The Citroën Xsara was launched in 1997 and substantially updated and restyled in 2000. The Xsara was offered in three-door coupé, five-door hatchback and estate body styles, with a wide range of petrol and diesel engines to choose from. Which? doesn't provide a test score or reliability rating for older models like this - we recommend choosing a newer alternative.
