Citroen has introduced new VTR+ trim on its C1, and extended production of the Splash special edition into the new year.
The Citroen C1 VTR+ is a direct replacement for the previous C1 VTR model, but comes with extra standard equipment – chiefly leather and Alcantara upholstery, a leather steering wheel and gearknob, and new gloss black interior trimmings.
Stability control (ESC) and air conditioning, however, remain optional extras.
Citroen C1 Splash continues
Meanwhile, the C1 Splash Special Edition is apparently proving so popular that Citroen is to continue building it for the foreseeable future.
This model features air conditioning, remote locking and front electric windows – and is available in a pair of exclusive colours with contrast-finish wing mirrors.
Frugal engines, fixed-price servicing
The Citroen C1 – which is mechanically and structurally identical to the Peugeot 107 and the Toyota Aygo – comes with a choice of 1.0-litre petrol engine or 1.4 turbodiesel (in the range-topping VTR+ five-door only), both of which emit less than 110g/km CO2.
Prices start at £8,495 for the entry-level VT three-door. The C1 Splash costs from £9,045, and the new VTR+ from £9,345.
Current offers include a fixed price servicing plan, available for £199, which covers all scheduled servicing (including brake fluid replacement) for up to three years/35,000 miles.
