Citroen C3 (2009-Onwards) Running costs model by model and review.

In July 2009, Citroën revealed a second generation C3. Featuring all new body design with a 108 degree field of vision windscreen, better known as the Zenith panoramic windscreen. The screen is similar to that on the larger C4 Picasso and is available on all bar the entry model VT.

The new C3 builds on the curvy profile of the previous model and has a look in keeping with other Citroën models. It is longer and wider than the old model.

The lights at the front, bonnet, dashboard assembly and other components are all shared with the more expensive DS3.

The instrumentation is a mix of analogue dials beneath a styled cowl and a digital display for the fuel and trip computer. There is no temperature gauge ,unlike the DS3, but a red and blue warning lamp to show hot or cold engines which come on as required.

For: Neat looking small hatchback, uses some of the same engines as MINI, 1.6 HDi engine emits 110g/km of CO2, excellent ride quality.

Against: Lacklustre handling, interior looks good on the surface but lacks quality in depth.
