Need a plastic-bumpered, open-roofed city car in your life?

Well, put the Adam Rocks brochure down for just a second - you now have CHOICE! Vauxhall appeared to have found its own niche (and with good reason, some may argue) with the Adam, but Citroen is set to gatecrash its party with this new C1 Urban Ride, a crossover-convertible version of its dinky city car.

And, just like with the Adam, you need to put up with a slightly ludicrous name emblazoned upon your French crossover-convertible-city car. It appears the uncanny rock-crawling of a Panda 4x4 is off the menu, though.

Citroen says the Urban Ride ‘illustrates the potential for personalising this city car with its go-anywhere looks’, a rather unsubtle suggestion that it’s merely a cosmetic makeover, though the ride height is up 15mm.

That means front-wheel drive, a five-speed manual gearbox and a likely choice of 68bhp 1-litre and 82bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engines, while you can expect a plethora of vibrant colours to juxtapose with the, ahem, rugged plastic cladding.
