The spirited new Citroën C1 is the latest generation model in a line that has long been loved by drivers and industry experts alike. Making its debut only recently at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, it's already started receiving rave reviews. Perhaps it's because the amount of effort the French design team has put in is immediately evident.
City chic are the two words that spring to mind with this nimble car. It's been designed specifically for the rigours of city driving, and with a host of body colours – and even a soft-top option – it looks fantastic. With user-friendly in-car technology, rewardingly low running costs, and tailored interior comfort the C1 scores brilliantly all round.
The fun visual impact of the C1 is what buyers will notice first. With a compact, curvy body shape and distinct Citroën features – such as the stylish two-part headlamps with round insets – the Citroën flair is instantly recognisable. Keeping up with automotive trends, in fact raising the bar, the C1 offers a dazzling array of body colour personalisation choices. A vibrant palette ranges from Sunrise Red to Smalt Blue, and the roof can be individually coloured to create a fashionable bi-tone colour effect. Wheel covers and alloy wheels have been designed to make a statement, and drivers will enjoy the playful 14” Star wheel covers as much as the two-tone 15” Planet alloy wheels.
The interior of the C1 upholds Citroën’s reputation for designing comfortable, clutter-free cabins. The central console can be installed with an impressive 7” touch-screen, which provides drivers with all the multimedia functions you would expect – and operates like an exquisitely futuristic on-board computer. A range of cool, subtle interior upholsteries is available, such as the Grey Mica Cloth or the refined Black leather. For the party animals out there the colourful Light Zebra cloth will no doubt be a favourite.
The C1 also impresses beneath the bonnet. With agile turning circle and rapid acceleration, the C1 also returns brilliant fuel economy. Operating at up to 74.3mpg drivers will be able to enjoy driving the frugal C1 even more, and low emissions of 88g/km of CO2 demonstrate Citroën’s green attitude.
You’ll find the new Citroën C1 available now at the Hidsons Citroën dealerships in Kent. Come down today to our Rainham showroom, where one of our in-house experts will be happy to tell you more about this wonderful car.
