Citroen C1 Hdi 55

A car like the CITROEN C1 HDi 55 is one of the exceptions in the small car segment, but it is powered by a diesel engine. Even after the introduction of the two sister models, the Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo in 2006, it remains alone the CITROEN C1 Hdi 55, the smart fortwo cdi and the Volkswagen Fox 1.4 TDI reserved as diesel against the concentrated power of a gasoline engine to assert equipped small car armada. That the highly economical 54 hp engine (4.1 liters per 100 km) threatens to go missing a key selling point due to the recent price trend for diesel fuel, was at the time of launch of the CITROEN C1 Hdi 55 not yet in sight. In the development of the small diesel engine, the technician had CITROEN only on the proven 1.4-liter engine with common - rail injection recourse, the already larger Citroen C2 models and C3 drives. With a few changes to the software and a reduced boost pressure of this unit delivers only the C1 HDi 54 hp - 16 hp less so. This engine provides the 955 kg heavy CITROEN C1 still acceptable performance, namely 13.7 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h and a top speed of 157 km / h For city and highway which is always enough. And for long motorway journeys is the economical diesel racer from France, which is offered in three-door and five-door, not intended anyway.
