Citroen C3 review
1.2P Turbo Feel Dual-Tone Vibe Pack (ex-showroom)
There’s an equal dose of flair inside the cabin, especially if you’re to choose the zesty orange variant. It starts with the textured surface on the passenger side that is hard to miss, and feels good to touch. The AC vents have a funky geometric design, and the chunky AC rotary knobs have a satisfying old school feel to them as they click into place. Citroen has also been generous with spaces and pockets to store your phone and other knick knacks. There’s also a handy wire guide built into the dash, which is essentially a recess to tuck in your charging cable.
There are car brands that believe in throwing the kitchen sink when it comes to offering tech features. Citroen is clearly not one of them. The highlight of the C3’s not-so-long feature list is a 10in infotainment system that sits on top of the dash, and is easily visible to all passengers.
The steering is well weighted and offers a decent amount of feedback, which gives you the confidence to drive fast on windy roads. The SUV-like height does add a bit of roll when cornering, but the wide stance keeps things in control. The ride height coupled with the punchy turbo engine and driving dynamics make the Citroen C3 an ideal choice for family weekend getaways.
A good looking compact French car that wows us with strong performance and its few tech bits.
