Citroën C1 named most dependable in its class

31st July 2014

Buyers of the Citroën C1 have been singing the model's praises for years, and now it has been recognised for its reliability by consumer advice experts Which?.

The model beat its competitors in the supermini class – including the luxury Mercedes-Benz E-Class - with an unrivalled 99.3 percent score. The E-Class itself was awarded the honour of best in the luxury segment, but this higher-priced vehicle couldn't match the C1 for reliability.

This year's Which? survey gathered information from motorists and members of the consumer group on how their vehicle performed and any faults encountered. The results are published to help other drivers make an informed decision when next looking to purchase.

The latest-generation C1 arrived in the UK in July 2014, and it builds on the success of the outgoing model with refreshed styling and a range of ultra-efficient engines. Contrast-coloured door mirrors and roof give the model a vibrant look, and under the bonnet there's a choice of VTi Puretech or frugal e-VTi powertrains, with up to 72.4mpg combined given by the e-VTi.

Clearly, the C1 is the ideal choice for those looking to for reliable, low-cost motoring from their next car, and the model can be explored in detail with the help of Charles Hurst Citroën in Belfast. Enquire today for details and to book your test drive.
