The CitroÃ«n C1 is a city car produced by the French manufacturer CitroÃ«n since 2005.
The C1 was developed by the PSA Group (Peugeot and CitroÃ«n) in a joint-venture with Toyota. The Peugeot 107 is identical to the C1 other than the front bumper and front and rear lights, while the Toyota Aygo is slightly more differentiated but still obviously similar. All of them are built at the new facilities of the TPCA joint-venture (Toyota Peugeot Citroen Automobile) in the city of Kolin, Czech Republic. The project was presented for the first time at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. The cars are 4-seater, 3 or 5-door hatchbacks measuring 3.40 m in length. The body was designed by Donato Coco.
A notable feature of the 5-door C1 and 107, though not the Aygo, is the lack of an external C-pillar. This means the rear doors meet with the back window, rather than sheet metal in between, which would add cost to production.
The C1 is powered by a 1.0 L 3-cylinder engine, which has a fuel economy of 61.4 mpg (3.8 L/100 km). A 1.4 L 4-cylinder engine is also available.
