The Citroën C1 Furio will go on sale on 1 August. Priced from £10,855, it's a cheap to insure model with a motorsport-inspired design.
The Furio comes with a choice of two three-cylinder engines. The entry-level motor is a 1.0-litre unit that produces 67bhp and 70lb ft of torque, and the second, more expensive option is a 1.2-litre unit that produces 81bhp and 86lb ft of torque.
Both engines emit less than 100g of CO2/km and are mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The smaller engine is claimed to be good for 68.9mpg combined fuel economy, while the larger can manage 65.7mpg.
To boost the appeal of the model to younger drivers, the car’s exterior and interior both have sporty design details.
The Furio is based on the mid-range Feel trim level, but gains black 15in wheels, black body graphics, red door mirror covers, a fake rear diffuser and central exhaust exit. Two exterior metallic paint colours are available: Lipizzan White and Carlinite Grey.
Inside, the Furio has grey cloth upholstery and a standard-fit rev counter.
Order books for the new model are open now and sales will begin on 1 August. The 1.0-litre car is priced from £10,855 and the 1.2-litre model from £11,205.
A key rival for the C1 Furio is the Skoda Citigo Monte Carlo. Also inspired by motorsport, the £10,670 Monte Carlo combines a 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine with sporty features such as bespoke alloys, a spoiler and body decals.
