Citroen C3 (2002-2009) Review and running costs.

 

The Citroën C3 is a supermini car equipped with a range of inline-four cylinder engines. It has been produced by Citroën since 2002 and  was designed by Donato Coco and Jean-Pierre Ploué.

The C3 is almost mini-MPV-like in  it’s size and looks, with a high roof, a large airy cabin coupled with short front and rear overhangs.

It's both spacious and modern, with high levels of equipment in most versions. All the engines are economical (especially the diesels) and insurance and tax are both reasonable.

Good points: Clever design for the boot floor. Good diesel engines that are very economical and good value Four-star crash test rating. Good balance of ride comfort and road holding.

Bad points: Tailgate isn't that practical. Poor showing in Customer Satisfaction Surveys.
