Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

Forward visibility is good but small wing mirrors and a limited rear screen mean that rear visibility isn't great, though it's not a cause for concern as the C2 is so small. The cabin doesn't feel particularly sophisticated and there are plenty of low rent plastics on show, but the design is neat. There's a large digital speedo, which means you always know the exact speed you're travelling, while the rev counter is a funky-style gauge.

The steering wheel adjusts for height only (there's no reach adjustment) so finding a good driving position isn't always easy.

The C2 is really only suitable for two people for the majority of journeys - the two back seats are cramped with very little legroom. In the front comfort is more than acceptable though - head and legroom are pretty good and the sports seats (borrowed from the VTR) offer good support for longer journeys. The biggest downside is the lack of air conditioning though - it's not even available as an optional extra.
