We've been exploring small Citroëns, beginning with the Visa and moving on to the AX. Next up was the C3, which by way of contrast was an utterly conventional car. It even has self cancelling indicators. By a further concession to normality it was replaced by another C3.

It did though have the option of Sensodrive, a ZF designed automated manual gearbox. It came with flappy paddles for gearchanging purposes so you could feel like an F1 driver. Without any performance, obviously. I've actually driven a few of these and despite what the detractors claim they were all fine.
