New Citroen C3: driven - The C3 line-up
When discounts are taken into account, we'd expect the Citroën to be considerably cheaper than both. Running costs and emissions are much of a muchness among all superminis these days – none has a clear advantage.
Citroën will be selling an eco version of the C3, too. Badged Airdream+, it'll offer around 75mpg and just 99g/km of CO2, making it road tax free. Also coming next year are stop/start versions and automatics.
All in all, the C3 looks like another great car from Citroën. Whether its greatness extends to troubling the Fiesta and Polo remains to be seen when we get the final specifications and prices, and drive it in the UK.
Stylish, well-built and easy-going small car
