The Citroen C1 Hatchback measures a mere 3.4 meters long or 11 feet. This makes parking incredibly easy when you can only find a tight spot available. Some may think that because this car is so short in length that it will compromise on the space inside. This is not the case, Citroen have thought about the fact that people want a small car that zips around town with little effort but can also still be used as a family car. The windows for instance, have been designed so that they are large and airy. If sitting as a passenger in the back, you will not feel like you have been caged in; this is especially important when it comes to long car journeys.

When using this, your boot space will rise to 700 liters or 154 gallons; plenty of room if you are going on a trip or moving home. At this point, you may still be dwelling on the length of the car and how it will accommodate those of you who are tall.

The Citroen C1 Hatchback will not disappoint here either. It is powered by an engine which has 3 cylinders and returns 99 grams per kilometer or .62 miles of CO2. For England, this is well within the legal limit. If you have not heard, London introduced something called the congestion charge some years ago.

This is something that will catch the eye of anyone in the South of England looking for a new car.
