Citroen C3 - At a glance car review


Make: Citroen

Model: C3


Citroen has returned to form with the new C3 supermini. The five-door hatchback is back to what the French brand does best – quirky and characterful with plenty of personalization options and innovative technology such as the dashcam that will upload to social media at the touch of a button.

CCT positive:

Characterful and brave styling inside and out, the C3 is also comfortable and offers decent interior space.

CCT negative:

The looks won’t appeal to everyone, and it’s not top of the class for driving enjoyment. The pedal box is also a bit tight.

Main rivals:

Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 208, Renault Clio, Vauxhall Corsa

Interesting alternatives:

Mazda 2, Kia Rio, Seat Ibiza

CCT says:

Great return to form for Citroen after the anonymous previous model. Won’t be to everyone’s taste, but is a much better all-round package that at least grabs the attention.
