The upbeat, easy-to-drive city car, Citroën C1 is now boosting its appeal, with updated features such as new Citroën chevrons, new technological equipment, improved overall comfort and new Euro 6.d-TEMP engines.
To strengthen the Citroën C1 range even further, the special edition is being introduced. Citroën’s partnership with the brand ELLE sees the addition of the elegant, trendy and connected C1 ELLE.
Citroen C1: A Renewed Range
Citroën C1 is approaching spring 2018 with even more vigour. A city car that has achieved over a million sales worldwide since 2006 (all generations included), Citroën C1 plans to keep moving along the path of success with new updates to the range, including new colours and materials, improved comfort, new safety and connectivity equipment, and a new-generation engine.
Citroën C1 now features:
A new brand image: Citroën C1 keeps its upbeat and bold unique look by showcasing the new brand image, in line with the entire Citroën range. The glass back panel features new chevrons and a new Citroën monogram located above the boot handle. The vehicle is signed ‘C1’ in the new Citroën typeface, on the lower right side
New colours and interiors: Among its eight exterior colours, Citroën C1 integrates three new paintwork colours offering elegance and freshness, respectively: Pacific Green replaces Jelly Red, Calvi Blue replaces Smalt Blue (available on all versions except ELLE) and Nude joins as an exclusive C1 ELLE colour. The popular city car is also available with three bi-tone roof colours optional on the Feel and Flair trims.
The Airscape version comes with a black fabric roof as standard but is also available in Sunrise Red or Blue fabric. In total, 32 different combinations are available to customers including mono-tone, two-tone, hatchback and open-top options. On board, Citroën C1 is also focused on interior personalisation. There are more choices in terms of ambience with new upholstery options such as Blue ‘Square’ cloth and Sunrise Red ‘Zebra’ cloth
New driver comfort aids: In line with the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, Citroën C1 offers well-being and relaxation on board. In terms of everyday driving, this translates to unequalled suspension comfort and up to six driving aids available (Active Safety Brake, Lane Departure Warning, Hill Start Assist, Reversing camera, Keyless Entry and Start)
New technological features: 2018 will be marked by the introduction of new technologies to meet the needs of urban mobility and connectivity. These include: Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation system and Triple Play – standard from Feel upwards, featuring enhanced Mirror Screen compatibility (Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto and MirrorLink®), allowing the user to mirror his or her iPhone screen onto the 7-inch touchscreen
Improved overall comfort: thanks to optimised acoustics and driving comfort
Latest-generation Euro 6.d-TEMP engines: Offering more power and lower emissions, the VTi 72 is a brand new engine to the Citroën C1 range, meeting the Euro6.2 standards, and will be available with a 5-speed manual and ETG gearbox. The VTi 72 engine becomes the only engine available on Citroën C1.
The launch of two special editions to celebrate this new 2018 range: Citroën C1 ‘ELLE’ and Citroën C1 ‘Urban Ride’ offer distinct features guaranteed to win over both male and female customers.
Each customer can choose the C1 that suits him or her: elegant and stylish or energetic and adventurous.
Citroen C1 ELLE: A Stylish and Connected Special Edition
Spring 2018 marks a new step in Citroën’s partnership with the brand ELLE, the benchmark in fashion and on-trend style.
Following the reveal of C3 ELLE at the beginning of the year, it's the turn of the Citroën C1 city car to adopt the elegant style of ‘ELLE’. Placing the emphasis on femininity, this refreshing version is aimed at customers looking for a car with style and character. Ideal for a stylish, energetic approach to urban living, it has real appeal with its compact dimensions, elegant design, comfort and technologies that are very much in tune with the times. With the ‘ELLE’ Colour Pack, the exterior personalisation extends harmoniously into the cabin, where C1 also offers greater connectivity.
Citroën C1 ELLE is a vision of elegance in its exclusive two-tone Nude body colour and Caldera Black roof finish, outlined by a special rear panel decal and enhanced by tinted side and rear windows. Citroën C1 ELLE offers two other colour combination options: Lipizzan White / Gallium Grey Roof and Caldera Black / Gallium Grey roof. The Caldera Black side mirror covers underscore the harmony and elegance of the vehicle. To boost the potential for exterior personalisation even more, C1 ELLE features the aluminium badge of its partner ELLE on each front door.
The ‘ELLE’ Colour Pack is also reflected in a consistent manner on board, where the exclusive light grey ‘Wave’ upholstery is highlighted with Cherry Pink stitching. To underscore the attention to the interior ambience details, the multimedia panel surround and the dashboard decor are finished in Anodised Rose, contrasting with the baseplate of the gear lever and the centre wheel caps in Gloss Black. A special decal also features on the dashboard panel on the passenger side. In the same spirit, special protective mats in the front and back feature a subtle splash of ‘Cherry Pink’ on their border and an ‘ELLE’ logo.
Based on the top trim level (Flair) which is already richly equipped with electronically heated door mirrors, reversing camera, DAB digital radio / MP3 audio system with steering-wheel mounted controls, Bluetooth hands-free kit and USB outlet, Citroën C1 ELLE gains the Automatic Pack, which includes automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights.
Citroën C1 is also connected featuring a 7-inch touchscreen tablet and enhanced Mirror Screen technology now compatible with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto and MirrorLink®.
Available in the 5-door hatchback version, Citroën C1 ELLE uses the efficient and high-performing VTi 72 petrol unit combined with a manual gearbox.
