The C2 will be available with a choice of three petrol engines and one HDi
diesel engine, adapted to all types of use:
- The 1.1i engine is the entry-level model. Designed for economy, it
develops 44.1 kW (61 bhp) at 5,500 rpm and torque of 94 Nm at 3,200 rpm.
- The 1.4i engine, the mid-range powerplant, is at ease both in the city and
on the open road. It develops 54 kW (75 bhp) at 5,400 rpm and torque of 118
Nm at 3,300 rpm.
- The 1.6i 16V model is the most powerful engine in the range since it
develops 80 kW (110 bhp) at 5,750 rpm with maximum torque of 147 Nm at 4,000
rpm. Associated with the high-performance characteristics of the VTR
version, this engine offers high-level performance and driving pleasure.
- The diesel offering comprises the 1.4 HDi engine developing 50 kW (70 bhp)
at 4,000 rpm for torque of 150 Nm at 1,750 rpm. Particularly economical and
quiet, this second-generation HDi common-rail engine is a strong performer:
smooth and responsive at low engine speeds, suitable for long journeys, etc
The gear ratios reflect the lively style of the C2, in line with its dynamic
Guess you want the 1.6i. That is a lot of power for such a tiny car.
Anything wrong with your current Cit?
110hp is in no way a lot of power and a C2 may be a tiny car but it's not a
light one. In fact, it is heavier than my larger ZX. 1000kg in my book
qualifies for a midrange car. That inflation makes that the inner size does
not follow weight is another problem, and one for all people.

Interesting that the diesel has more torque than the 'performance' 1.6i;
that would suggest very good performance at low speeds, such as in town or
narrow country roads. The 1.9D in my ZX is like that - up to about 50 MPH
(80 KPH) it feels like a much bigger engine. But it does run out of puff
at motorway speeds.
The maximum torque of the 1.6i being at 4,000 RPM suggests that it might not
be too happy at low speeds.

Johan, help me please... I need to find brake disks for my Activa. I am a
bot harsch on brakes, and I wear them soon.
I had them replaced before 25,000klm and now they go like 8....
When i brake at 120klm aprr. I have a trembling on my wheel.
I think the brake disks and pads that Citroen uses are Tarox. I am looking
for Brembo or something better anyway.
Do you know any site???
The dimensions are 288x28x34,2
I found at OMP but they don't have pads for this size !!....
I would I appreciate your help or any other's
