What used Citroën C1 hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Citroën C1 hatchback?

There is very little chance that a used C1 will bankrupt you. Even when compared with the Toyota Aygo, with which is shares many of its parts, it loses its value quicker, so it should be cheaper to buy second-hand.

It will cost you peanuts to run, too. Fuel economy is among the best that you will get from any car: the petrol returns an average of 61.4mpg, and although this is a very strong performance, the diesel has it beaten. With an average of 68.9mpg, you will be able to travel more than 530 miles between fills.

Insurance costs, another big consideration for young drivers, are also good as it's possible to get. Both engines carry a group 1 classification, so premiums will be minimal. Routine servicing is also cheap.
