Everyone has fond memories of their first car. It seems we can recall the good times spent exploring new places with friends in the sunshine, while the inevitable shortcomings of our first wheels are forgotten.
Forget convertibles: Citroen's new C3 Pluriel is more like a transformer. For a fraction under £12,000, the French firm is giving you a three-door hatchback, a 2CV- like sun saloon, a cabrio, a full roadster and even a pick-up for good measure.
If there is one model that has kept Citroen's ageing Saxo alive for nearly seven years, it's the VTR. While the hair-raising VTS supermini was the version performance fans craved, the cheaper VTR attracted more buyers.
