What alternatives should I consider to a used Citroën C3 Aircross hatchback?

If you want the best used small SUV, look no further than the Seat Arona. It came on the market around the same time as the C3 Aircross, but it has since set the standard for what a small SUV should be like. Despite being sportier to drive, it actually has a more compliant ride and doesn’t roll nearly as much around corners. It’s a little more expensive to buy but well worth it.

Then there’s the Kia Stonic. This is another small SUV that runs rings around the C3 Aircross when it comes to handling, but it doesn't deal with rough roads and potholes quite so competently as the Arona. It does come with a much longer warranty, though, especially if you buy one through Kia’s approved used scheme because this tops the cover back up to seven years.

Verdict

Funky styling and flexible interior seating set the Citroen C3 Aircross apart from rivals; shame really that the driving experience leaves a lot to be desired

  • Strong turbocharged 1.2-litre engine
  • Flexible seating
  • Standard safety tech
  • Basic model has bland interior
  • Fiddly infotainment
  • Disappointing to drive
