2017 Citroen C1 Review


Launched in 2014, the Citroen C1, Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo are the product of a city car collaboration between three car companies. Available as a three- or five-door hatchback, or an Airscape version with folding fabric roof, the C1 is funky-looking, with a plethora of personalisation options. As a sub-£10,000 city car, its rivals include the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Skoda Citigo and Hyundai i10.


Body Style: Hatchback             Seats: 4                  MRP from £8,715 to £12,995 


Did you know? The Citroen C1 is built alongside its cousins, the Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo, in the city of Kolín, Czech Republic.

Verdict: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7.3/10)

The Citroen C1 is a small car with a cheeky face that’s cheap to run and competitively priced. With its thrummy three-cylinder engines, it’s not the most refined runabout on the market and it doesn’t scream quality. But if you like to personalise your pride and joy, and rear-seat space isn’t such a big issue, then the fun and funky C1 could be for you.
