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

This trim level gets you plenty of equipment including LED headlights, 16in alloys, reverse parking sensors, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, cruise control and a 7in touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone mirroring. You can only get the least powerful engine choice with it, though.
