Don't waste your hard earned cash ...

The Citroen C3 (2019) is possibly the worst car I've ever driven but before I get into the multitude of negatives, let's start with the positives - it does look cool, space and headroom in the front seats is good, and boot space is adequate for a car of this pricepoint. That, I'm afraid, is it. The real issue with the C3 is that it feels woefully underpowered. Going up even the slightest incline will have you moving down the gears desperately trying to find one that won't result in you crawling along at walking pace. Even on flat roads, pressing the accelerator is like rolling a dice. It's as if the teams of hamsters rolling the wheels have a food break before deciding if they'll run harder. The clutch is a disaster with a nebulous biting point that will almost always result in jerky gear changes and monumental shudders. The pedals look as though they were designed for children and anyone wearing more than a size 9 shoe will find their foot darting about in a futile attempt to find the miniscule rest next to the clutch. The car doesn't so much corner as wallow lazily around. The suspension is so pathetic that any minor bump sends the whole vehicle rocking and bouncing. Coupled with the nonexistent feedback from the steering wheel, this is a vehicle that will give you zero confidence on any country road. On motorways the slightest gust of wind feels like a tornado, and as the car gets blown about, it instantly makes you feel that you're driving on ice. I The driving position is uncomfortable for anyone taller than about 5ft 10in and the seat adjustments are so basic you will never find a position that suits. Legroom in the back is fine for kids, but adults will be suffering after 15 minutes with cramp. The rearview mirror mounting is so chunky that it is obstructive to your view when attempting to turn, the side mirrors really don't show you enough to merge safely, and the overall shape of the roof, the pillars, and miniscule rear window leave you with massive blindspots. The mouth of the boot is oddly shaped with a substantial lip you'll have to haul luggage and groceries over, and the rear seats don't fold flat leaving bumps to negotiate for larger loads. The C3 is a terrible car. If your only criteria for buying a car is 'it looks kinda funky' then knock yourself out. Otherwise my advice is simple ... buy anything else!
