Citroën Drops More Photos of the C1, Watch the Geneva Presentation

The second-generation of the Franco-Japanese trio of city cars are upon us, and while they are more differentiated than before, the two French twins (Peugeot 108 and Citroën C1) look more similar to one another compared to the Toyota Aygo, for which designers at least tried to make it look different.

Now that Citroën has unveiled the C1 at the Geneva Motor Show, we can take a look at a more comprehensive photo gallery of the city car. However, the most anticipated part of the car, the interior, only appears in two shots. Still, those are enough to realize that the cabin of the C1 is identical to that of the Peugeot 108, minus the badging.

Just like the Peugeot, the C1 is available with a 7-inch Touch Driver Interface and Mirror Screen technology used to copy and run smartphone apps from the touchscreen. The little Citroën can be fitted with keyless entry and start, as well as a reversing camera and hill-start assist.

As a quick reminder, the new Citroën C1 is available in three- and five-door versions, with an open-top bodystyle called Airscape also on offer. It features a 196-liter (6.92 cu-ft) boot, with volume increasing to 780 liters (27.5 cu-ft) with the rear seats folded.

Citroën will offer the C1 with two 3-cylinder petrol models, the Toyota-sourced 68hp 1.0-liter e-VTi 68 Airdream engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and featuring Stop&Start technology, and the 82hp 1.2-liter VTi 82. The latter produces 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque and averages 4.3 l/100 km (54.7 mpg US), with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km. The 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 11 seconds.
