Car reviews - Citroen - Xsara - VTR coupe
11 Apr 2002
THE Xsara Coupe places its two major dials in a hooded recess in the dash, with the speedometer on the left and the tachometer on the right. As with any would-be sporting model, the dials are white and the needles are red. The tripmeter and odometer are digital and placed within the speedo dial, while the oil pressure gauge is within the tacho. The water temperature gauge sits at the bottom left of the recess and the fuel gauge at bottom right. The indicator arrows sit at top dead centre and, unusually, are backlit outlines rather than fully lit-up when activated. The recess is surrounded by hard, black plastic which houses the joystick-type power mirror adjustment on the right and instrument illumination adjustment on the left.
