Adding indisputable fashion appeal to the C1 range is the stylish C1 Airscape, which enables an al fresco feeling at the touch of a button. A full-length, retractable fabric roof slides all the way back to the rear hatch so that you can let the sunshine in…and when necessary it can be closed in seconds, for refinement and insulation which matches the steel-roofed version. It really does offer the best of both worlds.

The interior combines a vibrant design with user-friendly features. Your ideal day-to-day partner, it boasts a range of convenience features and convenient storage compartments.

The zippy newcomer sets high standards for road handling and ride comfort. A new electrically-assisted rack and pinion delivers precise and accurate steering.

South African customers can look forward to the new PureTech engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. This 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, 61kW petrol engine achieves fuel consumption of 4,3 litres/100 km on the combined cycle, while emitting just 99g/km of CO2. Rewarding performance is ensured thanks to 116 Nm, endowing the C1 with 0-100 km/h acceleration of 11 seconds and a top speed of 170 km/h. Servicing is only required every 20 000 km.

With its low running costs, affordable price tag, city-friendly sizing, zesty performance, and Gallic flair, the new Citroën C1 is the perfect combination of freedom and fun. It’s a feeling that’ll prove hard to resist.
