  • Citroen C3 (2017 on)
    Comfortable seats and ride quality. Much improved interior quality. Standard built-in dash cam on Flair models.
  • Citroen C3 (2010 - 2017)
    Neat looking small hatchback. Uses some of the same engines as MINI. 1.6 HDi is the best in the range. Excellent ride quality.
