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: Touch

This entry-level trim gets you split-folding rear seats, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, and a DAB radio with Bluetooth. Safety equipment includes lane departure warning, a tiredness monitor and six airbags, but you don't get (and can't add) automatic emergency braking. Be warned, too, that there’s no air-con or alloy wheels.

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.
