Citroen has revealed its cranky-eyed little C1 hatch this week, unveiled online ahead of its debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show.

Again sharing its platform with the recently revealed 2014 Peugeot 108 and Toyota’s next Aygo, the new Citroen arrives to replace the nearly nine year-old first-generation C1.

The new C1 gets the same new headlight treatment that debuted with the new Picasso and Catcus models, with an aggressive eyebrow-like parker and indicator assembly sitting above large circular lights (or eyes, if you will).

There’s also a broad new grille with the familiar Citroen chevron design, and a tall lower grille flanked by a pair of LED daytime running lights.

Citroen has yet to reveal the new model’s cabin, although it promises a seven-inch display that can mirror the views and functions of the owner’s smartphone.

As with the 108, the C1 measures 3460mm long, 1620mm wide and 1450mm tall, and weighs in at a relatively featherlike 840kg. (Or about the same as Alfa Romeo’s new 4C performance coupe.)

Rear storage is listed at a tiny 196 litres with the back seats up, growing to 780 litres when laid flat.

Expect the C1 to be offered in three- and five-door bodystyles as it moves to take on Volkswagen's Up.

Engine options in Europe will include two three-cylinder petrol units, including a Toyota-sourced 50kW 1.0 litre unit and a French 61kW 1.2 litre mill.

A five-speed manual transmission will be standard, along with a five-speed ETG roboticised manual.



An Australian debut for the C1 has yet to be confirmed. But, like the Peugeot 108, it is likely that Citroen’s local arm will look closely at its options for bring the new C1 here.
