New Citroen C1 price slashed

The new Citroen C1 price means an entry-level model will be one of the cheapest cars on the market at just £6,995, according to the French car maker.

The C1 was originally given a £7,995 price tag which put it on par with its rebadged sibling, the Peugeot 107. However, the C1 is now the cheaper of the two cars after introducing its £1,000 ‘Citroen reward’.

The C1 is highly customisable and is well known for its frugal engine range, which includes a 1.0-litre petrol that emits emissions as low as 99g/km and returns up to 65.7mpg. These low emissions mean the C1 is exempt from the London congestion charge and 1st year VED.

With three available trim levels: VT, VTR, VTR+, the C1 offers plenty of whistle and bells. The top of the range five door VTR+ model offers a leather steering wheel, Bluetooth and USB compatibility, dark tinted windows and 14″ alloy wheels.

VTR models are also available from just £99 per month with Elect 4 Personal Lease, which includes one year’s free insurance for drivers aged 21-75.

Citroens price cuts are being offered across the range and have already been offered on Citroen C-Zero models.

New Citroen C1 prices start from £6,995 and the C1 is available to order now, ahead of its release on 2 April next week.

Citroen vehicles are available from Perrys Citroen of Barnsley, Perrys Citroen of Huddersfield and Perrys Citroen of Milton Keynes dealerships.
