Replacing the BX, the Citroën Xantia made its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show on 4 March 1993. 30 years later, the beautiful Citroën is celebrating its birthday, the occasion to come back to this car that will count in the history of the brand. To celebrate this anniversary, the Citroën Conservatoire is organising an exceptional programme on 4 March.
In fact, this Saturday, 4 March, the Conservatory will open its doors at 13.30 with the following programme:
13.30 to 18.00: free visit to the collections/exhibition of cars by the Xantia Activa Club outside.
14.30 to 16.00: Conference debate on Xantia in the presence of three alumni of the Xantia programme.
Admission is fixed at 11e, reduced at 6€ for 7-17 year olds, students, Stellantis Group staff, children under six free.
So it was 30 years ago that the Xantia was launched to replace the famous BX. The sharp lines of the BX were contrasted by the Xantia's soft but taut lines, which gave it a great deal of elegance. With its two-and-a-half volume shape, the Xantia concealed a tailgate behind a false boot that revealed a huge 480-litre boot.
A visit to the conservatory will allow you to discover many Xantias, but above all to learn about the history of the car thanks to the members of the Xantia programme, who will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about this beautiful Citroën. An unmissable event for lovers of the brand and of the Xantia in particular.
