Citroen C3 2018
Carsguide Journalist Jake Williams had this to say at the time: The Citroen C3 Aircross is definitely one of the better options in the small SUV segment. It’s not without its faults - its ownership costs are too high, it’s not brilliant value-for-money, and more grunt would be appreciated. But it is a charming little car that rights a lot of recent Citroen wrongs.You can read the full review here.
This is what Jake Williams liked most about this particular version of the Citroen C3: Refreshingly soft ride quality, Funky design, Practical interior

Citroen C3 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Citroen C3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What small SUV do you recommend?
It sounds like you have a bit of a thing for French cars right now, Carmel. In fact, you could argue that the French brands are experiencing a bit of a resurgence in Australia, particularly as each brand gets its quality act closer to the mark and the factory warranties have never been better than right now.
All three of the cars you’ve nominated have their strong points, and it will really come down to your personal preferences when it comes to which one is right for you. And let me guess; it was the Peugeot 2008’s odd dashboard/steering wheel relationship that put you off. That’s particularly true for shorter folk who have trouble looking over the wheel at the instruments. But then, such quirkiness has always been part of the charm of French cars, no?
In any case, it would also be wise to sample the Japanese and South Korean contenders at this end of the market, too, as there are some interesting offerings there as well. The Toyota C-HR would be one, the Honda HR-V another. Don’t forget, either, the Hyundai Kona, Nissan Juke and the Mazda CX-3. All have their strengths and weaknesses, but all are worth short-listing.
As for the MX-5, it’s true that Mazda has stuck to the original formula for the new latest little convertible. And, yes, that dictates a small, low car that is huge fun to drive but isn’t for everybody physically.

Faulty windscreen in Citroen C3
The Citroen importer has told us that the correct windscreen is available, so it appears that the dealer involved has simply fitted the incorrect one, possibly because it was the cheapest option. The dealer has done the wrong thing by you, so you should attempt to resolve your complaint with them. If that isn't possible consider going to the fair trading people and seek their assistance.
