Much to like, but the crashy ride stops it being the best

This is our favourite trim because it keeps the price down but gives you access to better engines in the range. Standard equipment is good, adding to the Chic trim 17in alloys, climate control, rear parking sensors, a two-tone colour option and, as the name suggests, better connectivity including smartphone mirroring (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and sat-nav.

We’d definitely recommend opting for this version of Citroën’s three-cylinder petrol engine over its lower-powered counterpart; it’s very willing and, although the power band is rather small, provides good performance. It’s only a fraction less efficient than the least powerful version, too. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard or you can opt for a six-speed auto ’box.
