Citroen Updates UK C1 Range with New Trims and Pricing

It may not be apparent at first, but the Citroen C1, along with the identical Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo are some of the most fun little cars on sale today, even if all are really showing their age, despite numerous nip and tuck attempts; a replacement is on its way.

Now, the Dual Chevron’s offering has just been updated again, with featuring revised trims and specific options for the UK market.

As you’d expect, there’s nothing major going on, but whenever a manufacturer offers more kit as standard, I see it as a good thing, and it is our duty to report. The little C1’s UK lineup will consist of three trim levels, two of which are new.

Aside from the entry-level VT variant, which starts at £8,095, there’s now the midrange £9,670 Edition model and the Platinum range topper which will set you back £10,345. The latter also now offers an improved self-shifting gearbox dubbed Efficient Tronic Gearbox which replaces the sluggish old EGS. With it specified, the price is £11,245.

Still, even the most Spartan trim gets ABS and stability control, as well as front side and curtain airbags, auxiliary and MP3 sockets and rear Isofix mounts. Go up to Edition, and LED daytime running lights, 14-inch alloys, a rev counter and electric windows among others are added. Platinum adds a ‘Look Pack’ (Carlinite Grey roof, Carlinite Grey rear spoiler, Carlinite Grey door mirrors, black side rubbing strips), Bluetooth connectivity, tinted rear glass and glossy interior plastics.

Whichever you go for, it’s proven city transportation that is also surprisingly engaging to drive, thanks in part to the peppy motor with unusually long gears, compliant ride and inherent lack of grip of its skinny tires that look like space-savers…
