If you’re trying to look fashionable this Spring and you’re partial to city cars like the Citroen C1, then you’ll be happy to know that the automaker has given the Urban Ride special edition model a new Scarlet Red exterior, an optional contrasting Caldera Black roof and more.

Prices start from £13,180 ($17,342) in the UK for the regular model, while the C1 Airscape Urban Ride costs upwards of £14,110 ($18,566). Order books are now open, with the cars scheduled to arrive in dealerships this June.

How special is this Special Edition?

The Citroen C1 Urban Ride comes with wheel arch extensions, Urban Ride decals on the rear doors, special graphic stripes on the rear quarter panels, Lipizzan White door mirrors and 15-inch Black ‘Planet’ wheels with black center caps. The Scarlet Red and Lipizzan White body colors are standard, unlike the optional contrasting Caldera Black roof.

Other optional body colors include: Calvi Blue, Gallium Grey, Caldera Black and Carlinite Grey.

Inside, there are new Metropolitan Grey and White ‘Urban Ride’ cloth seats with red top-stitching, plus custom front and rear protective mats with the Urban Ride logo. Meanwhile, the Urban Ride Color Pack is standard and adds Anodized White trim around the infotainment system and on the upper dashboard, to go with the Gloss Black finish on the gear knob and air vent surrounds, plus the ‘Urban Ride’ dashboard graphic.

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.
