

"I had always wanted a VTR ever since they came out, I eventually owned a 1.4SX (T reg 1999) but still lusted after the sportier VTR. When I finally got one (53reg 2003) it was very similar in many ways. Although a lot nippier it had more or less the same interior, not necessarily a bad one though. It comes with electric front windows, sunroof, cd player, power steering, but none of the luxuries you might expect on a car towards the top of it's series ..." Read review

EAT MY TYRE TRACKS

AdvantagesSporty, Curvey, Fast, Imbolised

DisadvantagesPetrol Consumption, Little room inside,

"Absolute pleasure to drive, Has the sex appeal of David Beckham and takes corners just as good as him! This car is powered by stallions and could give most cars a knocking off the traffic lights. I purchased my VTR second hand in March this year, and was absolutly delighted from the first time i got behind the wheel. The exterior is well built with neat and tidy curves all round, sporty enough for the boy racers but still adds sophistication for ..." Read review

VTR is Fun and Affordable

AdvantagesPrice, Power, Looks, MPG, Handling, Insurance

DisadvantagesSunroof, Servicing (sort of - read on)

"...its still the typical, smooth Citroen ride quality. It comes as standard with electric windows, Power Steering (light but you can still feel the road), cd player, VTR body kit which does make it stand out from the rest of the range (apart from VTS ofcourse). And sports seats, these seats are really comfortable on both long and short journeys and give good side support to compliment its quick, sharp, handling. Also comes with remote central locking ..."

try it, you might like it!

Advantagesgreat fun, good looks, superb handling

Disadvantagespoor brakes, poor security, horrible fan switch knob!

"...it very affordable too. The Citroen dealer, Wyatt of Poole, were brilliant and very flexible, even though they forgot to put in the tax disc & I had to drive back & get it! Sadly, in spring 2003 some mindless *#$! broke into the car & nicked the stereo making a mess of the driver's door & the rear of the back seat where the power amp was mounted and although this was reasonably well repaired, the car never quite felt the same - the repaired door ..."
