Citroen revealed today the 2008 C2, which has sold in more than 480,000 units across Europe since its launch in 2003. The front end gains several changes, designed to highlight the dynamic and elegant exterior lines that have contributed to the C2’s success. Changes include a more imposing bumper and a new radiator grille with wider and bigger chevrons.
From May 2008, depending on the country, the C2 diesel range will be available with the 110 bhp HDi engine and particulate filter. Allied with a well balanced chassis setting remarkable standards in dynamic behavior, this powerful but frugal engine consumes just 4.4 l/100 km for CO2 emissions of no more than 119 g/km. As a result, the C2 HDi 110 DPFS carries the Airdream® label identifying Citroën’s most ecological models.
The Stop and Start system will still be available on the C2, with the 90 bhp 1.4i 16V engine. This affordable technology delivers real benefits in terms of acoustic comfort and vibration control, economy and environmental protection. With the Stop and Start system, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are around 10% lower over an urban cycle and 15 % lower in heavy traffic.
