BARGAINS OF THE WEEK: MOTORING

CAR OF THE WEEK

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.
