Citroen has announced a UK price and trim levels for the funky C1.
Last month Citroen used the Geneva Motor Show to debut the city-friendly C1. Now it has given us the lowdown on its UK price, trim options and when it will go on sale.
The Citroen C1 will be available as a three or five-door in either Touch, Feel or Flair specification. Touch, which is the entry-level offering, gives you power steering, remote central locking, electric front windows, six airbags, MP3 compatible sound system, USB socket and LED daytime running lights.
Feel adds air-conditioning, DAB digital radio, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display that can mirror what’s on your smartphone using MirrorScreen, steering wheel mounted controls and body coloured door mirrors and handles.
At the top is the Citroen C1 Flair, which adds 15-inch ‘Planet’ alloy wheels, speed limiter, rev counter, reversing camera, leather steering wheel, tinted rear windows and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors. Keyless entry, automatic headlights and black leather upholstery are optional extras.
Those who want the wind in their hair can go for the Airscape version and its retractable roof, which is only available on the Feel and Flair models. Expect to pay a premium for the privilege.
The Citroen C1 is powered by one of two dinky petrol engines, a VTi 68 or VTi 82. The former is available with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed clutchless Efficient Tronic Gearbox, while the latter comes with a 5-speed manual. The VTi 82 is said to boast 65mpg and 99g/km of CO2 emissions.
Those of an aesthetic disposition will be pleased to know there is a choice of colours, four of which are metallic, three wheel designs and three fabric colours for the Airscape roof.
Bottom of the range is the 3-door Citroen C1 Touch VTi 68 manual, starting from £8,245. At the top is the 5-door C1 Airscape Flair VTi 82 manual, which costs from £11,785. The car will go on sale in July 2014.
