2017 Citroen C3 Review


The Citroen C3 used to be one of the most tedious superminis on sale. Not any more. This new 2017 model, inspired by the breakthrough Citroen C4 Cactus, has been transformed, turning it from class dunce into one of the stars of the sector. If you want styling flair and something refreshingly different, look no further.


Body Style: Supermini          Seats: 5                          MRP from £10,995 - £17,385 


Did you know? The Citroen ConnectedCam acts as a dashcam, storing footage 30 seconds before an accident and 60 seconds afterwards.

The previous Citroen C3 was barely a contender in Britain’s ultra-competitive supermini sector. This new 2016 model transformed the five-door hatchback’s fortunes. Outwardly good-looking and design-conscious, it’s eye catching in a way the anonymous previous model was not. The rest of it is newly competitive as well, with a smart cabin, competitive drive and some decent engines. Prices aren’t bargain-basement, but they’re good value, rounding out the C3’s bottom-to-top transformation in class competitiveness.
