Small car buyers have never had it so good. Hot on the heels of the Toyota Aygo comes Citroen's new entry-level model, the C1. It is the product of the city car family developed jointly by PSA and Toyota, which is completed by the Peugeot 107.
Fun to drive - that's most people's verdict on our long-term Citroen C2 VTS. But not mine. I never thought I'd say this, but I really couldn't give a stuff about how much enjoyment I get from my daily runaround.
How do you make a stylish family hatchback even more appealing? For city drivers, the option of a smooth automatic gearbox would be a big plus - and Citroen is hoping its new self-shifting model can tempt even more buyers to the C4.
Citroen's C4 is now available with a five-speed auto. Two five-door only models are available; the £14,195 1.6i SX and £17,495 2.0i Exclusive, although both are eligible for Citroen's current £1,100 cashback deal.
