The Citroen C1 is an irresistible city car proposition. There’s a strong sense of character, which starts with the C1’s clever two-part headlights and flows back to the rear square 3D effect lights. Inside, you are greeted by a driver-focused cabin awash with quirky details and technology. All models get a high-definition 7” touchscreen system and electric windows, while Feel trim adds air conditioning and Flair trim adds a rear reversing camera. Or, you can go for the new for 2016 Furio trim, which adds a sporty body kit and larger alloys. But whichever C1 you choose, you can expect an excellent driving experience, courtesy of the C1’s short turning circle, precise steering, good ride quality and willing engines. And perhaps best of all, the Citroen C1 will return up to 74.3mpg with CO2 emissions as low as 88 g/km.
Stylish for the city
The Citroen C1 is full of character. Its clever two-part headlights and rear square 3D effect lights give it a chic style. Inside, you’ll always feel welcome and inspired, because of the C1’s bright ambience and colourful trims.
The Citroen C1 only weighs 855kg dry, and coupled with a short and precise steering rack, that makes for incredibly nimble handling which inspires confidence around the city or on country roads.
A willing performer
The Citroen C1 is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine that’s designed to be revved. Or, you can choose a more powerful 1.2-litre engine, which boosts performance considerably thanks to the C1’s low weight.
Go for the VTi 68 manual engine and you can get 68.9mpg combined, or up to 73.3 mpg combined with start and stop technology. The 3-door and 5-door models share the same economy figures too.
