2012 Citroen C1 Prices - It's cheap, but we wouldn't recommend it

The Citroen the C1 isnt best city car on sale today, which is reflected in a low buzzScore and poor sales, despite a facelift in January.
This must be worrying Citroens management, as theyve just announced a whopping discount and free insurance.
We've already take a look at what's new with the C1 facelift, but now prices and spec levels have been announced.

The three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine remains the same, which isnt a bad thing as its a good engine as long as you dont spend too much time on the motorway.
It returns up to 65.7mpg on average, making it very cheap to run.

Worth knowing

The engine is so frugal that it is exempt from the London Congestion Charge and qualifies for free road tax in its first year.
Price: The C1 starts at 7,995, minus 1,000 Citroen Reward, meaning that youll pay just 6,995.
Available from: The offer starts on the 2nd April 2012.
If you buy a VTR model, then you can apply for finance from just 99 per month. You also get one years free insurance as long as you are between 21 and 75 years of age.

Even with the discount and finance offer we still struggle to recommend the Citroen C1; it just isnt that great. Unless a low purchase price is your only consideration then other cars such as the Kia Picanto,Fiat 500 or even the Hyundai i10 get much better reviews and are worth considering instead.
