The new C1 can also be fitted with keyless entry and start, as well as a reversing camera and hill-start assist.

It will be have a choice of two petrol engines, of which the e-VTi 68 Airdream is unit mated to a five-speed gearbox and features Stop&Start technology with a special aerodynamics pack.

This engine is available with the clutchless Efficient Tronic Gearbox with its creep function and optimised pedal mapping, adjusting power effectively for smoother start-ups.

Buyers can also opt for the new VTi 82 from the PureTech engine family. The 1.2 litre 3-cylinder powerplant boasts fuel consumption of 65mpg and 99g/km of CO2 emissions.
