    Its an interesting one....but Im sure we can work it out using some simple deduction...

    1...Is the photo from "abroad"...driver taking shots of dog in back seats not common...so I reckon she is left wheel drive?

    2...Looks like a basic model....poor construction...pillar plastic to roof liner is poor...so is the black window seal....

    3...This poor quality construction should lead us to either a Korean or american made car...?

    4..rear door may not be a door...but what kind of a freak would have a big door like that and buy a hatch...just doesn't make sense... but considering the "shocking" interior decor anything is possible...

    5...Whoever bought this car has no taste and would easily be impressed by the quality of a ...cheap hyndai excel..seriously, vinyl backs and piping faded away with the eighties...

    So...to conclude...its cheap and its nasty, I m going for 1997 built...

    ...somebody else can work out what the bloody thing is....grab handles look familiar and the clothes hook leads us back to culture and italy but i was away from the continent during the 90s so am not certain...

    The adjustable headrest angle leads me to believe that its European.

    Poor quality construction (as Dino said) pretty much rules out everything apart from French and Italian cars.

    I'd say it's a Citroen Xsara just by going on the shape of the front seats/headrests.

    ...beat me to it

    Dino's logic is sound, but Daniel knows that this is a "French Car Forum' he would have posted in the 'Pond' if the car were anything but French, isn't that so Daniel

    My guess a Citroen badged Peugeot - Citroen Xsara

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    My first thought was "French" when I saw the headrests. Then you see the seatbelt adjuster, which also looks French but could be something else too.

    I wouldn't have picked it accurately though. Never been in a Xsara.

    Yes, very familiar.
    Exactly the same interior as the Xsara VTR I have to drive because my wife wanted to have a small car (C5 is too big apparently) and then refuses to drive it - and I kept on telling that going form the hydro-pneumatic suspension to steel suspension will be a disappointment.

    Our dog is smaller. Similar colour scheme though. And he is a right pain as well.
