What's the used Citroën C3 Pluriel sports like?

A low-cost, four-seat convertible for family outings sounds great, and in theory that's what the Citroen C3 Pluriel should be. The reality, however, is somewhat different.

It takes too long and too much muscle power to remove the roof's side rails, and there's nowhere to store them in the car. Yet, without them you can't close the roof at your destination.

This lack of thought shows in other areas of the Pluriel such as the dull drive. Without the roof rails in place, there's too much flex in the body and car squirms over bumps.

At least with the roof in place, the Pluriel's cabin is reasonably quiet and its engines give decent performance.

The dash is lifted directly from the C3 hatchback, so it looks good but is finished in hard, cheap-looking plastics. Space in the front is good, but the rear seat is only big enough for children.
