The 2014 Citroen C1 will be priced from £8245 when it goes on sale in July.
The new city car is available with three or five doors, and will come in three trims, called Touch, Feel and Flair. The top-of the range Flair model will cost from £11,935.
The Touch model comes with remote central locking, electric front windows, a USB socket and LED daytime running lights all as standard.
The Feel model starts at £9495 for the three-door model and adds air-conditioning, a DAB digital radio, steering wheel-mounted controls and body-coloured door mirrors and door handles. It also comes with Citroen's seven-inch touch-screen.
Flair trim starts at £10,185 and offers 15-inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera, electric and heated door mirrors, a speed limiter, tinted windows and leather interior touches.
Owners will also be able to choose from a list of options including climate control, automatic headlights, keyless entry and start and styling details such as black leather upholstery.
The C1 can also be had with a retractable fabric roof, which Citroen calls the Airscape model. This adds between £800 and £900 to the price and is available on Feel and Flair models.
There’s a choice of three-cylinder petrol engines. The entry-level unit is a 68bhp 1.0-litre petrol that comes with a five-speed manual gearbox and engine stop-start technology. Buyers can also spec a five-speed automatic gearbox.
There’s also a 1.2-litre petrol that produces 82bhp and also comes with a five-speed manual gearbox. All versions emit less than 100g/km of CO2, with the cleanest engine putting out just 88g/km.
The first cars will be heading out to customers from the start of July.
