Citroën's C1 given reliability award by Which?

Citroën's C1 supermini has triumphed over its rivals after being voted Britain's most dependable car by Which?. The city car scored an almost perfect 99.3 percent to beat higher priced alternatives such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class to scoop the award. The E-Class was itself named the best model in the luxury sector, but couldn't match the C1 for reliability.

The Which? Car annual survey asks members of the consumer group and other motorists to rate how their car performed for reliability and all other mechanical faults. The published results help all drivers to make an informed decision on which car is best for them when next looking to buy.

The C1 entered a new generation with the release of the latest iteration this month (July 2014), and the model has continued the success of its predecessor in more areas than reliability. A dynamic new design has been applied to the car, giving it a contrast coloured roof and door mirrors plus LED lights cut into the front bumper to stand out on the road.

Dependable performance comes from the choice of robust engines offered, with the 82bhp VTi Puretech joined by a frugal 68bhp e-VTi that gives up to 72.4mpg and emits only 88g/km of CO2.

The new C1 is expected to be a popular choice for motorists looking to upgrade to a new city car, and you can explore this exciting vehicle first hand with Lookers. Contact our dealerships across the North West to book a test drive and for further details.
