Citroen C1 2021: Facelift & New Details

The  Citroen C1  is the smallest urban compact produced by the French manufacturer. The new generation takes over from a ‘best-seller’ of which more than 780,000 units have been sold since its launch in June 2005. This new model optimistically responds to the new needs in urban mobility.  It is marketed in three- and five-door versions, as well as a convertible variant named ‘Airscape’.

The Citroen C1 is the result of the ‘B-Zero Project’ shared by the PSA Group in conjunction with the Japanese manufacturer Toyota. The model has been manufactured since 2005 in the Czech Republic and is marketed under the Peugeot, Citroen, and Toyota brands. The three models are practically identical, except for details in exterior design, equipment, and interior upholstery.

The Citroen C1 is characterized on its exterior by adopting a silhouette with a very energetic design and a casual front, highlighted by the original shape of its headlights. Versions with two-tone bodywork and colorful interiors convey an optimistic and cheerful image. His style attracts attention from the first moment. Round headlamp headlamps complement the exterior design, complemented by the vertical design of the LED daytime running lights.
