When looking for the best car deal for a used Citroën C3, it is important that you only compare with the deals of cars with a similar engine and equipment variant. If you don't, you could make a wrong decision on which car to acquire.
As a guide, the most expensive equipment variant, named Shine (Avg. price £16,430), is 25% more expensive than the lowest priced variant, Touch (Avg. price £9,200), so you can save an average of £7,230 by choosing the cheapest variant. Typically, the depreciation is higher for the expensive equipment variant when buying a new Citroën C3, as dealerships don't value equipment at the same level when reselling the car.

Fuel types for Citroën C3
Your current driving habit is a determining factor when it comes to picking a fuel type. Do you only use your car to get to and from work? Is the distance less than roughly 35 miles each way? If you use your car for short distances or in the city, you should consider electric or petrol cars.
If you tend to drive longer distances, we suggest opting for diesel. Keep in mind that diesel engines with high emissions have been banned from entering cities in a range of countries.
