Diesel power for the Citroen C1
20 July 2005

Citroen’s economical supermini is now even more frugal as the French manufacturer launches its C1 1.4HDi in the UK. The C1 is the first of the C1/Peugeot 107/Toyota Aygo triplets to receive the PSA Pegueot Citroen-sourced diesel engine. Priced at £8445, the 55bhp diesel model costs £1100 more than the three-cylinder petrol C1 Rhythm. To claw back that extra cash, the 1.4HDi boasts an average fuel consumption of 69mpg, some 7.5mpg more than the petrol version, and a 28lb ft increase in torque to 96lb ft. Befitting its range-topping status, the diesel option is available in five-door Rhythm trim only. Standard equipment includes four airbags, ABS, remote controlled central locking, front electric windows and a CD player as standard.

The Citroën C1 is the cheapest of the C1-107-Aygo triplets. The city car is cute, but noisy and basic
