With eight body colours to choose from, including four metallic options, three colour choices for the fabric roof, three wheel designs and four interior upholstery finishes, the car offers a sweet and tempting option for young buyers thinking of buying their first motor.

There is also the addition of Citroën’s latest 3-cylinder ‘PureTech’ VTi 82 engine with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Generously equipped, the lead-in New Citroën C1 Touch standard specification includes ABS, EBA, ESP, power steering, high frequency remote central locking, electric front windows, six airbags, an MP3 compatible audio system, a USB socket and LED daytime running lights.

Optional extras include automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights, keyless entry & start and styling details such as black leather upholstery and various interior colour packs.
