What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's got sharp looks and it's cheap to buy and run - ideal for young drivers

Against It's a tight fit in the back, there's little room in the boot and there are some reliability issues.

Verdict It's nippy and good fun, but the C2's real appeal is its low price and running costs

Go for… 1.1 Design

Avoid… 1.6 VTR Sensodrive

Citroën C2 Hatchback
  • 1. Space in the rear is very tight
  • 2. The Sensodrive semi-automatic gearbox isn't great to use, so it's best avoided
  • 3. Rear brakes have been known to bind on, so check them on a test drive
  • 4. If you're looking for practicality, look elsewhere - the boot is tiny
  • 5. The quality of materials in the cabin leaves a lot to be desired
