New Citroen C1 2014 prices and specs

Prices and details of the new Citroen C1 ahead of its release date in July 2014

Citroen has announced Citroen C1 UK prices and trim levels ahead of the car going on sale here in July 2014. The new C1 was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, along with its sister cars the Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo.

Citroen C1 2014 details

The new Citroen C1 will offer a range of improvements over the existing model, including a more striking design, a brighter interior, more economical engines and better levels of technology.

Citroen C1 2014 engines

The Citroen C1 range is available with a choice of three latest-generation petrol engines - the 1.0-litre VTi 68, the e-VTi 68 Airdream or the 1.2-litre VTi 82 Puretech engine.

The entry-level and mid-range models will only be available with the VTi 68 engine and a five-speed manual gearbox, while the range-toppping Flair version will be available with all three engines and a choice of either five-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearboxes. The e-VTi 68 Airdream is manual only on all Citroen C1 models.

Citroen C1 2014 release date

The all-new Citroen C1 will go on sale alongside the new Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo (with which it shares many of its parts) in July 2014. The car will be available in three trim levels - Touch, Feel and Flair.

Citroen C1 2014 price

Prices for the new Citroen C1 start at £8,245 for the entry-level three-door Touch model. Prices for the mid-range three-door and five-door Feel are £9,495 and £9,895 respectively. As the best-specced Flair model is available in both three and five door form, and with three different engines, prices range from £10,185 to £11,085.

The convertible Citroen C1 Airscape is available in five different specifications, starting at £10,345, rising to £11,935 for the five-door, automatic VTi 68 Flair model.

New Citroen C1 2014 specs

As well as updated engines, the C1 gets freshly designed headlights and brightly coloured interiors to give it a more exciting look both inside and out. The soft-top convertible version of the new car is called the Citroen C1 Airscape.

The Citroen C1 convertible’s roof comes in Sunrise Red, black or grey, but both the soft-top and hatchback models have the same eight exterior colours (four of which are metallic) to choose from. Choices come in the form of Caldéra Black, Gallium Grey, Carlinite Grey, Olive Brown, Lipizan White, Smalt Blue, Scarlet Red and Sunrise Red.

Trim levels come in the form of the entry-level Touch, mid-range Feel and top-of-the-range Flair. The Citroen C1 Touch gets anti-lock brakes, power steering, remote contol central locking, electric front windows, six airbags and LED daytime running lights as standard.

The Citroen C1 Feel adds air-conditioning, a digitial radio, a seven-inch touchscreen, steering mounted controls and body coloured door mirrors and door handles, while Citroen C1 Flair models get even more extra equipment, including larger alloy wheels, a camera for reversing, a leather steering wheel and tinted rear windows.

The new seven-inch multimedia interface available on the C1 Feel and Flair models is equipped with Mirror Screen technology, which allows you to connect your smartphone and control its apps through the interface – as soon as you’re hooked up, you can access radio, satellite-navigation and the car’s onboard computer.

Optional extras will include keyless entry, automatic air-conditioning, automatic headlights, and leather upholstery.

Practicality is impressive for such a small car, with cubbyholes scattered throughout, and a glove box large enough to fit a one-litre bottle. You get a 196-litre boot, which increases to 750-litres when the rear seats are folded down.

A Citroen C1 concept car called the Swiss & Me was shown at the Geneva Motor Show, sporting extra styling touches on top of all the standard features of the Citroen C1. The Swiss & Me was given a pearl white body with a red roof bearing the Swiss flag – a suitable theme to celebrate the C1's world debut.
