Citroën C1

(2014 - present)

The Citroën C1 is a small city-car class hatchback, available in either three-door or five-door form. it also has the option of a full-length fabric sunroof, called Airscape. The current model is the second generation, which was launched in 2014.

The C1 is essentially identical to the Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo, with the three models developed together and built at the same factory in the Czech Republic. It has been speculated that, when the current model ends production (expected to be in 2021), it will be replaced by an electric model with no petrol-engined version available.

The Citroën C1 has received generally positive reviews from the UK motoring media, although its overall Expert Rating falls a long way short of the class-leading Hyundai i10. It has been praised for its low running costs and overall driving dynamics, but criticised for a lack of refinement compared to newer rivals.
