Citroen C-Elysee Review
In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Citroen C-Elysee. We will examine the details about the Citroen C-Elysee under three main categories such as The Features of the Citroen C-Elysee, The Fuel Consumption of the Citroen C-Elysee and Basic Characteristics of Citroen C-Elysee. These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the Citroen C-Elysee. The C-Elysee is a Subcompact car manufactured by French automaker Citroen since 2012. It was first introduced to the public at the Paris Auto Show and is quite similar to the Peugeot 301. Using the PSA PF1 platform, C-Elysee has been sold in many European markets and has made quite interesting statistics on the basis of sales figures. The car, produced in four different countries, is still a current and well-known model in the Subcompact market for Citroen.
The Features of the Citroen C-Elysee
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Citroen C-Elysee. We can start with the exterior design of the Citroen C-Elysee. Looking at the exterior design of the car, we can say that it has a very simple and standard design. The C-Elysee model is designed as a Subcompact car that will serve the purpose rather than being overly satisfying in terms of aesthetics. Speaking of some characteristic body features, the car's design is larger than most cars in its segment. On the front we see a grille design with the iconic Citroen logo successfully integrated as always. In addition, the wide headlights and the sharp body line extending throughout the body add a strong character to the car. Now, we are moving on to the interior design of the Citroen C-Elysee. Looking at the interior design of the C-Elysee, a driver-oriented design style has been determined to make it easier to use. The layout of the control mechanisms and the layout of the cabin are very useful and simple. The multimedia screen on the centre console is not very large, but it provides a sufficient flow of information to passengers and driver. Although the colour palette is generally used in dark tones, there are also light tone options on the console. Although various parts such as the instrument panel and climate control are manual, they are sufficient for the affordable price of the car.
The Fuel Consumption of the Citroen C-Elysee
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Citroen C-Elysee. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That is why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Citroen C-Elysee has got three standard engine varieties such as 1.2, 1.6 and 1.6 HDi. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is 1.6 HDi. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1560 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 99 HP and 3750 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 1.6 HDi has got a 4,6lt/100km (which refers to 61 MPG in the UK) mpg performance in Urban usage. However, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 3,3lt/100km (which refers to 85 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as Highways or Long-Distance Trip. When we combine these mpg data, we get a 3,8lt/100km (which refers to 74 MPG in the UK) average mpg performance. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is 1.6. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1587 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 115 Horsepower and 6050 RPM Torque. 1.6 has got an 8,7lt/100km (which refers to 32 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG rate decreasing to 5,0lt/100km (which refers to 56 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 6,4lt/100km (which refers to 44 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption data.
