The Citroen C1 is a great city car. Fun to drive, clever design touches, economic to run, and very competitively priced – it’s no wonder Citroen’s shifted more than 600,000 of them. It’s a budget car with a stellar record that proves that economic motoring doesn’t have to be dull. In short, it’s a great little run-around.
Our Fuel & Go offer helps you to secure a new Citroen C1 with a low deposit and free insurance, or a contribution towards your deposit, so get a quote now on a new Citroen C1!
A popular choice for a first car, the CITROEN C1 HATCHBACK 1.0 VTi Feel 3dr comes with the following features as standard, plus many more – from only £197 per month with 1 year's free insurance!
The C1 is now onto its second facelift, available in three- or five-door models, both perfectly compact for urban driving. Handling is superb, and its cabin is better equipped than ever. If you’re looking for a hatchback that delivers across the board, and serves up some stylish French good looks, this could be the first car for you.
Citroen ditched the C1’s diesel engine in 2009, instead focusing on more frugal petrol units. You’ve got an array of 1.0 and 1.2-litre engines, all coming in at below 100g/km CO2 emissions – that means no road tax to pay until 2017. The latest C1 averages a not-to-be-sniffed-at 65.7mpg, delivering fuel costs of around £7 per 100 miles.
Insurance-wise, models from 2005 onwards span insurance groups 1 to 13 depending on how powerful a model you want to opt for.
It might look titchy from the outside, but the C1 is remarkably roomy inside. There’s decent room for your buddies in the back, but the boot space is limited. There’s a nifty Connecting Box Bluetooth and USB setup on some models, a nice 7” colour touchscreen on the mid-range Feel model, and alloys and reversing camera on the top-price Flair models. Steering is light and responsive, making it perfect for manoeuvring the city and nipping into tight parking spaces.
As standard on all models you’ll get stability control, Hill Start Assist and six airbags. The C1’s latest Euro NCAP rating is a solid four out of five stars, and the security kit includes an immobiliser and remote central locking.
