After recently parting company with my Saxo VTR after well over 3 years I thought it appropriate to write a full and comprehensive review of the car and its performance. The original reason for purchase? At the time I had been on the lookout for a hatchback that looked good and also drove with...

“Citoren Saxo VTR”

Speed,Comfort,Looks,Drive

Interior, 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...

Uncomfortable to sit in, no electric sunroof.

Cheap to buy, low insurane, quite nippy

Not 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...

Nippy, Looks and fun.

Fuel 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...

“Best fun in a small car”

published 16/07/2004

Looks, Handling, Low Insurance, Great Fun

Seating 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...

“A Nice Little Mover”

published 05/10/2004

Sleek, Sporty looking and Affordable

Hard 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...

Rear 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...

Looks great, a nippy little mover

Replacement 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...

I think the car is really good, not too expensive on insurance for a new driver either mine is around £900 which is good for under 21 that has just passed their test. the CD player in the car is basic but that can easily be replaced, the car...

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...
