The affordable Citroën C1 is also extremely cheap to run, no matter which engine you opt for. This characterful city car is fun to drive and its compact dimensions enable it to slot into tight spaces with ease.
The C1 is available in three and five-door iterations, and Touch, Feel and Flair trim levels. A smart front fascia sports attractive elliptical headlights and bumper-integrated LED daytime running lights. A ‘star’ motif adorns 14-inch wheel covers, which are standard issue, while Flair grades are fitted with 15-inch alloy wheels.
Feel trims feature body-coloured door handles and door mirrors.
A four-seat cabin provides the driver with a height-adjustable steering wheel and power-assisted steering. Other standard features include power-operated front windows, a 12-volt socket and numerous cubby spaces. Boot capacity begins at 196 litres (seats up) and can be expanded to 780 litres (rear seats folded).
Feel grades add a height-adjustable driver’s seat, 50/50 split-folding rear seats and air-conditioning.
Available as standard with entry-level Touch trims is a 1.0-litre 68bhp petrol engine, paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. This is the most fuel-efficient option available for the C1, returning as much as 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 95g/km.
A 1.2-litre 82bhp alternative provides added potency yet still manages to achieve up to 65.7mpg and a 99g/km CO2 emission figure, and is available with Feel and Flair grades.
An MP3-compatible sound system includes an RDS radio and USB connectivity. Upgrading to Feel grades adds a four-speaker system, comprising DAB digital radio, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity and a seven-inch touchscreen.
Safety features include Electronic Stability Control, Anti-Lock Braking System, Cornering Stability Control, Hill-Start Assist, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, ISOFIX mounting points and multiple airbags.
