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.

This has the plushest interior available on a C3, plus standard fit sat-nav, bigger 17in alloy wheels, a reversing camera and some extra safety features such as automatic emergency braking.

This 108bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine is the pick of the line-up. It has plenty of pep to its step whether you’re nipping into a gap on a roundabout or merging onto the motorway.
