Car Security Awards 2008 - Small family car
Price from £16,125
The result for the C4 Exclusive is boosted by a good alarm and laminated glass that resists smash-and-grab attacks.
Even though lower trim specifications in the family miss out on these features, and don't have the same rating, every model in the C4 range is still very secure.
Citroen's early adoption of laminated glazing means the C4 Exclusive has won this category every year since 2005.
2nd: Volvo C30
Price from £14,995
Excellent locks helped the C30 to a consistently strong performance across its entire range. Glazing isn't laminated, but it is bonded for added strength.
3rd: Audi A3
Price from £15,550
A good result from Audi, which fits identical levels of security across a range, so every model benefits. A decent score, although parts marking could be better.
