Xantia is something of an oddity. A rather forgettable ownership experience awaits those lucky enough not to suffer reliability problems. It does redeem itself with hydropneumatic suspension which gives a superb ride and there’s plenty of space inside. However it doesn’t have the character of Citroëns of old and will require specialist servicing to keep it on the road.
