Citroën introduces a raft of upgrades to its littlest C1 make it, the automaker says, more agile, city-friendly and frugal.

Spacious and comfortable, stylish and economical, the new Citroën C1 is a compact car designed to make you smile every time you drive. Both inside and out, form and function are in perfect harmony, wherever you look.

The exterior features elevated, rounded headlights that make the Citroën C1‘s cheerful face instantly recognisable, while the daytime-running LEDs, standard on Seduction models, give a dazzling cool stare.


Sitting behind the wheel of the Citroën C1, the view is instantly different.

Narrow, busy streets look wider. Parking spaces appear and gaps in traffic seem to grow. You also have full control with the cleverly placed controls, conveniently grouped close to the steering wheel. This makes it simple to concentrate on the road while still having control of everything inside.

And with the amazingly tight turning circle and standard variable power-assisted steering, the new Citroën C1 is perfectly adapted for urban life.

Once you’ve relaxed into your seat, you’ll quickly find that the new Citroën C1 is small where it matters and big where it counts. From the sizeable twin cupholders, electric front windows and plentiful storage compartments, you’ll have all of what you need and none of what you don’t.


And with a very spacious boot, and the flexibility to lower the rear seats, the new Citroën C1 can handle a fair load.

Despite its ingenious compactness, there is nothing minimal about the Citroën C1‘s safety features. With a very strong passenger compartment and carefully engineered crumple zones, its entire structure is designed to protect. There’s also the powerful anti-lock brakes and electronic brake force distribution (EBD), emergency braking assistance (EBA) as well as driver’s and front passenger’s airbags, standard across the range.

Wherever your destination may be, you‘ll always have a safe drive.

But not only is the new Citroën C1 safe, it is also environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient. The engine is well balanced to give you responsive performance, with CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km, and fuel consumption of only 3.7 litres/100km.


It’s efficiency without compromise, which means cleaner, greener driving that you can enjoy.

Ultra-economical, safe and stylish, with technology and design that make it unique, the new Citroën C1 is the perfect car for modern urban life.
