The Citroen C1 has been given a makeover for 2012 and will be released in the UK in April this year.
Enhancements include lowering the CO2 emissions below the 99 g/km figure to ensure £0 (VED) car tax, LED daytime running lights and adding the option of an Electronic Gearbox System with steering-mounted paddles
The New Citroen C1 is powered by a three-cylinder petrol engine which produces 68hp and Citroen claim 65.7mpg on the combined cycle. The manual versions emits 99g/km of CO2, which makes it exempt from the London Congestion Charge and VED. The Electronic Gearbox System (EGS) version produces 104 g/km and returns 62.8 mpg.
