A compact runner with a big personality, the new Citroën C1 is the perfect partner for getting around town. With its modest dimensions and tight turning circle, it navigates streets and slips into small parking spaces with ease – meaning you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride.
The Citroën C1’s character shines through its exterior styling, with bold, rounded shapes and sleek lines contributing to a fresh, funky feel. Oval headlamps are complemented by high-mounted LED lights, and the model’s short bonnet sweeps up to a raked windscreen. The overall aesthetic is finished to perfection by a striking palette of body colours, with contrasting roof and mirror options on selected trims. And with the chance to select a soft-top version for open-air thrills, this is a car that can be personalised to reflect your unique tastes.
The interior of the C1 can be customised too, with coloured accents and a choice of upholstery providing a cheerful, playful ambience. The clean, contemporary dashboard places everything you need at your fingertips, with the multi-function steering wheel offering further practicality. For a small car, the C1 is surprisingly spacious too; not only is there ample room for four to sit in comfort, the boot also offers up to 780 litres for cargo, enabling you to carry more when necessary.
A city car should be nippy by nature, and the Citroën C1 is certainly that. Its VTi 72 petrol engine is sharp enough to ensure you can keep pace with the traffic and can be paired with manual or automatic transmission depending on the model variant. Fuel economy is impressive at up to 55mpg, while emissions of as low as 85g/km ensure running costs remain low.
Behind the wheel, you’ll find the C1 responsive and quick, with accurate steering and soft suspension that smooths out the worst of road bumps. It holds its own on the motorway too, tackling higher speeds with composure and control.
A truly relaxed drive is achieved with the help of advanced safety and technological features. Depending on your chosen trim, the Citroën C1 offers cutting-edge equipment such as a reversing camera to help you in and out of particularly tricky parking spots, as well as Mirror Screen, which enables you to connect your smartphone to the multimedia system for safe and convenient use of apps and music streaming.
There’s plenty on offer where safety is concerned too. Six airbags come as standard, alongside Electronic Stability Programme and a tyre pressure monitor. Options such as Active City Brake enhance protection, preventing you from getting too close to the vehicle ahead.
