The Citroën Xsara is a small family car produced by French automaker Citroën from 1997 to 2006.
The Xsara was a development of the Citroën ZX and Peugeot 306, which shared a platform and running gear.
It came in three and five-door hatchback and five-door estate body styles; the estate was marketed as the Break and the three-door as the Coupé. The styling shared cues with the larger Bertone designed Xantia, but was regarded as bland by the motoring press. The straight-4 engine range includes 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrol engines as well as 1.6, 1.9 and 2.0-litre turbodiesels, and regular diesels, and in some countries, a 1.5-litre TUD diesel engine.
The Xsara was 1998 Semperit Irish Car of the Year in Ireland.
