The Skoda Citigo perfect for the city?
City cars are all the rage these days and with so many models on the road for the division it certainly takes something special to stand out. Some vehicles in the segment which have done this job wonderfully include the Renault Clio, the Corsa from Vauxhall and of course the best selling city car of all time in the United Kingdom, the Ford Fiesta. Today though we will be taking a look into the Citigo which is a three door city car designed by Skoda. The Citigo rises to the challenge as far as offering good value for money and an overall great performer is concerned. One thing you will notice about the Citigo is that it shares a lot of the same similarities as the Up from Volkswagen and the Seat Mii. This is down to the fact that the Citigo is ideally a re badged version of both of these vehicles.
Does the Skoda Citigo fall into the top ten for city cars?
We certainly believe this to be the case yes. For the price of the car and some of the equipment that it carries, we think that this particular model is one of the best value for money cars on offer right now. If we focus our attention on the engine range first and foremost, we can see that the Citigo is neatly equipped with the same one litre engine found in the Mii and the UP. The only difference with this model though is that the engine is offered in different forms. ASG, Manual and Green Tech models are all made available. Thanks to these engines, the car hits out at top speeds of 99 miles per hour and is paired up to a five speed,automatic transmission.
The Citigo is offered in either three or five door designs and comes equipped with body matching mirrors, a chrome surrounded front grille and front fog lights are also included. A total of eight paint jobs are also available with the Citigo. These include Red, Silver,Black,Blue,Metallic Silver,Yellow,White and Green. Inside of the cabin features the options of either a three or four spoke steering wheel. An all Black interior cabin featuring a CD player also comes as standard for the entry level S trim. Buyers can also opt for two other trim levels which include SE and Elegance options. Electric windows also feature in higher trims as do a tan cabin finish rather than the entry level Black.
How much do Skoda sell the Citigo for?
Prices for the Citigo range begin from £8,210 for the entry level S model. If however you would prefer the likes of the SE or Elegance range topping trims, SE begin from £9,070 with Elegance models getting underway from £10,010. Skoda also offer the Citigo on a finance agreement which sees a deposit of £2,686 followed by three years worth of monthly payments costing £75.00 per month.
