A SPORTY city car aimed at younger drivers is being introduced by Citroen as the French car maker expands its C1 line up.

The new C1 Furio is based on the entry level C1 Feel but comes with additional body styling.

Available only in three-door body style the Furio comes with 15-inch black alloy wheels with red centre caps, red door mirrors, additional body decals plus a centrally mounted exhaust and a rear diffuser.

Inside, the C1 Furio is finished with grey cloth upholstery and is fitted with a rev counter as standard.

Priced from £10,855, the Furio is available either with a 1.0-litre, 68bhp VTi engine which is rated at 68.9mpg or with Citroen's award-winning 1.2-litre 82bhp PureTech engine which has an official fuel return of 65.7mpg.

The PureTech version is priced from £11,205 and both models are free from vehicle tax with emissions below 100g/km.

Top speed for the 1.2-litre model is 106mph with a 0 to 60 acceleration time of 11 seconds while the VTi version tops out at 98mph with a 0 to 60 time of 14.2 seconds.

Citroen says the C1 Furio is aimed at drivers who want a sporty looking model but without the cost penalty of one with a more powerful engine.

The new C1 Furio is the latest in a series of sporty-themed little cars from Citroen which includes the Saxo Furio of the 1990s, the AX Sport and the C2 ‘by Loeb' special edition from 2007.
