Engines and Driving Experience
Small and efficient petrol engines are the most common in the range, although you can also find diesel variants too. These happen to offer the most efficiency from their 1.5-litre, 100bhp engines, with up to 67mpg possible.
The 1.2-litre petrol offers the most punch with 108bhp, dropping the 0-62mph time to just over 9 seconds, whilst other engines in the range take between 10 and 12 seconds. The 1.2-litre petrol can return almost 50mpg too.
The C3 also offers a comfortable driving experience thanks to large, spongey seats and a ride that is very forgiving, making the UK's roads seem a lot smoother.
Practicality and Running Costs
Available with 5-doors as standard, the C3 offers that little bit more practicality with easier access. There are also funky airbumps on the lower sills to help with door dings, as well as add to the striking looks.
Supermini hatchbacks like the C3 are popular due to their excellent everyday practicality, and this particular C3 offers a decent 300-litre boot capacity. However, the beauty with these cars is their versatility, so if you drop the rear seats, you're presented with a massive 922-litre load space - which will be rather handy for family life.
As for running costs, the C3's engine choices can return around 50mpg or more as previously mentioned. The C3 is also inexpensive to insure thanks to the small capacity engines, and servicing costs are also reasonable, and can be taken care of by your local Evans Halshaw Citroën dealer.
Interior, Technology and Safety
A striking exterior is met by an equally stylish interior, with large, clear dials and a smart, central infotainment screen.
It was very customisable as a new car, so there are plenty of different variations on used examples. The design is very French, and so style plays a huge part giving the C3 a premium designer feel.
The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment adds to the style as well as the tech, complemented by Bluetooth and DAB radio.
As for safety, the C3 was awarded four out of five stars in its Euro NCAP safety rating. This is thanks to safety kit which includes stability control, multiple airbags, lane departure warning and cruise control.
Is the Citroën C3 right for me?
Chances are, if you are looking at modern Citroën models, you like unique style and like to stand out - in a good way.
Of course, in terms of supermini hatchbacks, cars like the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa are popular, and are undoubtedly the textbook choices. But if you want something different, that offers more unique style and flair, then the C3 is a fine alternative.
It may not be able to match the Fiesta's all-round greatness, but it offers more comfort, style and flair than the Corsa. It's definitely worth a look if you want something a little less obvious, when looking at a quality used supermini.
