For the 20 years it’s been on the market, the Citroen C3 has always stood out from the crowd. Naturally, the first thing you’ll notice about it is its typically ‘out there’ Citroen design, but there’s plenty more to the French manufacturer’s bestselling supermini than funky looks.
At Stellantis &You UK, we’ve got a vast range of approved used Citroen C3s for sale, with offers ranging from great deals on older versions of the latest generation to significant discounts on nearly new options with barely any miles on the clock. Shop our online range above or visit your nearest Stellantis &You UK dealer to start your journey towards purchasing your next car.
Why buy a Citroen C3 used?
The C3 has come a long way in its two-decade, three-generation history. While the brief of creating a fun, stylish and spacious supermini hasn’t changed, the third-gen Citroen C3 – which arrived in 2017 – is a far cry from the original.
Today, the C3 is the brand’s bestselling model in Europe, which has meant Citroen have placed additional focus on making it a highly competitive supermini. The quirky looks have been modernised and ramped up to create a truly standout design offering. But beyond the exterior, the C3 excels in comfort and efficiency.
As an ambassador of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, the C3 boasts specially designed, extra-padded seats with a spacious and naturally lit interior dubbed a ‘cocoon of comfort’. The ride, meanwhile, has been softened to soak up any bumps in the road. From an efficiency standpoint, a second-hand C3 offers extremely competitive running costs – some of the lowest in its class. It's a huge boost for those looking for a cheap-to-run used car.
The styling, comfort and efficiency qualities are where the third-generation C3 excels. If your shopping brief lies in finding a roomy and comfy supermini with a bit of an edge to it, the outwardly eccentric and inwardly sophisticated characteristics of a used Citroen C3 are virtually unrivalled. Plus, those low running costs make it a viable economy option.
What trim options are available in the second-hand C3 range?
Since its arrival in 2017, Citroen has reshuffled the trim levels in the catalogue a few times, starting with just three options upon release in the form of Touch, Feel and Flair. In 2018, there was an Elle edition added, while in 2019 the line-up was reimagined to include Origins and Flair Plus. Two further reshuffles took place in 2021, which introduced Sense, Shine, Shine Plus and C-Series, with Shine then replaced by Saint James in October 2021.
That means you’ll need to pay attention to the age of the Citroen C3 used model that you’re buying to know what you’re getting, but here’s a brief rundown of what’s on offer from some of the more popular trims in our Citroen C3 second-hand range:
· Used Citroen C3 Feel: The C3 Feel became the new entry point for the model line-up in 2019 but offers a generous equipment package including a 7-inch colour touchscreen, 16-inch Matrix alloys, MirrorScreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, Lane Departure Warning and auto air conditioning.
· Used Citroen C3 Flair and Flair Nav Edition: The range-topping Flair trim includes automatic headlights and wipers, privacy glass, rear parking sensors and camera, a dashcam and Airbump panelling on the doors. This all comes on top of the features included with the C3 Feel. The Flair Nav Edition adds a contrast roof and door mirror caps among several other aesthetic enhancements.
· Used Citroen C3 Flair Plus: Since 2019, the Flair Plus trim has replaced both the Flair and Flair Nav Edition options, offering both the increased engine and gearbox options of the Flair with the enhanced specifications of the Flair Nav Edition.

Used Citroen C3 FAQs
How reliable is a Citroen C3 used?
While early-generation C3s faced some criticism over reliability issues, the third-generation C3 has been redeveloped to offer much better reliability qualities than its predecessors.
Sharing a platform with the Peugeot 208 and Citroen C4 Cactus, a used Citroen C3 benefits from a lot of uniformity in its basic production. And with the C3 now Citroen’s bestselling model in Europe, the manufacturer has worked hard on creating a much more reliable formula.
How safe is a used Citroen C3?
The latest generation of Citroen C3 carries a 4-star Euro NCAP safety rating, scoring highly for adult occupant safety (88%) and child occupant safety (83%).
How big is the Citroen C3?
The Citroen C3 is a generously sized supermini, with the space afforded in the interior one of its main selling points. The C3 is just under four metres long and just over two metres wide. You get 300 litres of boot space (or 922L with the seats down), making it a great option for storage.
What kind of mileage can I get from a second-hand C3?
The mileage you can expect from your Citroen C3 second hand largely depends on the engine type and size you’ve gone for. Generally speaking, though, you can expect somewhere in the region of 40-55mpg from the petrol engines and 55-70mpg from the diesel options.
As a whole, a second-hand C3 is considered a car with cheap running costs, making it an excellent used option.
