CITROEN VISA GTI: THE GTI OF DOUBLE CHEVRON
In 1984 the GTi variant of the small Visa changed the rules at Citroen
Ever since it was launched in 1978, the Citroen Visa was not exactly the kind of car that would be called "performance", but in 1984 things changed.
That year the French company made a GTi version of it to compete with the famous Volkswagen Golf and Peugeot 205 until 1988 when Citroen withdrew Visa from the market.
Its design featured the new aerodynamic appendices, the new alloy wheels and new split front headlights. The car had a four-cylinder XU5 1.6 engine managed by a five-speed manual gearbox and combined with rear-wheel drive.
With a power of 105 hp with 130 Nm of torque, the engine pushed the GTi up to the maximum speed of 188 km / h with acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 9.1 seconds.
