New Citroen C1 revealed

Set to make its debut at the 2012 Brussels Motor Show in January, the new Citroen C1 will be available in the UK in April.

Re-styled and with a more fuel economic engine, the new Citroen C1 also features higher levels of standard equipment and an updated interior.

The front end incorporates a new bumper design which also features LED daytime running lights and additional fog lights.

Measuring 3.4m long the C1 is the most compact car in the Citroen range and is available in both three and five door forms from launch. Folding rear seats mean that the C1's boot capacity ranges from from 139 litres to over 700 litres.

Powered by a three-cylinder petrol engine developing 68bhp the Citroen C1 returns 99g/km of CO2 and up to 65.7mpg. This equates to very low running costs and exemption from the London Congestion Charge. Available with a five-speed manual gearbox or an Electronic Gearbox System complete with steering-mounted paddle controls, the electronic system reduces fuel economy to 62.8mpg and increases emissions to 104g/km of CO2.

In addition to a host of interior improvements including optional leather upholstery the new C1 will also be available with new information and entertainment systems, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Isofix anchorage points and ESP anti-skid control.

Full UK prices and final specifications will be comfirmed nearer to the launch date in April 2012.
