Despite me not liking a 2004 first-generation 'auto' Citroen C3 I was lent years ago, I have to defend the current version to an extent, (not least because I chose to buy one over other similar cars for my Missus.) For sure it's no driver's car, but then it's not sold as such and - (the odd hot hatch version aside) - Citroen's never have been. Comfort is what they are supposed to be about and the current C3 certainly rides more comfortably/deals with speedhumps better than all of it's supermini rivals that I tried, including the rather tinny-feeling Aygo. It is also surprisingly quiet, (certainly no noisier than Father's 6 month newer 1.2 Leon.) Although the steering is too light and feel is rather limited, so it is with most modern electric-assisted systems. The car handles perfectly ok at low/medium speeds without the pitching/yawing of her previous GM supermini and cruises quite well at high speed on the motorway. A B-road blast reveals it's handling limitations quickly enough, (the poorly set-up rear suspension being the main culprit) and is certainly unpleasant to drive in such circumstances, but then it's not built or sold for that and most owners wouldn't drive it in that manner anyway. The 3 cylinder engine has enough power for this type of car and has a good amount of low-down torque which suits the relaxed nature of the car well. The touchscreen is annoying at first until you get used to it, but the 'important' safety functions like instant demist and HRW are on 'normal' buttons below the screen anyway. The screen icons just mean it takes longer to change some features than is ideal - a minor PITA sometimes, but nothing more. In short, it suits it's intended clientele pretty well - but wannabe racers certainly need not apply.
