It’s a joy to drive and extremely comfortable so you may well find yourself the designated driver for all of your mates on a night out.
If you’re after a small car that is fashionable and roomy then the Citroen C3 could be the one for you. Grab yourself a brand new model with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
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 one that perfectly matches your personal style.
It’s an enjoyable drive and surprisingly quiet and refined - you won’t be straining to hear your music or the conversation in this car.
Unlike some of the other superminis which struggle with space in the back, the C3 can easily seat five passengers – they’ll be so comfy in the back there won’t be cause for complaint on those long summer road trips! There’s plenty of headroom and legroom so tall drivers and passengers won’t feel neglected.
The C3 only comes with 5 doors and the boot space is immense. There’s no problem in cramming everyone and everything into this car, so if you’re taking your mates and all their gear to a music festival in the summer it will be a doddle.
The C3 scored 4 stars in the Euro NCAP crash test, one shy of the gold standard. The minor shortfall is partly down to certain safety features like ESP (Electronic Stability Control) not coming as standard across the range. You can opt for these features in a higher spec model if you like. All models come with driver, passenger and side airbags, emergency braking assistance, hazard warning lights and anti-lock brakes.
The Citroen C3’s fuel economy is excellent across the range and insurance costs are kept nice and low with most models sitting between insurance groups one and four.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
