Best used 2014-present Citroen C1 PCP finance deals

The Citroen C1 is an affordable small hatch for those on a budget – and these are some of the best PCP finance deals for this cute car

The Citroen C1, launched in 2014, is a characterful small car, with cute looks thanks to its bold split-level headlights and bright, contrasting trim and colour options. They are also available with a retractable fabric sunroof, turning the car into a kind of convertible.

Entry-level Touch trim models are only available with three doors but the remaining two trims, mid-level Feel and top-spec Flair, are also offered with five. The five-door version is only £400 more expensive than the three-door when it's new and we think it's well worth the money for the extra convenience and practicality it brings. Go for a used model and the difference in price is likely to be smaller still. Go for a newer model, though, and you'll only get five doors. These are called Urban Ride and Shine.

All Citroen C1s are powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine producing 72hp. Expect around 50mpg, while CO2 emissions are as low as 85g/km. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard; there’s no automatic option for the C1. It's a commendably small car and perfect for squeezing into small parking spots. Over short distances it’s comfortable enough for four adults, but for regular motorway marathons you might want to consider something larger for better refinement and more space.

BuyaCar has a good spread of used Citroen C1s at low prices, ranging in age from eariler models to the latest pre-registered cars. Read on for our breakdown of the best finance deals currently available for the Citroen C1.

Used Citroen C1 PCP offers

Citroen C1 Touch offers

As if to emphasise its entry-level standing, a Citroen C1 in Touch trim is only available with three doors, significantly reducing its appeal for those who want to regularly carry rear-seat passengers. It has a good roster of safety kit, though, including hill start assist and emergency braking assistance, while on a convenience level it has electric front windows and a height adjustable steering wheel.

However, you’ll look in vain for anything more than basic entertainment - an MP3 audio system is your lot. It's also not the funkiest-looking C1 either, with hubcaps replacing the more stylish alloy wheels you get with more expensive trims. You can, at least, brighten it up with one of the many colours Citroen offers at prices from just £250 when new. Those low prices mean a reasonable number of the most basic C1 have bright paintwork, rather than the drab shades often standard on entry-level models.

Forget adding options such as automatic headlights and keyless entry because they’re not offered on this trim.

Citroen C1 Feel offers

These versions cost significantly more than Touch models when new, but the difference is far smaller when taking PCP finance and spreading your payments of the car. A minimal increase to the monthly cost pays for the kind of styling and equipment gains that bring out all of the Citroen C1’s charm and personality.

There are larger wheels than on the Touch models, although these are still steel wheels with plastic covers rather than more stylish alloy wheels, along with body-coloured door handles and mirrors, these are a distinct improvement on Touch trim. Inside there’s air-conditioning and a touchscreen media display with a digital radio and smartphone connectivity. A five-door version is available but this has hinged rear windows rather than wind-down affairs, which aren't to everyone's taste.

Options include the Airscape fabric roof and a safety pack featuring such things as lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.

Citroen C1 Flair offers

Top-level Flair trim is the luxury version in the range. It brings features such as alloy wheels, chrome door handles, mirrors and window surrounds, and dark-tinted rear windows. The steering wheel and gearknob are wrapped in leather and there’s a rev counter, too, so you can see for yourself how fast the engine is spinning away.

Options include sat-nav and a so-called automatic pack comprising automatic air-conditioning and headlights, and keyless entry and start. The Airscape fabric roof is also an option on five-door versions, airscape Feel and Flair models are also offered with the option of colour-coded air vent surrounds, gear lever and steering wheel centre for £100, which make for a bright, colourful interior.
