    C-3 write up on Drive.com

    Just spotted this in passing - very interesting but why do this crew ALWAYS compare everything with a Holden?
    Is it all they know or mutual obligation to a major advertiser? :p

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Interesting,

    wonder if it'll sell out here.... We'll see I guess. Notice they didn't go as far as to say it's 'better' than the holden stuff (that's just someone elses re-badged car). Can't go pissing off our major advertisers can we by saying a competitors product is better

    seeya,
    Shane L. :p :p

    ha! .. I don't think a potential Barina owner would consider a C3 (or vice versa.)

    IMO Volkswagen (and their Polo compact car) should be more worried about the C3's arrival.

    On the topic of Holdens being the comparison benchmark for seemingly anything these days .. don't forget those Holden execs comparing upper spec Commodores/Monaros to BMWs and Mercedes (we need a laugh smiley BTW )

    From the above article:
    [quote]While Citroen has pioneered the use of air suspension, the C3 employs a more conventional set-up with springs and dampers. Body roll through corners is surprisingly well-controlled, especially given the car's height.

    I wonder when the motoring press will learn... air suspension?
