Hi Oska - I fitted a towbar to my '98 Xantia Estate shortly after I got it. The part numbers for the estate and hatchback are quite different (and different prices as well). I would think you will have difficulty getting the estate bar to fit the hatchback. For starters the estate is .2 of a metre longer than the saloon.

Hi Oska
If you are in the uk I can recomend http://www.towingbrackets.com you can buy from a choice of type approved manufacturers online, not Citroen of course but then not many want to pay the main dealer prices anyway, I did however pay through the nose for the Citroen Xantia wiring kit, it plugs in so you dont have to butcher the car wiring.
