Citroen C1: a brilliant little car coming April 2012


If you're looking for a nice, small car that can navigate both busy city centres and long-haul journeys up and down the country in comfort and style, then you should look no further than the newest release to hit the forecourts in April. That's because Citroen is adding a redesigned C1 to the list of cars for sale in the UK, following a much-promoted makeover that should bring the nippy little hatchback up-to-date with the rest of the fleet, as well as the world at large.

Enhancements include the lowering of CO2 emissions below the 99 g/km figure to make sure that it qualified for free car tax and congestion charge costs, as well as LED daytime running lights to counteract any crazy changes in weather or the environment at large. Additionally, there'll also be the inclusion of the popular Electronic Gearbox System with steering-mounted paddles as an optional extra, should you want to customise your vehicle.

While it's certainly not the most powerful car you can buy this year, it is one of the most cost-effective - perfect for people looking to get away from often-extortionate petrol prices. The Citroen C1 is powered by a three-cylinder petrol engine and churns out 68hp, though this small output means it can do no less than 65.7mpg on its combined cycle. While the automatic version of the car will not qualify for the zero per cent tax rate, the Electronic Gearbox System (EGS) version still produces just 104 g/km and 62.8 mpg - extremely impressive for such a cheap entry-level car.

The Citroen C1 will be available soon from Evans Halshaw who sell new and used cars in the UK.
