Whether you’re a fan of its looks or not, you've got to admit that the latest Citroën C3 is a small car that bristles with difference, from whichever angle it's observed.

It borrows a chunk of style from its popular bigger brother, the C4 Cactus. And it does so with one aim: to woo you away from such gems as the Ford Fiesta and Skoda Fabia.

The Air Bump side inserts – standard on the top trim – mean minor dings are absorbed by plastic panels that can be easily replaced if needed.

What's more, the C3 could protect your no claims bonus in more serious scrapes, thanks to a built in dashcam which comes as standard on the top-spec Flair model; download an accompanying smartphone app and this also allows you to take videos and pictures of your road trip, then upload them to social media.

Should you allow yourself to be tempted by this style and tech? During this review will look at how the Citroën C3 stacks up against its rivals, and which engines, trims and options are best.
