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: Feel

We think it’s worth the upgrade to the Feel model. This is because you get 16in alloy wheels and climate-control (rather than just manual air-con), plus a 7.0in touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, so you can use your phone’s sat-nav through the screen. You also have stereo controls on the steering wheel and electrically adjustable door mirrors.,

Engine: 1.2 PureTech

With only 67bhp this is the least powerful petrol engine and comes only with a five-speed manual gearbox. We’ve not driven it, but as the more powerful 81bhp of this engine struggles on faster roads, don’t expect any fireworks from this one.,engine_code:
