Citroen has given its latest C1 minicar what it calls a "cheerful" design to help the car stand out in Europe's highly competitive minicar segment.
The French brand is also adding a C1 variant with a sliding fabric roof called Airscape, Citroen said in a statement.
Citroen today released pictures and some details about the second generation of the minicar ahead of its debut at next month's Geneva auto show.
The C1's front end has been styled to give it a "smiling" face, Citroen said.
New-generation gasoline engines and the car's low weight (840kg) will put the C1 among the best in class for fuel consumption, the statement said.
The C1 will be built alongside its siblings, the Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo, at PSA/Peugeot-Citroen's joint plant with Toyota in the Czech Republic. All three cars will debut on March 4.
