A stylish and a sporty option.

Citroen has added two special edition versions to its C1 range, which has received a minor refresh.

The first of which is a collaboration with fashion brand Elle. The C1 Elle, which follows the similar C3 Elle, adds a number of styling tweaks to the popular supermini.

The exterior is finished in what Citroen is calling an 'exclusive two-tone Nude body colour' (no, we don't know either), with a Caldera Black roof finish. Two other colour schemes are available as well – Lipizzan White with a Gallium Grey Roof, and Caldera Black again with a Gallium Grey roof. All options come with Caldera Black side mirror covers and an aluminium Elle badge on each front door.

On the inside the appearance has been enhanced too, with exclusive light grey ‘Wave’ upholstery is highlighted with Cherry Pink stitching. The multimedia panel surround and the dashboard are both finished in Anodised Rose, while the baseplate of the gear lever and the centre wheel caps are finished in Gloss Black. What's more, the floor mats come with Cherry Pink on their border.

The second special edition C1 is the C1 Urban Ride, which adds yet more personalisation options.

The rugged and sporty Urban Ride adds Gloss Black door mirror housings, the tinted side and rear windows and a new body kit, which includes matte black fender flares. There's also 15-inch Black ‘Planet’ alloy wheels matched with the contrasting Sunrise Red wheel centres. Coulours are a standard Lipizzan White body colour, as well as the all new metallic optional exterior colours Calvi Blue, Gallium Grey, Carlinite Grey or Caldera Black. All colours come with a special rear quarter graphic with grey geometric patterns.

Both models are based on the top-of-the-range regular Flair trim level, which comes with electronically heated door mirrors, reversing camera, DAB digital radio / MP3 audio system with steering-wheel mounted controls, Bluetooth hands-free kit, and USB outlet.

The C1 Elle adds the Automatic Pack, which includes automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights. Citroën C1 is also connected featuring a 7-inch touchscreen tablet and enhanced Mirror Screen technology now compatible with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto and MirrorLink.

Options also available for the Urban Sport include the Automatic Plus Pack including Automatic air conditioning and automatic high beam function and Keyless entry and start, and Active City Brake which also brings Active Lane Departure Warning system and Speed limit recognition system. 

Both cars come with Citroen's VTi 72, Euro 6.2 compliant, petrol engine with manual gearbox.

Order books for both open on May 1, with the Elle starting at £12,705, while the Urban Sport is slightly less at £12,225.
