Part of the Citroen line-up since it replaced the Saxo back in 2003, the C3 supermini is now in its second generation and widely regarded as a bit of a class act, especially after a smart new facelift in 2013. The C3 successfully matches Citroen’s reputation for distinctive styling and innovative design with a degree of practicality, comfort and affordability that should perfectly suit the needs of most young drivers.

The C3 HATCHBACK 1.0 PureTech VT 5dr is one of our top selling cars for young drivers and comes with the following features as standard, plus many more – from only £184 per month with 1 year's free insurance!
If you’re after a small car with a dash of French style then look no further. The C3 comes in an eye-catching range of smart colours including ink blue, hickory green and ruby red, so the fashion conscious among you shouldn’t have trouble picking out a C3 that perfectly matches your personal style. Check out our brilliant Citroen C3 deals for young drivers.
The Citroen C3 is cleverly designed to make the most of its modest proportions. While it’s just as compact as most of its class competitors and smaller than the Ford Focus, the C3 comes close to matching the bulkier Ford for cabin space and boasts a generous 300-litre boot that beats most other superminis on capacity. The C3 won’t be out of place at Glastonbury, especially when you fold down the back seats to create a cavernous 1,121-litre storage space, big enough that you could almost fit the Pyramid stage in there!
If you or any of your mates are a bit on the lanky side you’ll be glad to find that the C3’s cleverly designed interior offers plenty of head and legroom for such a small car.
The C3 scored 4 stars in the Euro NCAP crash test, one shy of the gold standard. The minor shortfall is partly attributable to certain safety features like ESP (Electronic Stability Control) not coming as standard across the range. If you don’t want to go without these features however you could opt for a higher spec model. All models come with driver, passenger and side airbags, emergency braking assistance, automatic hazard warning lights and anti-lock brakes.
As you would expect from a supermini, the Citroen C3’s fuel economy is excellent across the range. The diesel models are especially competitive, offering 80+ mpg performance and CO2 emissions that are so low you won’t have to stump up a penny on road tax. Top of the pile in terms of economical excellence is the super thrifty 1.4 eHDi Airdream, which delivers 83.1 MPG and CO2 emissions of 87g/km.
