The C1's restyled front end gives it more vitality and punch. The new bumper, larger and more curvaceous, confers a snappy, energetic look and a touch of elegance. From the second trim level, the new model sports a chrome strip that highlights the curves of the bumper and confirms the vivacious, contemporary feel. The new C1's revitalised look is further enhanced by new wheel embellishers with more emphatic and sculptural lines. Depending on the country, the new C1 ships with two new body colours, Mica grey and Electra blue, rounding out the range of paint options.
Several upgrades have also been made to the C1 cabin, particularly in terms of the interior design scheme. Two new fabric trims in dominant dark blue and Bordeaux red lend vitality and elegance to the cabin. Depending on the market, a third trim level, in leather and alcantara, is now available. This interior scheme tops up the existing offer and enhances onboard sophistication. The new trim level also features a leather steering wheel and gearstick knob, together with gloss black surrounds for the speedometer, rev counter, air vents and door handles. Air conditioning, alloy wheels and a CD audio system are fitted as standard on this trim level.
The barrel-shaped display below the central console features new screen-printing for more clarity and modernity. This upgrade applies to all models in the range. In other changes, boot access has been optimised through greater clearance for the rear parcel shelf.ECC launches Citroën C1 ev'ie
