Citroën C3 1.6i 16V VTR 5d (2006/06) - Owner Review

It's not really a practical car, will take 4 people in reasonable comfort but the boot is not large and 5 people is a squash.

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Sporty little hot hatch, but doesn't look like it. My wife says it makes her look good.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Like the car, love the look of it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would buy this car again as it's a great little car, drives well on A and B roads, and also performs well on the motorways. Ride is a little bumpy but that wouldn't put me off. Gearbox is not as positive as i would like but still not enough to stop me buying one.

What are you likely to buy next?
Something of a similar size.
