With its funky looks, the Citroen C3 does a great job of turning heads. However, it's poor to drive and not very practical, so any number of rivals are more recommendable on an objective level.

Trim: Origins

This is a limited edition trim made to celebrate Citroen's 100 year anniversary. You get plenty of kit and unique styling for a reasonable price, but sadly you can only have Origins trim with the weedy entry-level PureTech 83 engine. There are only four colours to choose from: white, back and two shades of grey.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech 82

Around town, this 81bhp three-cylinder petrol engine feels pokey enough. But get it out onto the motorway and you need to rev it hard to get anywhere quickly. The standard five-speed manual gearbox has a very woolly shift action.
