CITROEN C1 1.0i VTR 3dr [AC] (Review date: 23rd March '11)
This is our second car it used for popping to the shops and to work and back it is very reliable and economical 60 Mpg average is brilliant with petrol at nearly £6 a gallon, you can sit 4 adults in it but ours is a 2 door which makes it a little bit harder the boot is big enough for a weeks shopping but with the back seats down you can even fit a couple cans of beer in it as well.
Good cheap little car.

C,1 A nice little City Car
CITROEN C1 1.0i VTR 3dr (Review date: 22nd March '11)
The C1 is a well priced small city car, you can fit four adults in it but only really for shortish journeys or you'll need quite a few breaks to stretch those legs.
Its well built if a little bumpy when speeding along, and it can do well over 70 on the motorway and is happy nipping around town too .
inside the car is well styled and easy to use. it can be rather noisy though but you have to remember it is a budget car.
You can fit a couple of small suitcases in the boot so its good for a weekend away( if there's only a couple of you though).
Its cheap to run, road tax is only £35 for the year and you can get 400 miles from a full tank of fuel.
Overall a great little car.
MY PENCIL SHARPENER
CITROEN C1 1.0i Vibe 5dr (Review date: 22nd March '11)
My C1 is the best economical car I have ever had. It is small and can easily get lost in a car park, especially if it is beside a huge 4x4. It cries.
I have amazing running costs. my pencil sharpener (or hairdryer as some people call it) is used every day to work and taking my family to various destinations and I fill it with about £40 of petrol and that can last me almost a month. The back of the car has plenty leg room for 2 adults.
Ok the boot is quite small but what's the back seat for other than putting your weekly shopping in.
My friend has the 2 door but I would not be without my 4 doors.
Will get another C1 next time, but a different colour.
Small, agile, perfect city car.
CITROEN C1 1.0i Vibe 3dr (Review date: 18th March '11)
I've owned this car for 2 years, and have to say it's a good little machine that takes you to A to B without worries.
Fuel consumption is something you'll see from diesel cars, but this is a petrol with a 1.0 engine but is also nippy around the edges. I could easily get over 45mpg out of it, and the road tax is also very cheap.
However, this car does not suit my style of driving and taste as it's more of a girl's car in my opinion.
The reliability is good, as when you're considering going for long journey's or using this as a day to day driver then you wouldn't have to worry too much about the fuel as a full tank can last over two weeks when driving sensibly. Also, luggage space is fairly optimistic as you can easily store a whole weeks of groceries in the back of the boot without too much effort.
All in all, a perfect all round car.
CITROEN C1 1.0i Rhythm 5dr (Review date: 14th March '11)
Looked for about 2 months for the right car, 4 door, economical, cheap tax,insurance. Finally decided that a Citroen C1 may be the car for me. First impression was 'WOW' is this car really only 68BHP. Car is very nippy, put your foot down and it shoots off with a nice rasp from the exhaust. Once you reach 3rd. gear then the power seems to die down. I've only done 2 long trips, on one I got 76 MPG and on the other 78MPG (being very light-footed). Back and for to work, only 2.3 miles, is the worst economy I've had, even this is in the high 50's. Tax is only £20. Not a lot of leg room for rear passengers, but O.K. for children under 10. Both back seat fold down to give you a fair sized boot (big enough for 15 bags of logs!)
Would I buy another? YES-maybe a diesel though. It's not a motorway cruiser but for the odd long trip is O.K. Around town it's great.
Devans Reviews Citroen C1
CITROEN C1 1.0i Vibe 3dr (Review date: 13th March '11)
The Citroen C1 is a handy little vehicle around town, and is great on the motorway too. It's punchy little one litre, three cylinder engine has the grunt to carry out what is asked of the car. Being a very light weight car, fuel economy is great, with the car achieving over 60 miles to the gallon, and on a full tank of fuel can get you over 500 miles.
As a driving instructor, the C1 is a terrific tuition vehicle, with a tight turning circle, maneuvering is a breeze.
Fantastically practical and affordable

CITROEN C1 1.0i Rhythm 5dr (Review date: 12th March '11)
If you purchase the car knowing its limitations the car proves to be practical if the 4 door is chosen. Easier to put any shopping on the back seat. Although the bootspace is usable it is not easy to get bags in and out. Very spacious in the cabin for the length of the car. Nippy , economical, easy to park. Cheap to insure and tax. The perfect second car for me.
