The Citroën C1 makes an excellent first car or a nimble city slicker, and it’s a brilliant introduction to Citroën ownership. This model may have a small footprint, yet it knows how to make a big impression.
The fun-loving C1 is brimming with personality. It'll only take one look to see why this smiling supermini is so popular. Take your pick from three and five-door variants, or how about the Airscape model with a retractable fabric roof? It’s ideal if you like a bit of open-air driving. Opt for the Feel or Flair trim and you can specify a two-tone paint scheme which is a great way to take personalisation to the next level.
The Citroën C1 boasts a small and elegant cabin, which is intelligently laid out and provides excellent visibility through a broad windscreen. Customisation options are plentiful too, with an array of optional colour packs that allow you to put your own twist on your surroundings.
On board, you’ll enjoy a surprising amount of space for such a compact car, including a generously-sized boot with room aplenty for the weekly shop or your weekend bags. If you need more space, simply fold the rear seats flat. On Feel and Flair models, they also split, so you can accommodate a rear passenger and squeeze in some extra luggage too.
A selection of turbocharged petrol engines are available to power your Citroën C1. The 1.0-litre VTi boasts 68bhp, while the upgraded PureTech 1.2 has 82bhp to give you an extra boost. Both emit under 100g/km of CO2, while returning over 65mpg, so you can keep running costs to a minimum.
Beautifully lightweight steering and a small footprint make this the perfect city car. It’s never been simpler to thread your way through the city streets. The 1.0-litre’s ETG automatic gearbox will make your life even easier because it’ll take care of the gear changes for you.
All Citroën C1s are kitted out with six airbags for all-round protection, plus hill-start control to prevent rollback when you start off on steep inclines. There’s also a state-of-the-art electronic stability programme, which keeps the car steady in tricky road conditions. As for the handy ISOFIX anchor points, they make fitting a child seat straight forward and secure.
Across the line-up you’ll also find an array of in-car technology designed to keep you informed and entertained on the move. There is a MP3-compatible stereo with USB sockets in the cabin, plus Touch Drive touchscreen on Feel and Flair models. Through this you can access your smartphone handsfree, stream music and read messages effortlessly.
