Citroen C2 VTS 2014

It’s just an harmless turning off a peaceful nation street. Single-track, an unpleasant, plummeting ribbon of scarred bitumen with sufficient evil cambers to indicate disregard for just about any EU road-building directive. The surface area differs in peak by a foot: two troughs worn from the passage of the thousand tractors. İnclude in cheering followers and blistering warmth, and when it was not for your verdant landscape in my peripheral eyesight, this might be considered a extend from the Tour de Corse rally. Certainly the Citroën C2 VTS’s nose will scrape the tarmac using the ‘skkkershh’ of the WRC car’s grounding entrance splitter? It does not. The small Citroën jiggles furiously but tightly, purposefully. No sound, no shards of sump within the rear-view mirror. Now I’m on the fantastic line for a quick correct more than a bridge: distinct exit, gentle verge, gravel, temptation. Simple correct more than crest – reduce perhaps. I’ve by no means experienced an ‘easy correct more than crest – reduce maybe’ second inside a C2 VTR. Has anybody? Autocar does not just like the C2 VTR. A lot of of us right here have sufficient recollections – as well as crumpled services invoices and previous MoTs – of prior Peugeot-Citroën scorching hatch classics to drop to get a ‘yoof market’ unique that is sluggish, hobbled by an atrocious gearbox along with a chassis of restricted capability. Regardless of preliminary denials, nevertheless, the C2 has spawned a warmer design within the mould from the previous Saxo VTS with which it shares its title, and also the United kingdom will get it initial. The VTS utilizes exactly the same 1587cc 16v motor because the C2 VTR – by itself carried more than in the Saxo. Citroën cites modifications towards the cams, valve springs, gas injection and exhaust methods, in addition to a new aluminium inlet manifold, and energy jumps in the VTR’s 110bhp to 125bhp at 6500rpm, 5bhp greater than the previous Saxo. There is 105lb ft of torque, 2lb ft down around the Saxo but unfold more than a broader variety and peaking at 3750rpm rather than 5200rpm.
