I previously owned a 05 C3 Exclusive 1.6i 16v SensoDrive, and when I was due to change it in April 08, Citroen had stopped doing the C3 Exclusive with the SensoDrive Gearbox; only with a Fully Automatic Gearbox. So after driving a SensoDrive for 3 years, I decided to have the C2 VTR SensoDrive, as I didn't want to go back to a Fully Automatic car.
I have owned the car now 6 weeks, and I am well impressed. The car feels really powerful and I haven't revved it past 3,000rpm yet, as it's not run in, but it's going great and the fuel consumption; well I am shocked it's doing so well already, as it's suppose to get better after 3,500 miles But I am now getting over 40mpg, and I had 55mpg on a long run last week, so overall I am well impressed.
The seats are sport style seats, but they feel a lot more comfy than the ones in the C3.
I love the looks of it, with its sporty styling and 16 inch Cheetah alloy wheels with low profile tyres.
I had the car in Poseidon Blue, which is no longer available on the C2 VTR SensoDrive.
My dealer has been great. They really went out of their way for me.
The only thing I do miss from the C3 are the 2 back doors, cruise control, and the auto lights and wipers, but it's not the end of the world I suppose.
The mileage was 94 miles when I got it, due to the car had to be taken to get my hand controls fitted, but I'm glad really the car was taken on a good run before I had it.
