As part of its Centenary celebration, Citroen has unveiled the final two models in its ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition range for the UK, namely the C1 and the C3 Aircross. Both models are available to order, with production scheduled to commence next month.

All ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition models feature special bronze colors and graphics, as well as other various styling enhancements both inside and out.

C1 ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition

Priced at £13,830 ($17,846) and available in VTi 72 S&S manual 5-door spec, Citroen’s city car features non-metallic Lipizzan White paint as standard, with Gallium Grey, Carlinite Grey and Caldera Black metallic paints as optional extras. Other features include 15-inch Black ‘Planet’ wheels and a standard Black bi-tone roof.

Inside, there is Grey Heather cloth upholstery for the seats with gold stitched details, while a unique ‘Origins’ Color Pack adds bronze tones to the air vents, center console fascia and gear lever surround. This C1 is based on the Flair trim, to which it adds special carpet mats, custom logos and a wide range of onboard tech features such as a reversing camera, Hill Start Assist, 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Mirror Link, automatic air conditioning and automatic lights.

C3 Aircross ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition

This C3 Aircross is available as a PureTech 110 S&S 6-speed manual model and it starts at £19,355 ($24,975). Its body is painted Natural White and it gets a Black bi-tone roof just like its smaller sibling. Other available colors include Cosmic Silver, Platinum Grey and Ink Black metallic.

Standard kit includes 16-inch Black ‘Matrix’ alloy wheels, an ‘Origins’ Color Pack (again like the C1), exclusive ‘Origins’ decals and bespoke grey cloth upholstery for the interior with gold top-stitching.

Speaking of the interior, the C3 Aircross ‘Origins’ Collector’s Edition is based on the Feel trim level, which means that it comes with Citroen Connect Box with SOS & Assistance, Citroen Connect Nav, Mirror Screen with Android Auto, Mirror Link and Apple CarPlay. It also gets rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, automatic air conditioning and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
