Citroën C3 (02-10)

Value

4 out of 5

Good value with either cash backs or in my case VAT equivalent returned made the costs reasonable - combined with the built in extras I opted for the full sunroof option - £350 well spent.

Costs

3 out of 5

Servicing costs in proportion are on the higher than average.

Driving

4 out of 5

Sitting up almost "Focus" like enables good all round vision and a pleasure.

Performance

5 out of 5

The 16 Valve Diesel is astonishingly quick after some initial lag - average of 62.4 in mixed cant be bad!

Reliability

3 out of 5

No major problems experience although glove box won't properly close and leak from the sunroof when car parked at angle still not cured.

Image

4 out of 5

All in all looks pretty good with the raised aspect - definitely appeals to a wide audience.

Comfort

4 out of 5

In the front great - wouldn't fancy being bigger than vertically challenged for the rear though.
