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

Range-topping Shine Plus cars feature everything from keyless entry and start to a sliding rear bench that allows you to prioritise boot or passenger space. However, they’re a bit on the pricey side, so we’d stick with the regular Shine trim.

This 128bph petrol engine barely feels any stronger than the cheaper Puretech 110 unit, so the main reason for choosing it is because you don’t like changing gear; an eight-speed auto ’box comes as standard.
