The new Citroën C1 is a city car with a larger than life personality, that’s perfect for those who want to nip about town in a cool-looking and practical small car. It’s packed full of the latest technologies, low-running costs and plenty of personalisation to really make it yours.
There is no denying that the Citroën C1 is one of the most playful and fun city cars on the road. It has a positive presence thanks to its confident design and modern styling, which make it quite the head turner. The large, open front headlights and cheeky ‘eyebrow’ indicators add to the effect, and the vertical lights at either side of the grille and daytime LED lights make it bright and full of character.
You can personalise that character by injecting some of your own. There are 32 colour combinations available so there is something to suit everyone. There’s even an ‘Airscape’ roof option - an open canvas top that fully retracts and is controlled electronically, so that you can make the most of the fresh air outside of the city.
It’s really no surprise that the interior of the Citroën C1 is equally as modern, with a minimalistic and tidy style that still manages to provide everything you need for a very comfortable drive. At the heart of the C1 there is a seven-inch colour touchscreen providing every kind of infotainment you could possibly need. Plus simple to use air conditioning controls that allow you to make sure everyone is comfortable during your journey.
Colour coded feature surrounds give the interior a real pop of brightness and position memory front seats give added support and comfort on longer journeys. Jazzy seat trims are also available on the ‘Origins’ and ‘Urban Ride’ special editions.
It’s not just aesthetics that make the Citroën C1 beautiful, the highly efficient engine means that eco-aware customers can lessen their impact on the environment. Citroën’s high performance, low impact three-cylinder petrol engine is engineering at it’s finest and the already frugal fuel consumption is further assisted by Stop & Start technology which will minimise fuel usage even further.
The agile maneuverability of the Citroën C1 is achieved through the manual gear shift which provides responsive power and excellent handling, making it ideal for nipping through urban areas and snapping up small parking spots.
There is an abundance of safety and technology features that come as standard with the C1. So many it's quite puzzling how they all fit in such a compact car. Six airbags, an electronic stability programme, low tyre pressure monitoring system and optional speed limiter are just a few that will keep both driver and passengers safe on the road. In addition there is a whole host of driving aids which assist the driver in staying focussed and safe for the benefit of passengers, other motorists and even pedestrians.
A reversing camera assists squeezing into tight parking spots and will alert you to hidden obstructions, and hill start assist means navigating your way out of steep multi storey car parks will be smooth and easy. Once on the road, there is a lane departure warning system to help keep the driver focussed, speed sign recognition to ensure you are aware of the maximum speed you should be travelling, and an active city brake system which detects vehicles braking at speed in front of you.
