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.

The sole diesel engine in the C3 Aircross line-up has even more low rev punch than the Puretech 100 petrol. However, it's more expensive to buy and, well, diesel isn't very fashionable at the moment.
