Citroen shows off C2, its Saxo successor

CITROEN has revealed pictures of the new C2, which will replace the Saxo towards the end of this year.

The C2 follows in the tyre tracks of the Saxo, with ample 'Max Power' appeal – a 1.6-litre 110bhp VTR version and wheel arches with room for 16-inch alloys. But there are also practical touches such as a split tailgate.

Unlike the Saxo, the C2 is available with air conditioning, parking sensors, multi-adjustable steering wheel, trip computer, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and an overspeed warning.

As well as a 1.6-litre engine, the C2 will also be offered with 1.1-litre and 1.4-litre petrol engines and a 1.4HDi common rail diesel and the SensoDrive paddle-shift transmission.

The three-door C2 will join the five-door C3 and convertible C3 Pluriel in Citroen's small car line-up.

Citroen UK managing director Alain Favey said: 'With its dynamic yet mischievous looks, the C2 is set to make a great new addition to our supermini range and will help us build further on Citroen's rapidly-growing UK popularity.'
