Citroen C3 Is A Real Surprise

This pleases me. I like a car that, whilst competing deep within the supermini sector, offers a little bit of flair and individuality that sets it apart. Such is the case with the Citroen C3 you see here, loaned to me in the top-specification Flair trim (see below).

Kia Sportage Wins Hearts And Minds

With a steady October 2016 for car sales in the UK, the Kia Sportage remains a strong seller for the brand.
