Car reviews - Citroen - Xsara - VTR coupe
11 Apr 2002
THE overall presentation of the VTR is moderately sporting, with some carbon-fibre trim and a burnished metal gearknob. But the centre verticle console does not tilt in toward the driver at all, as some sporting cars do - BMW for instance - and the whole impression is pretty dark. There are some odd touches too, like the horn on the end of the left-hand indicator stalk, and the power front window switches mounted in the vertical centre console rather than on the doors. The rear windows are manual push-outs. After that it starts getting a bit sparse: no sign of cruise control or any other steering wheel controls, no trip computer, no internal fuel or hatch release, not even variable intermittent wipers. At least the left footrest is a proper one.

Did you know?The central rear view mirror is fitted with two balljoints so that it can be adjusted for height as well as tilt
