Citroen C1 Furio Gets A Sporty Look For Less

The C1 is hardly the most performance-oriented model Citroën has ever offered. But at least it can look the part, in part.

Launched in the UK is the new C1 Furio. It’s based on Citroën’s version of the same tiny hatchback that Peugeot sells as the 108 and Toyota as the Aygo. The Furio edition starts out as the three-door hatchback in mid-level Feel trim, but sets itself apart with blacked-out 15-inch alloys, a sporty exterior graphics package, red mirrors, rear faux diffuser, center exhaust, grey cloth upholstery and a tachometer.

The standard engines still apply, which means either an 82-horsepower inline-three or a 68-horse diesel. That means it doesn’t quite have the bite to back up its little bark, but it also remains affordable to buy and insure for young drivers especially.

Pricing starts at just £10,855, which works out to $14,223 at current exchange rates, or about the price of a Nissan Versa Note. So while there are cheaper new cars on the market, there aren’t many, and you can bet the others won’t look quite as sporty.
