Our picks from the Paris Motor Show

This week on The Root we bring you the highlights we’ve picked out from the Paris Motor Show which has been taking place for the last week or so and still has a few days left to run.

Yep, some ridiculously exotic Ferraris, Mercedes and a Maybach all with price tags high enough to make your eyes water are on display – but as always, we’re keeping it real with our sensible hat on.

Citroen C3

If you’ve always fancied the Cactus’ clever Airbumps, they’re now available as an option on the funkily-styled new C3 which has a classy-looking face, uniquely-coloured roof, snazzy alloy wheels, jazzy two-tone interior and amazingly comfy seats. Citroen’s best-selling model will only be sold as a 5-door, the ConnectedCam system is like a GoPro and dashcam in one and takes pics and videos before and after a crash, and the engines are set to be really light on your purse or wallet.
