Review

With its funky looks inside and out, the Citroën C3 does a great job of turning heads. It’s also surprisingly well equipped. However, it's poor to drive and not very practical, so any number of rivals are more recommendable on an objective level.

get the best price

At the top of the range is the Flair Plus trim. This pushes the price up by a reasonable chunk, but for that you get larger 17in alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, advanced comfort seats, a driver’s centre armrest, faux-wood trim and a safety pack that brings automatic high-beam headlights and a driver attention alert system.

This turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine is our pick of the range, thanks to plenty of oomph for town and motorway driving. The six-speed manual gearbox isn’t very slick, but you can have an automatic if you'd prefer.
