Would guess it's one of the following:
1) Anti-roll bar bushes
2) front wishbone inner bushes
3) engine subframe mountings
4) engine/gearbox mountings
could also be:
- main ball joint
- suspension turret
- steering rack attachment

Beware before you assume the worst, on my Xantia this happens and it's just the brake pads shifting slightly in the calipers - I think some aftermarket pads are looser than others.

I'd put money on it being the brake pads too.
This was a common problem on BXs so can't see any reason it wouldn't carry on into the Xantias.
If you go to "common problems & fixes" you'll see where I posted to this effect a long time ago.
