      Pitty they are still using the same crappy interior materials, the exterior desing is quite well resolved.

      Not bad, it has its own style. But Peugeot did it better.

      Very fun looking. Its good to see that the new design language of the C3 looks good on larger cars.

      Is it a Tiguan competitor or is it smaller?

      Cabin quality is the least problem with Citroens. A friend of mine bought the new C3 a few weeks ago, and guess what? I can't drive it in my Dr.Marten boots because:

      1. The clutch and brake pedals are too close together.
      2. The foot rest to the left for the clutch pedal is too close to the pedal itself.

      It's as if the car was designed to be driven in size 7 ballerina shoes.:t-crazy2:

        Well ballerinas usually drive C3s.

        Funny story, I experienced the same when I introduced myself to such shoes earlier this year (though just the good old Timberland boots, not the fancy Dr. Marten ones).

        The first time I stepped into my Clio, I nearly killed myself and it took me at a few weeks to get used to it. Mind you, that I'm driving the Clio since the day I got my license. Then again, the first time I stepped into the S60 with the same shoes it was like nothing changed.

        Of course, there's another side to this story. A perfectly executed heel'n'toe downshift in the Clio is quite easy, given the relative position of the pedals, which is bloody perfect. Now, to do the same with the Volvo, that's some serious choreography, given the distance in both axes of each couple of pedals.

        Bottom line, I prefer the pedals to be close together, than be able to drive with fancy shoes.

          That's a good point. Pedals that are close together are handy for slick heel and toe action! I was quite shocked by my shoes not being too clumsy as I have zero issues using them in other cars.

          My biggest take away was certainly to never ever buy a car without test driving it in my biggest shoes.

          Is this car Citröen's 3008/5008? Or is a suv?

              On-screen HVAC controls. How lazy and non user-friendly. :pukeface::pukeface:

              It's distinctively French circa 1970's in its interior and certainly inoffensive in its exterior. When you see how Peugeot have conquered its home market with the 3008 I can see this car joining it and perhaps the DS7 also appealing to French tastes.
              Even though if you squint and it could be an Audi.(DS7)
