Looks are purely subjective.

It does seem Citroen have gone back to the Citroen of old in recent years, designs which are different and quirky without being completely stupid.

The Saxo VTS is still an amazing car now, they are just immense when you put your foot down. With that the C2 is much more refined but a bit slower, but that is debatable as the C2 turns better and has more torque low down.

My 1.6 Si used to do that as well? :?

Must admit the VTS looks like a nice car and probably drives quite well. Just a shame that saxos have too much chav factor about them. Which wouldn't stop me getting one, I just don't wouldn't want one anyway. :lol:

Quite impressive though, I could never really bare putting my 1.4 over 5000rpm for fear it might blow up, It probably only did like 45 at that point as well :doh:
