My husband decided to buy me this car without a test drive (not a good move). The car is certainly comfortable, plenty of space for the driver and front passenger, though perhaps a bit cramped in the rear for 3 adults, though it's fine for my 3 children. The boot space is good, and there are good gadgets with a great stereo and built in blue tooth in the VTR+ model that I have.
Driving it however is another story. The steering is very very light, so light however that it can feel that the... (read more)

This is a review of the new C3 1.4 HDi 5dr purchased 2010. I test drove a number of cars which had to have the following specification: comfort but be able to cope with spirited driving when required, economical daily driver but not be left behind in fast moving traffic, modern looking and low insurance/tax costs, with decent space for 5 adults..oh and some gadgets.
I had looked at most other small cars but fell for the quirky good looks (with moving headlining to give vast front screen),... (read more)

Other than the suspension problem the Citroen C3 1.4 HDI Exclusive is a great little car.Very economical (66 mpg).
Quiet for a small car.
Very relaxing drive, almost like a big saloon.
Remarkable amount of space, especially with the rear seats down. I can get a bass amp, guitar amp, P.A. and guitars in there. (read more)

I have a 2003 Citroen C3 1.4HDi. A couple of times the car has refused to start. I've called the AA, but had to cancel, as half an hour later the car starts with no problem. I once got locked into my wife's petrol model C3. Doors would not open from the inside. Engine cuts out while driving. On motorway at 70, going up 1/4 hill in 2nd, overtaking in 3rd, etc. No fault found by garage. Happens at least once a week. (read more)

I read a lot of reviews before buying a Citroen C3 and though I was attracted by reports of exceptional mileage from the HDi diesel, I was frankly a little worried by some very negative ones about computers falling over, doors failing to open and the like. In the end my experience has been almost completely positive.
I went for the HDi 1.4 Exclusive diesel with extras such as climate control, cruise control and arm rests. Add them together to general quietness (apart from some wind noise... (read more)
