Ownership cost

What used Citroën C2 hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Citroën C2 hatchback?

No C2 will cost a bomb. Like most Citroens, residual values from new are poor, so used versions are very affordable. You can pick up fairly young examples for bargain prices.

Crucially for the young buyers that seem to love the C2, running costs are very reasonable. Our favourite 1.1 version will return 47.9mpg, and even the sportiest VTR and VTS versions will still return a very respectable 40mpg. The diesel is the clear winner here, though, returning an impressive 68.9mpg.

Insurance costs are a big plus point for our favourite 1.1, being classified in the cheapest group 1. The 1.4 sits in group 3 along with the diesel, while the VTR and VTS are less respectable, sitting in groups 6 and 8 respectively.

Servicing costs are cheap. You'll even pay less to service your C2 than you would to maintain its little brother, the C1.
