The Citroen C1 is new on the market so you don't see many around.I loved this car as soon as I saw it. I have the 3-door version.Don't be fooled by its small size as there is far more room inside than you would expect. The front seats slide back and forward very easily, unlike some which tend to stick and require brute force to get them to move. There is only one guage on the dashboard which incorporates the speedometer, fuel guage and all the other warning signs such as seatbelt,brake etc. It comes fitted with a CD/radio but only has front speakers.The sound quality of the CD is very good and it is simple to operate. The lights, indicators and windscreen wipers are all in the usual places and easy ti use. Despite it's small engine 998cc, I had no problem cruising at 70mph on the dual carriageway. However, as could be expected with a car this size, when carrying 2 or 3 passengers speed was reduced. The makers claim an average mpg of 61.4, but as I've yet to finish my first tank of fuel I cannot comment on that.I can say however that it seems to be going forever on it's first tank.
In summary, I would definately recommend this car. I would rate it primarily as a ladies car, it is small, nippy, easy to drive, very comfortable and very economical
Very good review. It is extremely concise, perhaps to a fault, but this will suit a lot of readers because the impression is clear. Congratulations :-)

The car looks very snazy, small and an easy car to park. I was suprised to hear from you that it can cruise at 70mph on the motorway. Will have to take a test drive in one ofthese. The colour red suits the shapw of the car as well.

I passed my test in a citroen and have owned four of them. this looks like a very practical town car, more sensible than these horrendous 4X4s that people seem to favour.
This car stereo kit comes complete with an Alpine UTE-72BT and also the fitting ... more
accessories needed to install the new head unit into your car. This consists of: facia surround, wiring harness, aerial adaptor; removal keys to take out the original stereo etc. (Please note this is adapted to suit each vehicle) *Please note if your car has steering wheel controls you will need an extra adaptor to link them, available in our amazon store - call sales for details. The Alpine Drive-less Head Unit is a mechless head unit with built-in Bluetooth for safe hands free calling, access to your phonebook, text waiting display and music streaming. It also allows you to listen to music from your iPod/iPhone. Play your iPod┬« or iPhone┬« via USB in and control music playback and search functions right from the Head Unit. Alternatively you can also switch to Direct Control Mode and control playback from the iPod┬« and iPhone┬« directly. App Direct mode allows you to enjoy the sound of any iPhone app through your car speakers while you charge your phone - very handy for internet radio or navigation apps. Use the voice control key to activate Siri on your iPhone 4S / iPhone 5 to control the music playback and place calls. This works also for Android phones with voice control function. The stereo also includes a front USB input to connect USB memory sticks and an AUX to connect any audio devices. This is a mechless stereo (no CD player built in), meaning there is now no need to carry around 100's of CD's.
