2007 Citroen C2 VTR 1.6 litre from Australia and New Zealand




Not a thing, but I have only just got it.

General Comments:

I have only had this car for just on a week now, so not very long. So you might ask why I am posting this review? Well in answer to your question, when I was looking at buying a new car, there were just a few things I wanted from a car; cheap to run. looks nice. good build quality and reliable. So like most people, I jumped on the Internet and started to research vehicles that I was interested in, one of those being the Citroen C2.

I didn't really find much help other than this web site. But even after reading these posts, I still was unsure on this senso-drive thingy. Even after test driving it, I was still going do I like it or not.

Anyhow, after lots of deliberation, I bought the C2 VTR with the senso-drive and I love it. It's great fun and it is so easy; why anyone would have a normal manual when you can have these paddles? I just wouldn't understand. It's just as smooth as any other manual gear shift, but it has the option of being an auto–manual as well the best of both worlds.

The car is great, and also the finish is great.

The 1.6 engine is strong, and it handles with grip.

So that's that; I hope this helps others looking for info, and I will be adding another review in a few months or so just as an update.

I am taking delivery of a C2 1.6i 16v VTR Sensodrive in Poseidon Blue next month as I am a fan of the sensodrive gearbox, after owning my 05 C3 1.6i 16v exclusive sensodrive for nearly 3 years next month. It just had its mot and flew through it with no problems. If this new car will be as good as the C3 I've got now, I will be pleased.

I am planning to buy a new Citroen C2 VTR, and I found this site, which was very helpful for my decision. I believe that all the gearbox problems are due to software, which is something easier to fix than if it was mechanical. I'd like to ask here does somebody knows if there is any upgrade or improvement in the engine, since this car model appeared till this day, or is it still the same? I'd appreciate your comments. Thank you, and thanks to this comment site.

Great car



General Comments:

Excellent in paddle shift manual mode. Very quick.

The car I had before was a Daihatsu YRV 130 Turbo semi auto, but find the Citroen much better.

2007 Citroen C2 VTS 1.6i 16v (125bhp) from UK and Ireland


It is an OUTSTANDING car


Bolts on the intake manifold sheared off.

Paintwork chips quite easily.

General Comments:

The car is amazing!

Very quick - I can keep up with my mate's Fiesta ST!

Handles like a go-kart!

It's only insurance group 8!

The ESP is spot on!

Amazing sound off the engine when you hit high revs!

It's a rev happy engine, which is great!

RPM light is a great touch!

Front seats are very supportive!

The heaters are brilliant!

Air-con as standard!

However the interior materials look a bit cheap.

3rd gear is a bit flat.

The C2 VTS may get to be too common, like the Fiesta Zetec-S.

Where did this come from about the C2 being faster than the ST150? I have never had a VTS keep up with me and I'm also able to out brake them at every corner. I have even seen a Zetec S pass one, LOL :)

I own a C2 VTS and have licked many STs, but I think it may been down to driver, and a well driven C2 VTS will indeed keep up with one in the right hands.

A VTS will stick to an ST (maybe on a track, lap after lap, it might pull ahead) but on the roads, there will be nothing between them. Fiesta is a much better car all around, apart from the insurance.

My C2 VTS eats an ST easy LOL. I race them every weekend just for a warm up in Thurrock Lakeside Essex. The C2 weighs next to nothing, and is always a good thing when racing. The 1.6 injected engine is all it needs to kill a lot of 2 litre cars, and with the Fiesta ST, it's a very over hyped car, which people think is quick when it's not.

A lot of people think if it has racing stripes, it will go faster and win races LOL. Well it's Ford, and generally it will break down in its first year of being built, like most Fords.

I've been driving the C2 VTS for just over a year now, and I've put hardly any mods on it, and it never lets me down with a race. A lot of the time if you beat one, it's only because the driver doesn't know how to work the stick quick enough.

Don't let the go faster stripes intimidate you; it's only a sticker LOL.
