Citroen C1

Overall rating: 77.20%

The Citroen C1’s cute looks are not enough to save it from a mauling by its owners when it comes to its driving dynamics. They don’t rate its ride comfort very much and as for handling, that gets the worst score of any car in the bottom 10. It’s also the poorest in this group for performance.

There’s better news for reliability and build quality, while owners also rate repairs costs and ease of driving better than many. However, when it comes to practicality, the C1’s small cabin holds it back from ranking more highly than mediocre. Although it's worth noting that this result covers both generations of the C1.
