Review Summary
This is a fun little car, which is a big step up from its predecessor. The engine is a bit rough around the edges, but there are plenty of reasons to consider the C1, from its playful looks to the handy touchscreen controls inside.

Review Summary
The Citroen C1 city car is a quirky and affordable car, with generous kit, but it can’t quite match the best rivals in its class.

Review Summary
Built in the same plant as its Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo counterparts, with the engineering handled by the latter company, the new C1 is the most solid supermini from the French firm yet.

Review Summary
Arguably the C1 is one of the most characterful city cars you can buy. There are more spacious options, but few are cheekier.

Review Summary
The Citroen C1 has been usefully updated and shows a decent turn of performance, with economy, but it is surprisingly unrefined against the competition.

Review Summary
It’s got plenty of style and it’s decent to drive, but the Citroen C1 loses out to more practical city car rivals.
