The first generation Citroën C1 has been named the most reliable car up to three years old in the Which? Car Guide 2014/15.

The guide is the UK's biggest car reliability and satisfaction survey which ranked 283 models in total.

With 49,023 car owners reporting on 58,055 cars, the Which? Car Guide collates real ownership experiences from both Which? members and the general public.

The Citroën C1 achieved the highest reliability score overall of 99.3 per cent, compared to the survey's lowest score, for cars up to three years old, of 75.2 per cent.

The model came top for reliability in the supermini category for cars of the same age, with none of the C1 owners surveyed reporting any time off the road during the period surveyed and an average annual repair cost of just 49p.

In comparison, the lowest score in the supermini category (cars up to three years old) was 82.2 per cent with an average annual repair cost of £116 and an average 1.08 days off the road annually.

The impressive result coincides with the arrival of the New Citroën C1, which went on sale in the UK on July 1.

The second generation of Citroën's popular city car will build on the outgoing model's reputation for providing fun and reliable transportation.
