I have owned by VTR since April 2001. At first I was attracted to a new model with 1 years free insurance, but after discovering that I didn't qualify for it as I had more than 2 claims in the last 3 years, decided that it would be more worthwhile to purchase a nearly new model. I opted for an X registered model from November 2000, for only £7995, with 1600 miles on the clock. It looked sexy (I like my cars!) and was Black. I'd always wanted a black car! The level of service received from the dealership was poor to say the least. I personally paid by Switch. What I wasn't aware of was that Citroen had taken three amounts of £7995 from my ...

I owned my 1998 Red Saxo VTR for about 2 years. All in all it was a very good car, do you buy one? It depends...read on! With a 1.6 litre 8 valve engine the car is far from slow. With 98bhp its not lacking in power, with most of it available in low revs. As with alot of French cars of this age, you do get the usual rattling from various places in the car, ,but with a bit of investigation work they're normally easy to elliminate. The front and rear bumpers have clips which can sometimes break, but again, easy enough to replace. The interior can seem quite empty when you first sit in the,car and is generally quite basic. A sun roof is ... Read the complete review

Ok, so i don't have a saxo, and i don't want one. However, my sister has one and i have spent a lot of time driving it. It's a 98 VTR, and quite a tidy car. It handles well though the corners and body roll is down to a minimum. Running costs aren't too bad, up around 35 miles per gallon, but for a modern car you'd expect perhaps a little more. However, it's a bit limp when it comes to power. Firstly, it's only 87bhp which for a 1.6 is frankly lame. Secondly, it weighs quite literally a ton, and the car feels like it when accelerating. It's also starting to rust a bit, especially in under the arches. For a car ... Read the complete review

As a twenty-something at the time, buying my Saxo VTR was my first foray into the world of the 'hot hatch'. That said, by the time I reached my thirties I had graduated to 200bhp+ beasts and, in hindsight, can only truthfully describe my trusty Saxo as 'warm' rather than 'hot'. But I've got fond memories of the little Citroen, and it was probably an essential stepping stone to more powerful cars. I decided to go for the 8 valve VTR over the 16 valve VTS, mainly to keep the insurance costs down; group 7 versus group 14. Both engines are 1.6 litres, the VTR generating 90bhp with the VTS weighing in at 120bhp. Performance figures vary depending on where you look, ... Read the complete review

I bought one of these in 2005 to see me through my Uni days, and I absolutely loved it! Unfortunately, the Saxo VTR's and VTS' seem to have become the weapon of choice for many a street cruising chav, but there is a good reason for that in that they are brilliant, and are so much fun to drive. The VTR model comes with a mere 97bhp, but because of the fact that the car is so light and low to the ground it feels like a lot more. If you throw the car into the corners it sticks like glue and almost feels like you're driving a go kart, making it great fun to drive. On the inside the Saxo is pretty standard. It comes with electric window, a CD ... Read the complete review
