How special is this Special Edition?

As for interior features, there’s a reversing camera, a 4-speaker MP3 audio system/DAB digital radio, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a multi-function steering wheel – all standard. If you can spend a little extra though, you could also get the Automatic Pack Plus (automatic air-conditioning, automatic headlights, keyless entry and start) and Active City Brake (Lane Departure Warning, Speed Sign Recognition).
Powering the Citroen C1 Urban Ride is a 72 PS (71 HP) 3-cylinder petrol engine with Stop & Start technology, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
