Citroën add the new Furio tag to the C1 lineup.

Joining the current Feel, Flair, Flair Edition and Touch C1 model range is the new Furio. Aimed at young drivers that like a sporty look without the associated price and insurance costs, the new C1 Furio will go on sale from the 1st of August with retail, on the road pricing set to start at £10,855 for the 1.0 litre and £11,205 for the 1.2 Puretech.

The motorsport inspired Furio will only be available as a three door, instead of the more practical five-door. It will come with a choice of two engines mated to a five speed manual gearbox only, with no plans for an automatic.

First up is a Toyota developed three cylinder 1.0 litre with 67bhp and 70lb ft of torque. Secondly and more expensive is Citroën’s 1.2 Pure Tech, three cylinder again but with more power 81bhp and 86lb ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 11 seconds

Both variants both deliver excellent fuel economy with over 65mpg each and with both engines producing lower than 100 grams per kilometre CO2 emissions, the road tax will be completely free.

C1 Furio Standard Equipment

The car is based upon the current mid range Feel trim level so you can expect standard features to include air conditioning, remote central locking, front electric windows and a touch-screen infotainment system.

Available in Lipizzan White or Carlinite Grey with a black sporty stripe running along the sides of the car just below the window line from the rear light cluster onwards. Red wing mirrors and red accents on the black 15 inch alloys help to maintain the stand out look of the new Furio. The rear features are not left untouched with a black diffuser like trim to the lower bumper and a centrally mounted exhaust outlet.
