Special edition Citroën C1 Urban Ride announced

Citroën has revealed a special edition of the C1 that boosts style and luxury

Citroën has revealed a new special edition of the Citroën C1 city car. Based on the range-topping ‘Flair’ trim level, the Urban Ride gets an array of additional styling upgrades and optional extras. Arriving in showrooms this summer, the new model has a price of £12,680.

The Urban Ride model gets a number of styling upgrades to distinguish it from the standard C1, including 15-inch alloy wheels, wider matte-black wheel arches with a choice of six paint colours, and an optional contrasting black roof. Buyers can also spec an electric sliding soft-top, giving it Citroën’s ‘Airscape’ body style for an extra £930.

The interior of the C1 Urban Ride also receives a number of upgrades, including two-tone upholstery, decals, and white trim on the dashboard with contrasting black trim on the gear-stick surround and air vents.

The Urban Ride variant gets all of the standard kit found on the Shine trim level, including a reversing camera, electric and heated door mirrors, a seven-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system.

Only one engine is available for the C1 Urban Ride, namely a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 70bhp with a five-speed manual gearbox. Fuel economy is claimed to be 53.2mpg under the WLTP cycle with a CO2 emissions figure of 93g/km.

Additional options for the Citroën C1 Urban Ride include automatic air conditioning with automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, metallic paint and keyless entry and start. Buyers can also spec Citroën's Active City Brake suite as part of a package including lane-departure warning and traffic-sign recognition systems.
