​UK Drive: Citroen C3​

​What’s is it?

The Citroen C3 has inherited the styling and funky looks of its crossover cousin the C4 Cactus, making it a more appealing prospect for young drivers who need more usable space than the brand’s offerings lower down the range.

What's new?

You’ll spot those airbumps on the side and signature lights from the Cactus, but it’s all round more compact and designed for negotiating city streets. With an economical engine, fun driving style and an attractive price, it’ll make a great option for drivers looking for something a bit different but easy to live with. 

What’s under the bonnet?

The 110 PureTech engine in our test car gives a great combination of usable power and economy, with 108bhp and 205Nm of torque. It will achieve 51.4mpg around town, 70.6 on the motorways, giving a combined figure of 61.4mpg. Its 103g/km emissions will put it just outside the golden sub-100g/km for free road tax, but owners will still only have an affordable £20 annual payment, although that’s subject to change when the new road tax rules come into force in April.

What's it like to drive?

The C3 makes a fantastic companion for around-town driving, as you’d expect from a car in this segment. With a tight turning circle and light kerb weight the C3 is ideal for manoeuvring around city streets. However, paired with the PureTech 110 engine, it also makes a compelling case for itself on motorways too. In this combination, and with a manual gearbox, the C3 has reasonable pace to keep up with most cars and will help the miles fly by. The only time it feels a bit unsteady is on country roads. Here the light steering of the C3 isn’t quite as direct as you’d like to complete a winding stretch with ease. 

​How does it look?

Compared with the previous generation, the looks of the C3 have been seriously updated. It’s been given a futuristic appearance with stylised lights, wheels and black bumpers. An attractive addition that PSA has tapped into with sister brand DS is customisation options, and on the C3 there are now 36 colours to choose from. The Citroen badge might not have the appeal of some of its rivals, but the transformation achieved with this car is sure to turn heads. Inside, Citroen has kept the C3’s interior practical and usable with textile fabrics and a clearly laid-out interior.

What's it like inside?

Space in the C3 is limited but reasonable. The doors open wide to give you great access to both the front and the rear seats, and once you’re inside you’ll find the space is well laid out too. The rear seats aren’t really designed for three adults but at a squeeze they can fit in. Boot space is also fairly reasonable, and for a weekend away you can easily pack two small suitcases.

What's the spec like?

Our C3 Flair test car has an attractive starting price of £16,285 and the range of options only add around £1,500 to the total. It was kitted out with the stunning Orange Power paint and Opal White roof, costing £495, the diamond-cut ‘Cross’ alloys are £200, while blind spot monitoring is only £100. The seven-inch touchscreen is a slightly pricier option at £500 but gives you easy connectivity to your phone for calls or music and sat nav. Finally, keyless entry and start was also added to our car for £250, which is not a necessity but it’s a great feature that makes life easier.

Citroen is targeting young drivers and young families with this five-seater, five-door hatchback, and it’s sure to attract them with its interesting looks, easy accessibility and an attractive price point. It’s ideal for families with young children or those who haven’t been driving for long, as it offers a comfortable drive.
