Higher in the range than the BX, in 1993 the Xantia adopts the fashionable Bertone styling. Inspired by his designs for the XM, he gives it more fluid compact lines, for an innovative hatchback and semi volume.
Immediately welcomed for its comfort and quality of finish, it is also distinguished for its roadholding, thanks to the hydropneumatic suspension of the BX, and the new hydractive technology of the large XM (according to versions).
These aesthetic and technical qualities provide it with a long career to 2001. Before being replaced by the first C5, it comes in several variants. The Activa is notable for its active anti-roll system. The Diesel HDi versions are the first of the name for Citroën. The elegant station-wagon is built by Heuliez.
