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 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.

Going for this engine does save you money, but it feels underpowered; you often need to use full power just to keep up with traffic.
