Citroën will showcase its C1 sibling at the Geneva Motor Show next month. It is essentially the same car as the Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo but with different styled ends and front. It's got sort of an angry face that makes the C1 hard to miss.
The car features two sets of headlights, two round ones that remind of the Fiat 500 and two angry-looking “eyebrows” above them. It has vertical LED daytime running lights in the lower part of the bumper and the profile and rear end of the C1 are similar to the Peugeot.
Just like the 108, the Citroën C1 will be available in three- and five-door versions, with an open-top bodystyle called Airscape also to be introduced (800 mm x 760 mm soft top).
The C1 shares the dimensions with the 108, being 3,460mm (136.2in) long, 1,620mm (63.8in) wide and 1,450mm (57in) tall. It weighs the same too, from 840 kg (1,851 lbs). The car has a 4.80m (189in) turning circle and features electric power steering for easy handling.
The C1 features a 196-liter (6.92 cu-ft) boot, with volume increasing to 780 liters (27.5 cu-ft) with the rear seats folded.
Citroën will offer the C1 with two 3-cylinder petrol models, the Toyota-sourced 68hp 1.0-liter e-VTi 68 Airdream engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and featuring Stop&Start technology, and the 82hp 1.2-liter VTi 82. The latter produces 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque and averages 4.3 l/100 km (54.7 mpg US), with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km. The 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 11 seconds.
