Full review
I’ve written many opinions about cars on here, and although most have
been joint purchases by myself and partner, but this time I’m going to
write about my car; the one I use everyday.

Many of you will have also noticed how picky and critical I am about the
design of cars, so you might be wondering why my own car is something
widely regarded as a reliability nightmare. Read on, and I’ll try to explain.

For those of you that have no idea what a Citroen Xantia Activa is (which,
to be honest, is most people) I’ll fill in some background – without trying to
be too dull! The Citroen Xantia was launched about 10 years ago and is
typically French and quirky – the “Hydro-gas” suspension system is the
most obvious difference to most other cars. Instead of having regular
springs and shock absorbers, the Xantia is equipped with a gas / fluid
based suspension system, which, once pressurised, allows you to float
along on a sort of magic carpet ride – the idea being is that the fluid
suspension can react quicker and absorb more bumps than the
conventional sort.

The difference with the Activa suspension is the addition of a load of
electronic trickery and 4 large hydraulic rams at each corner. Basically, as
you go round a bend a car will lean (or body roll, if you prefer). The Activa
system notices any body roll and adjusts the rams to compensate – so you
go round a bend perfectly level. This means that it can out handle just
about anything on the road. When you couple it with a silky smooth ride
with the cornering ability of a rollercoaster you should (should being the
operative word) have the makings of a great car.

The Activa was introduced in 1996 and mine is a 1999 model, on a T plate.

Driving Experience
If you’ve never driven a Xantia before, they take some getting used to.
The driving position isn’t ideal and the pedals are spaced at an awkward
angle (for my money the brake and accelerator are too close together).
The brakes are also mightily fierce and have all of 2 cm’s travel before
you are having a full ABS moment.

The engine is an old design but fits the car perfectly. It is 2.0 litre, petrol
turbo engine, although the turbo is more about relaxed cruising than out
and out performance. It does have the disadvantage that the mechanicals
are eerily quiet at speed and you need to keep one eye on the speedo to
avoiding a driving ban.

The gear box isn’t the last word in refinement either – 1st gear is very low
(meaning you have to change up quickly) and the overall action isn’t what
could be described a slick. Fast changes into 3rd gear are normally met
with a ‘crunch’ and reverse can be hard to find when parked.

The complex suspension is both wonderful and annoying. Before setting off
for the first time you have to wait for the STOP lights to go out while the
system is pressuring. This can take about a minute and you can feel the
car rising off the ground into its normal driving position. There is a button
on the dash board to alter how firmly you want it set, but to be honest
there isn’t much difference between them.

Out on the road, it all becomes worth it – speed bumps are soaked up
with little fuss and motorway driving is relaxed. On fast country lanes and
traffic islands the Activa suspension really starts to shine – turn quickly
and the car just ploughs round the bend. Because there’s no body roll,
you won’t get much of a warning before it runs out of grip (and dumps you
in the nearest hedge) so it’s best to temper your enthusiasm until you and
vehicle are intimately acquainted. I defy anyone to drive this car without
having a fixed grin on their face.

Comfort, Looks and Design
From the outside, it just looks like any normal Xantia. Being the later
model it has a revised front end which looks slightly less pretty than the
original version, but it’s all pretty mundane. The only way to tell an Activa
from any regular Xantia is a discrete badge on the front wing, a boot
spoiler and slightly fatter tyres.

Inside, there’s a fair amount of toys and it all seems well put together.
There all the electric windows and mirrors you could want, together with
an electric driver’s seat. Though finding the correct position takes a lot of
adjustment and because there’s no memory feature anyone who drives
the car is under pain of death not to adjust the seat!

You also get a decent amount of space and wide opening doors. There’s
even a sun blind built into the rear window. Boot space is good, but the
spoiler makes it a heavy old thing to open. The rain sensitive wipers are
frustrating in drizzle (as they don’t notice it), but are great when
encountering spray on a motorway.

Upfront there are a couple of trays to put odds and ends in as well as
covered door pockets (which are great for leaving things out of sight).
Everything was designed exactly the wrong size to hold an open can of
coke – so they must balanced between your legs! The glove box is very
small and holds roughly the same amount of junk as a flower pot.

You also get a traffic master system (which I don’t think is partially helpful)
and very cold air conditioning. The air con isn’t that great to use and the
slider controls look dated. There’s a silly automatic temperature and fan
control system which is infuriating. A millimetre of difference can change
it between a dessert heat or an artic blast. The fans speeds can be set on
“Auto” (for Auto, read: whatever it feels like), or “Max” (full blast);
everything in between makes no difference what-so-ever.

As a nod towards safety you get his and hers airbags as well as side ones
in your seats. You also get standard ABS brakes. It’s an old design, so I
wouldn’t think it’ll hold up all that well in a fight with a tree – so it’s best to
drive with caution.

I’m frantically holding onto some wood as I write this in case I jinx it; but
so far it’s been rock steady. I bought the car with 60k on the clock from a
Citroen specialist. All Xantia require a full overhaul of the suspension at
60,000 so make sure it’s been done otherwise you’ll have a big bill.

The interior is free from squeaks and rattles, but the suspension has a
habit of groaning in cold weather. There’s also a tendency to over inflate
the back end, which comes down with a bit of a thump after a couple of
minutes driving.

It returns about 350 miles on a full tank (60 litres) of unleaded, which is
better than my previous 2.0 Non-Citroen auto, but not very good by today’s

Insurance is pricey, being a group 15 – most companies will laugh at you
if you are under 25. I pay £600 per year (25 with 8 years no claims), but
I did have quotes of over £2,000.

Summary (and why I won’t part with it)
Even though the car has so many areas which annoy the hell out of me,
I wouldn’t choose anything else for my daily transport. The fact it looks
like a regular car is great – you simply drive with the knowledge that you
can show a clean pair of heels to any boy racer that pushes their look.
But it’s more than that, it’s the knowledge that I have got something which
is so different from everything else on the road, but without making sports
car like compromises.

If you decide to buy one, don’t moan at me if breaks down all the time
and it costs you thousands in repair bills. Find a good one and be lucky!

If there’s another car out there which delivers so many smiles per mile,
I’ve yet to drive it.

As i was searching through some old car magazines today i came across a 2005 Autocar with an Activa review in the back. If you know the Autocar magazine you will know the 'caned but able' (its called something else now) section on the back page.

This is the review: (print might be a bit small, ill try to scan it bigger)

Overall a good review, the 'one we found' sounds great!

That is quite an eye-opener. Surprising how poor the Saabs and Volvos are in comparison. Not to mention the Lexus way down the bottom there.

That's very interesting, and something which I will use to boast about! But there doesn't seem to be much consistency down the list. For example, I'd be surprised if a Berlingo managed 74 when a Xsara VTS only did 65!

Interesting it's the oldest car on the list too and new doesn't necessarily
mean better as some of the lower cars on the list show!

why don't tabs work on this forum!? :(

Nice to see the Activa in the above road test: N439 XCF has got tax until 04.2010 :D

Was XCF cars owned by Citroen at the time? OUr 2.1TD Xm bears an XCF reg, that was a Citroen car from new for the first couple of years.

Our white Xm has CMO, another reg used for Citroens own cars at the time i believe.

Some very good reviews there, ill have to have a read through them all one day :)
