Unusual styling, good diesel option


Roof rails cannot be stowed on-board, interior feels cheap and flimsy, dull to drive, cramped rear seats

Citroën C3 Pluriel rivals

Written by David Ross on

The C3 Pluriel is a fairly cheap way of getting into drop-top motoring, offering quirky looks low running costs. The roof has plenty of versatility and can be slid back in sunroof mode, retracted fully for a convertible or the you can even remove the roof bars altogether to turn it into a roadster. However the problem is that this has to be done by hand and there's nowhere to store them on board.

Not exactly useful if you're caught out in a shower. It's dull to drive too with overly light steering and vague controls while the interior feels built to a budget with a lack of refinement. In June 2008 the model was given a subtle facelift along with interior tweaks and improved standard equipment levels.
