When Citroën announces Edition and Platinum versions of a model range, you know that its days are numbered, with the C4 hatchback the latest recipient of the nomenclatures. An all-new model isn’t currently planned, so the mid-sized Citroën will die off without a replacement being introduced. The Edition trim level is offered with a single diesel option, in BlueHDi 100 guise, with the better specified Platinum model given the choice of the same BlueHDi 100 powerplant or more powerful BlueHDi 120 unit with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Prices start at £18,820 and rise to £22,140. Standard equipment on both models includes alloy wheels: 16-inch on the Edition, 17-inch on the Platinum, as well as a leather steering wheel and gear knob, air conditioning, cruise control, electric front windows, rear parking sensors, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity. Platinum versions also gain dualzone climate control, electric rear windows, a seven-inch navigation system, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, an autodimming rear view mirror, front fog lights and chrome door mirrors. The revised range is available to order now, with the first cars turning up at dealers shortly.

A new addition to the C1 range has been announced by Citroën, named Feel Edition, and offered with a choice of 68bhp 1.0 VTi engine or the more powerful 82bhp 1.2 PureTech unit. Prices start at £11,145 for the former and £11,495 for the latter, and costs £250 more than the Feel model the car is based upon. Additional equipment includes a rev counter, 15-inch black wheel covers, white door mirrors, Feel Edition graphics and white dashboard appliqué and touchscreen surround. The no-cost paint option is this Pacific Green colour that is unique to the C1 Feel Edition, with Gallium Grey and Caldera Black available for an extra £245.
