The Citroen C3 five-door hatchback is a new entry into the crowded small car segment, and one that comes with a big reputation from overseas.
The C3 has won car-of-the-year awards in Europe and was even voted the “world’s most beautiful small car”.
In Australia, the C3’s pricing puts it at the upper end of the small car segment where it competes with recent new (and well regarded) arrivals such as the Honda Jazz, Mazda2 and Renault Clio.
Two versions of the C3 are available, the SX and Exclusive. Both are powered by a 1.4 litre single overhead camshaft engine that produces a fairly meagre 57 kW. Buyers have the choice of five-speed manual or four-speed-automatic transmission.
