PROS

Cheap to buy and run, funky styling, easy to manoeuvre into small spaces

CONS

Lacklustre engines, sloppy gear change, some cheap interior plastics, overly light steering

Verdict

The Citroen C2 carries on where its predecessor, the Saxo, left and is a neatly packaged, easy to drive and affordable small hatchback. It's also well equipped and cheap to run, so makes an ideal choice as a first car. Unfortunately build quality and refinement are in short supply and the plasticky interior isn't particularly pleasant or comfortable.

There are some neat touches though, like a split-opening hatch and a paddleshift gearchange option on certain models, but on the road the C2 is outclassed by similarly priced alternatives. In 2008 the model was facelifted with a new front bumper and grille while equipment levels were upped.
