    My car

    This is a craking little car: it combines not only the performance of its big brother, the C2, but also the space.

    The C1 is a small car, but it can easily seat four and some luggage. As in most small cars, the seats will have to come down for a large amount of luggage, but it will handle the weekly shop.

    Overall, this car is a modern-day 2CV, and any potential buyers should stick with the lowest three-door model due to its simpilcity - in a city car, less is more!

    My car

    I have only owned this car for a week, but so far I'm very pleased I chose this car.

    My other car is a Jaguar SE 3.0, but at 23 mpg it is too heavy on petrol.

    Now I'm retired I have bought the C1 for its far better mpg for the town work and will use the Jaguar for long distances.

    I've done 70 miles so far and it is showing full, I'm waiting for it to suddenly go down.

    Road holding is fine and I'm particually impressed with the visibility.
