Currently reading: Revised 2021 Citroen C1 line-up brings new Urban Ride variant
New entry-level version will be available from £12,815 when the latest C1 arrives in May

Trim levels for the Citroen C1 city car have been revamped, with a new entry-level variant added called Urban Ride, which, it says, is intended for “the urban adventurer”.

Citroen previously applied this badge to the range-topping version of the outgoing C1. Now, however, it is used as a replacement for the old Sense and Live trims, sitting a notch below the mid-tier Shine and now range-leading Airscape Shine.

The new trim will be available in the UK from next month and can be purchased from £12,815 with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty, provided that it is ordered through Citroën’s online store.

The C1 Shine, by contrast, starts at £13,305, with the Airscape Shine priced from £14,305. First deliveries of the latest C1 are expected from the end of May or early June.

Distinguished by a standard ‘Nude’ body colour, the C1 Urban Ride sports “distinctive” styling, dark-tinted windows and flared wheel arch extensions over 15in ‘Comet’ wheel trims.

Four other exterior colours are available - red, white, blue and black - and an optional black roof is offered for a two-tone look.

The cabin has leather detailing around the steering wheel and gear knob, complementing grey seating to achieve what Citroën describes as an “urban style”. Using standard-fit Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, drivers are able to access entertainment services through a 7.0in touchscreen.

The C1 gains chrome exterior door mirrors and a reversing camera in Shine guise. The Airscape Shine adds black centre wheel caps, which can be replaced with Sunrise Red alternatives.

Just one powertrain is available for the new C1: a three-cylinder petrol engine. The 71bhp powerplant is available with a five-speed manual transmission and emits 109g/km of CO2 on the WLTP cycle.

More power and new style improves the Citroen C1's performance and kerb appeal, but it's still not up there with the VW Up, Seat Mii, Skoda Citygo and our other favourite city cars

I always thought that the C1 had the best looks of the trio this time around. As a lover of small cars, I think it is a shame that cars like this will not be replaced and are being phased out.

si73; bank of england inflation calculator has £12,815 costing 11,473 in 2015, so it's not that far off. £4200 in 1985, when a 2cv was costing £3322, £5600 in 1990. Cheaper than a 1.1 Metro used to be.LP; no Citroen/Peugoet is planned, next Aygo is being built on the Yaris platform, Toyota bought the factory outright a while ago
