Citroen has created a new special edition of their C2 model especially for young buyers.

The new C2 Design special edition is available with a choice of two petrol engines – a 61hp 1.1i unit and a 75hp 1.4i unit. The C2 1.1i Design comes with one year’s free insurance for buyers aged 19 – 80 who purchase their car via Citroën’s Elect 3 finance scheme, while £800 cashback means that the 1.4i version is available for under £8,000.

The C2 1.1i is rated in the lowest possible insurance group rating of 1 – perfect for helping to keep insurance costs down.

The new Design special editions slot in above the entry level L models, adding a CD player, electric front windows and body coloured bumpers and rubbing strips, as well as a funky new interior trim. This is in addition to the standard specification of variable power assisted steering, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Emergency Braking Assistance as well as remote control central locking with deadlocks.

The C2 1.1i Design is available now for £8,295, while the C2 1.4i Design costs £8,795. The free insurance offer is available on cars ordered by 30th November and registered by the end of December.
