CITROEN C1 Car Review
Grown up transport for the daily commute!
The Citroen C1 has the cheeky face of a Disney cartoon character with big round headlights like a bugs eyes.
But Citroen’s small city car functions perfectly as grown up transport for the daily commute. At just over 3.4 litres long its perfect for nipping in and out of city traffic and easy to park in tight car park spaces.
The Citroen C1 is actually one of motoring triplets, being identical to the Peugeot 108 and the Toyota Aygo, apart from the badges, lights and grille, plus you get different trim on the interior.
And as they all share the same 1.0 and 1.2 litre engines it really all comes down to your own personal preference of brands or the real reason when you buy a city car…the cheapest price.
Citroen has the trump card here as the French brand is known for its value for money, and it will be the cheapest of the three models, which have all just been replaced by the new version. The 1.0 litre three cylinder engine is perfectly adequate and the little Citroen is easy and quite good fun to drive around town. It’s also easy on the pocket with between 60 and just over 70 mpg and its cheap to insure and tax, making it a painless car to own and run. The interior is pretty basic and rear seats are strictly for small kids and the boot just about manages the weekly shop.
