Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

The C3 Pluriel is one of the safest small convertibles around with a four-star Euro NCAP rating - the same as the standard C3. The roof arches and windscreen pillars are reinforced with aluminium and steel respectively, providing roll over protection for all passengers. All models are fitted with ABS, braking assistance and driver, passenger and front side airbags, while there are Isofix anchor points in the rear.

The fabric roof is also lined with metal strips to keep thieves at bay.

The C3 Pluriel’s all-weather versatility is useful whatever the season, but there is no storage for the detachable roof rails, which is useless if the weather changes quickly while you’re driving. Like many convertibles, boot space is seriously compromised when the roof is down, but there's enough room for a sizeable weekly shop when it's up. With the seats folded down, it's almost a pick-up, capable of taking bulky goods.

The door bins, lockable glovebox and dash-mounted storage cupboard make for decent stowage, plus the hardback front seats are scuff resistant.
