Citroen C1 Overview

The Citroen C1 is a small family car in the city car class. This car is built by the French car manufacturing company Citroen. Citroen is part of the larger PSA Peugeot Citroen group and this car was designed as part of a project with Toyota. The Peugeot 106 is almost identical but for a few minor differences, where as the Toyota Aygo is built from the same platform but has a few more differences. This car is very cheap to run, small and practical but has very little room inside.

Citroen C1 History

The Citroen C1 was first built in 2005 at the brand new plant in Kolin, Czech Republic. This plant is owned by TPCA (Toyota Peugeot Citroen Automobile) and produces the very similar cars mentioned above: Citroen C1, Peugeot 106 and Toyota Aygo. The C1 is a very stylish small looking car which is appealing to the eye. It also runs well, cheap on fuel and extremely reliable. In 2009 all three care previously mentioned received a makeover. This mainly affected the bumpers, grille, and interior and meant some new paint colours were made available. The petrol engine was adapted a bit, meaning you could get more mpg, making it more economical. Again in 2012 there was a bit of a makeover which affected much the same areas as the previous makeover.

Fuel Economy

This is probably one of the most economical cars on the market. There are 1.0 petrol and 1.4 diesel engines available for this car. The petrol engine offers 61.4 mpg (mile per gallon) and the diesel 68.9mpg, making the diesel the more economic choice of the two. As can be seen from the results, this is a great car to go for if fuel economy is high on your list.


There are two gearboxes available for this vehicle: 5-speed manual and 5-speed ‘SensoDrive’, which is a mixture of manual and automatic with paddles mounted to the steering wheel for changing gear. This option is also better economically.
