The new ŠKODA Citigo is a small fun loving yet practical car that is perfect for city living. This exciting new city car is the first ŠKODA to feature the new brand design style as well as the new ŠKODA badge. It's the sixth model in the popular ŠKODA family and is already causing quite a stir.
Available in both 3 and 5 door models, each offers an impressive amount of interior space thanks to its 2.42 metre-long wheel base and will seat 4 passengers with comfort no matter how long the journey. The boot offers 251 litres of useable space, expanding to 951 litres with the rear seats folded down.
Its interior is bright, smart and functional with an uncluttered user friendly instrument panel, numerous storage compartments for all of the essentials, cup holders and multi-media systems. Another clever touch is a portable navigation system which can be fitted to the dashboard and easily removed for use on the go. As well as navigation this system allows hands-free calling with its built in Bluetooth and onboard infotainment.
A newly developed five-speed manual transmission is standard, though an automatic gearbox is available on selected models. There is also the option of GreenTech fuel-saving technologies including start/stop and brake energy recuperation. There are various model grades to choose from depending what specification you are looking for including the S, SE and range topping Elegance which adds Sat Nav, Bluetooth connectivity, heated seats and air con as standard. Each can be personalised further with a range of stylish and desirable accessories and optional extras.
Safety is paramount to ŠKODA and the Citigo has been rated as one of the safest cars in Europe after being awarded the maximum 5 star rating from Euro NCAP. The new Citigo has also been crowned 'Best City Car' and 'Car of the Year' in the Auto Express new car awards which is a great achievement. With low emissions, optimum fuel economy and reasonable operating, the new ŠKODA Citigo is a great offering at a favourable price.
