New Car: 2015 Citroen C1

This is the first official pictures of the bold new Citroen C1, which will star at the Geneva Motor Show.

As before, it’ll be based on the same underpinnings, and built in the same factory, as sister city cars from Peugeot and Toyota. Distinctive styling will set the models apart, and the Citroen looks to be braver than the new Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo – both of which will also debut at Geneva.

It borrows upright LED running lamps from the DS3, narrow lights from the C4 Cactus and big, round headlamps that look similar to those on the Nissan Juke.

The C1 will be available as a three or five-door, or as a new Airscape model with a peel-back roof – with the soft-top coming in red, black or grey. Fixed-roof cars will be offered in a choice of eight paint finishes, with a contrasting roof option.

The newcomer is only a fraction longer than the car it replaces, at 3.46 metres long, but Citroen is saying it has space for four adults and a 196-litre boot – that’s 57 litres more than the old car.

The newcomer is also lighter than many of its rivals, tipping the scales at 840kg. When powered by the 82bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine, it can go from 0-60mph in 11 seconds and return 60mpg. There’s a 68bhp engine, too, plus an optional five-speed auto box.

A range of new technology includes a seven-inch touchscreen, featuring Mirror Screen. This essentially allows drivers to control certain smartphone apps through the car, rather than their mobile. Heated seats, keyless go and a reversing camera will also be available.

The new Citroen C1 is set to go on sale in July, priced at around £9,000. For more details click here.
