The Xsara is the last of the old Citroëns waiting for replacement. Expect the C4 to be very different.

Emissions summary

Xsara is an environmentally friendly model. With an average of 147 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are comparably low for a small family hatchback. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.4-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is impressively frugal, averaging 48 mpg.
