Review

The Citroën C3 Aircross is practical and reasonably priced, with an attractive interior and lots of personalisation options. However, plenty of rivals have superior infotainment systems, and are more comfortable and better to drive.

get the best price

Mid-level Shine trim brings sat-nav and a pull-out load floor that makes it easy to slide heavy items into the boot, but the main reason that this is our pick of the range is that it’s the cheapest way to get automatic emergency braking – a vital safety feature.

Despite being the cheapest engine in the range, this turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol unit is a fine choice because it picks up well from low revs, and is pretty smooth and quiet. It also averaged a healthy 43.5mpg when we put it through our True MPG test.
