2006 Citroen C3Review
Citroen C3 Xtr — A slightly changed and bulkier version of the original C3, this version looks like the business. It has been made bulkier by adding bigger bumpers and edgeing along the body. It has a great, fully glass roof of which the front half electronically opens. Fitted with Citroens Senso-Drive gear box, it is completley gearless, which makes it and ideal car for people like me that suffer from disabilities. You can choose to drive in a completeley automatic mode, or choose the manual mode, which enables you to change gear yourself, all without the clutch. And the 1.4i 16v engine is not only extremley fuel efficient, but has enough poke to leave most other, similar cars standing at the lights.
Pros: Fuel efficent, looks, drive, awsesome cd stereo, comfortable interior.
Cons: Senso-drive still needs a bit more tweeking by Citroen, What you gain with the glass roof, you pay for not having air-con.

C3 1.4 Hdi Sensodrive
Nice little car. I'm tall and I really like the space above the head. The engine is a real camel, very low consumption. Still, it's a too small car for me. The Sensodrive system is great, but not very... Read More

Acceleration was ok for 1.4 liter engine. Braking system was very good. Handling was a question of luck, i'd have this luck. Maybe with ESP on board will be good but whit-out it i've made 3 crashes... Read More
Can't See Why You'd Buy One Unless You Like Its Looks Or Find An Awesome Deal.
LOOKS/STYLE: This is, in my mind, a car that's all about looks. When it went on sale this car dared to be (slightly) different and it was in fact funky and stylish. Some even said this was a spiritual... Read More
