A thoroughly modern car with a vibrant personality, the C1 is fun to drive and cheap to run. This compact car is equally at home on city streets and country lanes, with agile handling and plenty of technology to optimise your driving experience.
The C1 is available as a standard supermini and an Airscape model, which has an electrically folding fabric roof that runs the full length of the cabin. Eight two-tone contrasting colour combinations and fresh styling ensure that this car makes a great first impression.
Distinctive split-level headlights give the C1 an expressive face and there are LED daytime running lights integrated into the front bumper. The range-topping Flair model has 15-inch diamond-tipped alloy wheels along with a chrome window surround.
Brightly coloured with trims that match the exterior, the cabin of the C1 creates a cheerful environment in which to enjoy the fun of the drive. The streamlined dashboard is designed to be sleek, stylish and easy to use, with ergonomic controls and a logical layout that lets you drive instinctively. There is plenty of space for three passengers as well as the driver, and the 196-litre boot can carry plenty of luggage or shopping. To improve practicality even further, there are an additional ten clever storage compartments throughout the cabin.
You can choose between two petrol engines; a 1.0-litre VTi unit and a 1.2-litre PureTech unit. The larger engine develops 82bhp and, as the C1 is so light, this translates into lively and energetic acceleration. The supple ride and light steering makes the C1 comfortable and effortless to drive for any length of time, and it is also highly manoeuvrable around tight bends and in small parking spaces. Both engines offer outstanding fuel efficiency; opt for the 1.2-litre unit for returns of up to 65mpg or the 1.0-litre to achieve 68mpg.
The C1 is fitted with ABS and Electronic Stability Control as standard to ensure you stay in control at all times and help avoid accidents.
There is also a tyre pressure monitoring system and ISOFIX child seat mounting points. All C1 models come with six airbags and pyrotechnic pre-tensioning front seatbelts. Touch, Feel and Flair models all come with hill-start assist so you can take steep roads and multi-story car parks in your stride. The range-topping Flair trim also includes a reversing camera to reduce the chance of a low-speed collision when parking.
You can stay entertained and connected on every journey in the Citroën C1, with plenty of in-car infotainment as standard on every model. The Touch trim includes an audio system with MP3 and USB compatibility. Upgrade to the Feel or Flair variants to enjoy a seven-inch touchscreen with DAB digital radio, Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls. Air conditioning is also standard on both of these variants so you can stay comfortable whatever the weather.
