Compare with other cars in the Super Mini category

The Saxo is an older design which (in september 2000) is no longer being developed by Citroen, with a new model about a year away. The performance is at the bottom end of the cars under test. The child restraint performance was better than for a number of newer cars tested in this phase of Euro NCAP.
