Citroën’s popular C1 has just received an updated for 2012. This facelifted 2012 Citroën C1 is on show at the Brussels motor show this week.
The redesigned front-end of the C1 is somewhat reminiscent of the C-Cactus concept that was on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007, while other minor changes include different handles and hubtub.
New features include CO2 emissions from just 99g/km, LED daytime running lights, a CD audio system with Citroën’s integrated Connecting Box (Bluetooth® system with USB socket) and an Electronic Gearbox System with steering-mounted paddles.
Tweaks to its 67bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine have resulted in CO2 emissions of 99g/km (down from 103g/km) and combined economy of 65.7mpg (up from 62.8mpg) for the C1 1.0i variant mated to a manual gearbox.
In addition, if you want to fang it F1-style, the paddles are on offer with a new gearbox, the efficient and responsive Electronic Gearbox System (EGS), which sounds to us like it could be an able competitor to Volkswagen’s DSG.
