Citroen Saxo VTS vs Peugeot 206 RC Racing
All engines were from the PSA TU engine series that powered the Peugeot 205
from 1988 and the Citroën AX, and had their roots before that with the OHC
PSA X engine various other PSA cars used, such as the Citroën Visa,
Peugeot 104 and early Peugeot 205. The range included five petrol engines
and one diesel engine, all naturally aspirated.
Although the quoted power outputs are low in comparison to modern small
hatchbacks, or even to other hatchbacks of the time, the kerb weight was
generally very low, with even the range-topping VTS having a kerb weight of
just 965 kg (2,127 lb), with other smaller engine models (except the
diesel) being around 100 kg lighter than this. This meant a high
power-to-weight ratio which meant for decent acceleration and made the car
suitable for city driving. Aside from the VTS which had 16 valves, all
engines were the older SOHC units which meant low MPG figures. Even the
popular 1.1 engine would struggle to achieve more than 35-40mpg in town
when driven carefully.
The early 1.0 was quite under-powered with the 1.1 being considered much
better, since it was nearly 200 cc larger and had roughly 30% more torque.
There were three sport models of the Saxo:
The Westcoast, later replaced by the Furio which featured a 1.4I 8V 55 kW
(75PS/75BHP) engine with a top speed of 175 km/h (109 mph), and a 0-62.5
mph (0--100 km/h) time of 11.2 seconds.
The VTR MK1 (1997--1999) featured a 1.6I 8V 66 kW (90PS/89BHP) engine with
a top speed of 187 km/h (116 mph) and a 0-62.5 mph (0--100 km/h) time of
10.0 seconds. The VTR MK2 (1999--2003) featured a 1.6I 8V 72 kW
(98PS/97BHP) engine with a top speed of 193 km/h (120 mph) and a 0-62.5 mph
(0--100 km/h) time of 9.4 seconds.
The VTS 16V featured a 1.6I 88 kW (120PS/118BHP) engine with a top speed of
205 km/h (127 mph), and a 0-60 mph time of 7.8 seconds. The VTS MK1
(1997--1999) and MK2 (1999--2003) shared the same performance.
These models included 247 mm (9.7 in) vented front brake discs, with the
VTR and VTS also having rear brake discs (solid 247 mm (9.7 in) discs).
Also, a different style of control arms and struts was used for the
suspension. The VTS had a 22 mm (0.9 in) master brake cylinder, and the VTR
and Westcoast/Furio had a 19 mm (0.7 in). The VTS had a 19 mm (0.7 in)
front anti-roll bar and 22 mm (0.9 in) rear anti-roll bar, while the VTR
and Westcoast/Furio had a 19 mm (0.7 in) front and 21 mm (0.8 in) or
sometimes 19 mm (0.7 in) rear anti-roll bar.
In addition, all the sports models featured a unique bodykit to the other
models, commonly known as the "VT" bodykit.
In 1997 the Saxo's 3 Speed Automatic Gearbox was combined with the 1.6i 8V
88 kW (90PS/89BHP) engine which was available on the Saxo SX and VSX. Then,
in late 1997, the 1.6i automatic was replaced with a 1.4i 55 kW
(75PS/74BHP) engine. The 1.6i was more powerful with a top speed of 176
km/h (109MPH) compared with the 1.4's top speed of 103 mph (166 km/h).
Citroën carried on using the 1.4i engine on the Facelift Saxo Automatic in
1999. Due to the C3 having a 1.4i Automatic Gear Box the Saxo Automatic
came to an end in March 2002, whilst the manual models were still sold
right up to the end of 2003.

a deformable barrier. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier
impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is
