2017 Citroen C3 Review Shines Light On Quirky Yet Desirable Package

If you don’t want your supermini to seamlessly blend into a sea of Fiestas, Polos and Clios, Citroen’s all-new 2017 C3 should merit consideration.

This funky-looking sub-compact is a sort of a mixed package if you’re looking at its design. In a nutshell, you’ve got the C4 Cactus-inspired airbump protection panels and interior, a C4 Picasso-inspired front fascia and DS3-inspired taillights.

To put it another way, at least you won’t be able to blame Citroen for drawing inspiration from any other brand out there. Besides, some people, such as Carbuyer’s Ginny Buckley, tend to find the new C3 rather cute, which is probably what Citroen wanted all along.

On the inside, there are some cheap scratchy plastics, especially on top of the dashboard, but if you enjoy the overall aesthetic of the cabin and the color diversity, you might be willing to set quality aside.

On the road, the reviewer advises skipping over the diesels and going with the 3-cylinder petrol units due to them being relatively fuel efficient and smooth, however in terms of dynamics, you’d still be having more fun behind the wheel of a Fiesta.

In the end, it seems Citroen have built a very attractive car in the all-new C3, and if you don’t mind glossing over the fact that some rivals have better materials inside and may be sportier to drive overall, you might as well shortlist the C3 if you’re in the market for a supermini.
