Revised Citroen C1 priced from £7,995

List prices start at £7,995 for the revised Citroen C1 when it goes on sale on 2 April - identical to the starting price of the impressive new Volkswagen Up. However Citroen is already offering £1000 off all models as part of the 'Citroen Reward' scheme, so real prices actually start at a more sensible £6,995.

The standard 1.0-litre manual models average a claimed 65.7mpg while CO2 emissions of 99g/km mean zero VED and exemption from the central London congestion charge zone. The EGS automated manual version is slightly less frugal with a claimed 62.8mpg while emissions increase to 104g/km - although that's still only £20 a year in tax.

There are three trim levels with the basic VT model coming reasonably well equipped. VTR models add day-time running LEDs, air conditioning and electric front windows. The VTR+ gets 14-inch alloy wheels, Connecting Box (Bluetooth & USB socket), front fog lights, a leather steering wheel and dark tinted windows.

VTR models are available from just £99 per month with Elect 4 Personal Lease, including one year’s free insurance for drivers aged 21-75.
