So, after two years using my family car -the Toyota Verso-, and after months searching for a car, finally, a week back ago, and a lot of discarded cars, llast week at the end I chose the one that is my current car. A Citroën C2 VTS (the sportiest C2 trim), from 2005.
That model is black, and it comes with some extras, like the rain sensor for the wipers, climate control and automatic lights. And the best of all, with 54.000km, used by a woman to carry the kids to the school.
When you enter into the cabin, the first that do you notice is that is big inside compared with the exterior dimensions: You don’tt feel overwhelmed by lack of space.
When you start the car, the engine sound is funny. It remembers to a motorbike engine. Is a very peculiar (and normal) sound produced by the intake of that cars (the same happens to the VTR with the TU5 engine).
The VTS trim, compared with a standard C2, it comes with stiffer springs, shocks and stabilizer bars, a close-ratio 5-speed manual gearbox, 16-inch wheels, and of course, the TU5 JP4S (NFS) engine: a naturally aspirated 1.6L 4-cylinder engine, 16-valve DOHC, with 125hp.
Soon, I will post more photos, and talk about the driving experience about that small hot hatch.
