The Citroen Xantia range was introduced in the UK in May 1993 as a five-door Hatchback with a 2.0 litre petrol engine. 1.6 and 1.8 litre petrol engines, and 1.9 litre turbo and non-turbo-diesel engines were introduced in July of the same year. All petrol engines are fitted with a catalytic converter as standard. A driver’s airbag and seat belt tensioners were added in June 1994. The 8-valve versions of the 1.8 and 2.0 litre engine were superseded by 16-valve versions in May 1995 (on manual transmission models only – the 2.0 litre 8-valve unit was retained for automatic transmission models). The Estate variant was added to the range in October 1995.

In January 1998, the range received a minor facelift, involving a new bonnet with integral grille, body-colour bumpers, strengthened bodyshell and wider track. A new automatic transmission with electronic control became available with certain ongines in the facelifted range.

All engines are derived from the well-proven XU and XUD series of engines, which have appeared in many Peugeot and Gitro&n vehicles. The engine is of four-cylinder overhead camshaft design, mounted transversely and inclined to the rear, with the transmission mounted on the left-hand side. All models have a five-speed manual transmission; the 1.8 and 2.0 litre petrol models and certain 1.9 litre diesel models also being offered with the option of a four-speed automatic transmission.

All models are fitted with the hydropneumatic suspension system which is self-levelling, the ride height being maintained automatically over all road conditions.

A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the Xantia range to suit most tastes, including central locking, electric windows, an electric sunroof, and air bags. An anti-lock braking system and air conditioning system are available as options on certain models.

Provided that regular servicing is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, the Xantia should prove reliable and very economical. The engine compartment is well-designed, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.
