Citroën C3 (02-10)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I like a car that is a little different - there are not many of these on the road, and they make a welcome change from the common Fiestas and Corsas

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone is impressed by it ! When they first hear, it usually sparks 'why did you buy a C3?' but on seeing it, that normally changes to 'I want one' !

Would you buy this car again and why?
Absolutely. Unmatched economy and performance combination, individual, stylish and just generally a very satisfying drive

What are you likely to buy next?
CLK, A4 or 3 series (used, convertible)

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic, no other word can describe it. The 1.6HDi 110bhp engine is a fabulous piece of engineering. It is punchy, refined, frugal, and clean. What more can one ask for? The torque is phenominal for an engine with under 1600cc, and can leave many larger engined car drivers with a look of surprise on their faces. It can cruise for hours and will not make you tired of driving it. Handling is sharp without any compromise on ride, and it is easy to manouvre in town.

What's it like to park?
Easy as anything. The variable power assisted steering lightens the slower you go, and when combined with the fantastic visibility, parking is a doddle

Living with it

Not one problem so far, and feels solid

The boot is not matched by anything in it's class

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Digital dash is one of the best I've seen - all information is displayed clearly and accurately
