The Citroen C1Published 4 June 2005
Citroen is proud to announce the arrival on 1 June 2005 of a new baby in its supermini family - the all-new C1 - weighing in from just £6,495.
Small in appearance, but big on character, the fun and funky Citroen C1 offers modern, attractive styling, grown-up car safety features and is perfect for life around town, yet remains extremely affordable and inexpensive to run.
Citroen’s newcomer comes with a standard specification that includes features such as variable power-assisted steering, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Cornering Stability Control, twin airbags and an MP3 compatible CD player.
In fact, against its key competitors in the city car class, the Citroen C1 tops the charts for in-car entertainment, handling and safety features - it has been awarded a 4 star EuroNCAP rating for occupant protection - as well as performance and fuel economy. At the same time, it also delivers the lowest CO2 emissions figures along with a lowest possible insurance rating of 1E for petrol models.
The Citroen C1 is available at launch in three- and five-door body styles, with a new three cylinder 1.0i petrol engine, two trim levels - Vibe and Rhythm - and a competitive recommended retail price tag that starts at £6,495, around £600 less than the entry-level Ford Ka. A super frugal new HDi 55 diesel engine will join the range later in the summer.
