Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The new C3 is a fun little car - cheery, characterful and French. And, like a lot of French things, it isn't cheap. You won't be buying this with your head but I don't think Citroen is expecting unemotional purchasers to darken its doors. You have to want it - you're not looking for startling performance figures or exceptional value, you're looking for something out of the ordinary.

Pros
Great looks
Fun engine
Terrific ride

Cons
Lack of AEB
Touchscreen hardware a bit slow
Over-enthusiastic stop-start

The third-generation C3 is an altogether more accomplished offering than the second-gen C3 it replaces, a frumpy and humpy hatchback with lacklustre performance that had its genesis way back in 2009. Instead, Citroen has reinvented the C3, adding not only some much-needed style, but also injecting a performance lift thanks to a new drivetrain.

Pros
Oozes style
Beautiful ride
Spacious interior, front and rear
Thrummy three-pot engine sings

Cons
Auto transmission hesitant at low speeds
No AEB or blind-spot, hence 4-star ANCAP
Expensive for the category

The Citroen C3 has quirky looks and a cabin that’s comfortable unless you’re a tall person in the back. However, it’s hard to drive smoothly in town and the infotainment system is clunky.

Pros
Comfortable suspension
Quiet cabin
Quirky styling

Cons
Average rear-seat space
Hard to drive smoothly
Infotainment isn’t the best

By:
