    Default Seeking Diesel Wagon

    Greetings from Guam. I'm planning a long Aussie road trip and am looking for a diesel wagon. I've used Peugeot and Citroen diesel wagons before in Europe for trips and want to find out what's aviaalble in Australia. My previous Aussie road trip was with a thirsty Ford Falcon wagon. Did Citroen sell the early-1990's BX wagon diesel in Australia?

    Hi Skippy,

    As Citroen never sold any diesels officially in Oz (until the Xantia), diesel BXs are something between hen's teeth and rocking horse poo around here! I think there is one wagon in Wollongong.

    There were diesel Pug 505 sedans, but oddly I don't think I've ever seen a 505 diesel wagon, although I could be wrong there. There are 405 diesel wagons, but you will be paying a premium for one of them, I suspect.

    Youl'd be better off getting a cheap petrol 505 or BX wagon - heaps better than any Falcodore.

    Hi Skip
    BX wagons were only officially imported for the 1989 model year and all were petrol powered. Dont think there were a huge number sold unfortunately. Diesel BX's are all private imports. As far as I know there is one turbo diesel hatch in Sydney somewhere and my series 1 NA diesel wagon down here in the soggy Illawarra. You have the right track though, makes a brilliant touring car with no worries about buying dodgy fuel in the boonies or on trips between capital cities, at least on the east coast.
    There were a few 405 diesels brought out but they seem to be pretty rare on the market.
