Style, safety, security and technological innovation, combined with great value for money, are the hallmarks of Citroen’s ‘55’-plate collection this September.
The distinctive Citroen style is evident in a range that has been almost entirely renewed in the last three years. At the same time, top results in the Euro NCAP crash tests and British Insurance Car Security Awards are testimony to the commitment that has made Citroen’s range one of the safest and most secure of any mainstream manufacturer.
With the recent launch of the baby C1, the Company offers probably the widest choice of superminis available from any one manufacturer, but it also has one of the most modern ranges around, with technologically advanced larger models like the New C4, New Look C5 and C8 providing drivers with a real alternative to rival designs.
And customers shopping around for a new car this September shouldn’t forget to look out for Citroen’s latest tempting range of special offers*.
Instantly engaging, the cute and lovable Citroen C1 city car features equally attractive recommended retail prices. Starting at £6,495, this brand new baby of the range is £600 less than the entry-level Ford Ka.
It is easy to see why Auto Express voted Citroen’s C1 its Best Budget Car of 2005, alongside the 107 and Aygo. It is brimming with a host of impressive ‘big car’ features, including variable power steering, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), twin airbags, Cornering Stability Control and an MP3 compatible CD player.
The C1 is available in three and five-door body styles, has two trim levels and a choice of engines - a new 1.0i petrol engine and an ultra-economical 1.4HDi diesel engine, returning CO2 emissions of just 109 g/km. The C1 further benefits from a 4 star Euro NCAP rating and a lowest possible Group 1 insurance rating for the petrol models.
The street smart Citroen C2 has taken on the mantle of the much-loved Saxo, and is proving to be a firm favourite with a young audience who appreciate its sharp lines, fun performance, affordability and generous equipment levels.
Automatic air conditioning, heated leather seats, a telematics system with voice-activated radio/telephone/sat nav, automatic headlamps and wipers and cruise control can all be specified, whilst remote central locking, variable power steering, twin airbags plus ABS with EBD and Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) are standard across the range.
In total there are six engines and six trim levels, with recommended retail prices starting at £7,995 for the entry-level 1.1i L, rising to £11,995 for the hot 1.6i 16V VTS.
