Citroens are not as quirky as they used to be. Many buyers may be reassured by that fact. So despite Claudia Schiffer's best efforts (and assets), the Citroen Xsara remains a very ordinary-looking hatchback. It is certainly competent, comfortable and efficient without drawing undue attention to itself. Used car buyers like that; they may also like the 1.4 and 1.6 models on offer at London West (0181-987 4000). Priced a few hundred pounds under price guides, these 1997, R-plated examples have a full Citroen-backed Hallmark warranty. Prices start at pounds 6,995.
