What's the used Citroën C2 hatchback like?

Much like the Saxo that went before it, the C2 has become a favourite with young drivers who like their cars, but don't have much to spend.

Not only does it look sharp, it's also quite a lot of fun to drive, even if the steering is a bit dull at higher speeds. The ride isn't bad, either - only larger lumps and bumps will cause the C2 problems.

Most of the C2's limitations lie on the inside. Although there's plenty of room up front, space in the rear is very tight indeed, and the boot is tiny, too. What's more, the quality of the materials used in the cabin falls a long way short of the best in the class.

Still, the C2 has everything that young drivers want, and provides it at a low cost. Most are reasonably well equipped, too.
