Citroen Saxo History
The Mark 1 Citroen Saxo (1996-99) had pretty basic equipment in the lower models, but as you went up towards the VTR version there were some really good features available. The 1.1L engine was very popular, as the 1.0 seemed to lack power, with the sportier versions coming in 16 valve and smart looking body kit. There were two limited edition versions built in the UK under the Mark 1: Tour de Corse and the San Remo.
The Mark 2 Saxo (2000-03) gave the vehicle a new look which mainly Affected the exterior of the car, with the interior staying much the same. The main exterior parts that were affected were the grille, headlights and bonnet. This car ceased production in 2003 and was known for its performance problems. The Peugeot 106 sister car, also ceased production the same year and the Saxo was replaced with the C2.
The available engines for this vehicle were: 1.0, 1.1, 1.4 and 1.6L petrol and there is a 1.5 diesel version. The 1.5 diesel version is the best economically, offering up to 54mpg and the best petrol version is the 1.1 with 46mpg. Always check the age, fuel type and engine size when considering fuel economy.
