 01. A NEW COLLECTION WITH A STRONG PERSONALITY

Last spring Citroën launched the all-new special edition “C1 Urban Ride” which is now available in a new “collection”. With its dynamic styling and go-anywhere look denoted by body protections, C1 Urban Ride cheerfully evokes urban adventure. Inspired by customers and their motoring behaviour, the new version targets all those who take the city as their playground, with no compromises on style.

The special edition stands apart through:

- Urban Ride exterior customisation, including large wheel arches with Matte Black wing extensions, “Urban Ride” labels on the quarterlights and door decals, Lipizan White door-mirror housings, and 15-inch Planet Black alloy wheels (or diamond-effect as a free option) with black centres;

- Scarlet Red body paint (standard colour) combined with a two-tone Caldera Black roof (optional), which strengthen the car’s dynamic and exclusive nature. Other body colours are also available in the catalogue: Calvi Blue, Gallium Grey, Caldera Black and Lipizan White.

A host of customisation possibilities are available inside:

- New: the Urban Ride interior ambiance including new two-tone Grey and White Urban Ride Collection 2 cloth upholstery with discreet red topstitching, and special front and rear protective mats with the “Urban Ride” logo;

- New: the Urban Ride Color Pack, which creates an original ambiance strengthening the harmony between the exterior and interior in terms of colours and materials. It stands out with a dashboard insert and multimedia façade in an elegant Porcelaine White tone, Gloss Black gear-stick base and air-vent surrounds, and a special dashboard decal.

 

02. AN INGENIOUS AND PRACTICAL NEW COLLECTION

Behind the dynamic looks and mischievous personality lies a cheerful city car full of surprises. Agile and ideal for nipping in and out of traffic with its compact dimensions (3.46 m long) and handling (4.80 m turning circle), Citroën C1 also boasts plenty of room for 4 people.

The ingenious and practical Citroën C1 offers generous boot volume, with capacity ranging from 196 litres to 780 litres depending on the rear bench position. It also features a luggage shelf that retracts when opening the tailgate, for easy loading. Storage spaces are legion, including a glove box with space for a 1 litre bottle, as well as cup holders.

An ideal model for stylish and dynamic city living, it appeals through its compact dimensions, elegant design and the practicality and well-being it provides to occupants.
