Citroen C1 Vibe
Advantages: Great fun to drive.
Disadvantages: A bit noisy for the driver
This car is perfect for driving around town if you are an eco conscious and fuel savvy motorist. It really is incredibly economical and frequently delivered 60mpg around town. However, I used this car to drive 25 miles to work each day over very hilly country roads so the mpg plummeted to 40mpg, and I also wore the brakes down very quickly (a bit of a typical Citroen fault).
It is very nippy and feels sporty to drive; you can throw it around corners easily because of its size and even though it only has a 1 litre engine it doesn't hang about. There is a bit of a din when driving and music is drowned out when driving on the motorway. Inside, it sounds a bit like the exhaust is blowing but this is just because of the 3 cylinders (so the man at the Citroen garage told me).
Yes, the boot is tiny but I only ever used it for a weekly shop and you can get 5 shopping bags in there, no trouble. In short; a lovely nippy little motor.
Summary: A budget buy for the savvy driver
