design & reality
|On the left side a nice drawing, there is a sharp edge on the back side ...||... which is not there at the real car!
In this case the Xsara Coupé 3-door
the introduction of the
|The Xsara was introduced on the German Car
Exhibition IAA '97 in Frankfurt september 1997.
Claudia Schiffer (who is German) was hired to play in a promotional film for the Xsara. Perhaps Citroën asked her because both Claudia and the Xsara have plenty of well filled round forms!
|Inside the exhibition buildings this Xsara was present in a nice metallic red color|
Introduced: September 1997
In this 5 doors version this Xsara is meant to compete with the German Gold and Astra cars. Available are the Xsara 1.6i and 1.8i, both of which feature the familiar XU engines producing 90bhp and 103bhp respectively. Also a 1.4i Diesel is part of Citroën's engine range, and the output is 75bhp.
Introduced: in September 1997
But for sale from March 1998
|Xsara break (estate)
Introduced: March 1998
Now the ZX break gets replaced by this middle class car with much space for luggage in the back.
this is the fastest version, meant for racing/rallying, starting in the 1998 season, but no more rally-raids!
|... and the kitcar was shown on the Paris Motor Show from 1-11 October 1998.|
Introduced: October 1998
At right an image of the car before it was made public: this Xsara Minivan was presented at the 1998 Paris Motor Show. The special name is: Xsara Picasso. The car will be in the showroom in the 2nd half of 1999. Below some other previous espionage images.
|The Xsara Picasso in real, in Paris also... ...what color shall we order? Well, we've got a year to think about and save money!|
This nice open version was designed bij Matthijs de Groot from The Netherlands. For more information: Matthijs' CARSITE
the in Japan
|Next to a red Xsara a Japanese girl in a short skirt and a red jacket, what is tempting you most, the car or the girl...|
|... the choice can be made more difficult if you see al those nice girls, but there are more Xsara's too! All on the Citroën stand on the 32nd Tokyo Motor Show 1997.|
|What type the red Xsara is you cannot see on the pictures, but this "golden" car is the Xsara Coupé 3-doors|
|In the best tradition of the last years Citroën had also a letter-logo designed for the Xsara.|
|The letters are made now 3 dimensional and looks like they are already glued on the car. But the colors don't match yet.|
|Some designers think that they can do it better, and in some countries no dots on the "E" are possible...|
