Cheapest cars to run - Citroen C1 1.0i VT: total cost of ownership: £9,130.32

Citroen C1

A new Citroen C1 is on the way but it will have its work cut out to eclipse the old one in the running costs stakes. Sharing a platform with the old Peugeot 108 and the old Toyota Aygo, this original C1 is still available at dealers and remains one of the cheapest cars to run in the country.

It might be a little rough around the edges compared to modern rivals but pleasing design and sturdy build count in its favour.

Total cost of ownership (3-years, 36,000 miles): £9,130.32Monthly running costs: £253.62Cost per mile: 25p
