1997 Citroen XsaraReview

Handling — It's a great car with a good handling. Build quality is average and a VW Golf is better. But the 2.0 liters 167 hp is very performant. Ho I forgot. The cost of ownership is very low. Mine have 145000 km now!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 2.0 l 167 ch

Cons: Low cost of ownership
