Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Only scored two stars in the Euro NCAP tests. A driver's airbag was fitted from 1994 onwards and a passenger airbag was optional. ABS was standard fit on higher spec models whilst most had deadlocks and a keypad immobiliser. Later models also had an alarm.

The Xantia hatchback offers a decent boot with scope to carry larger items by lowering the rear seatbacks. A very roomy estate version is also available for those who need more carrying space.
