Skoda has announced the pricing for one of the most eagerly anticipated UK new car launches this year. ŠKODA‘s all-new Citigo.
After adding a lot of stuff about cars we can’t afford to put petrol in, something I have been watching out for. The Skoda brand’s debut in the fast-expanding city car segment promises to deliver nimble road manners, impressive interior space and a new benchmark in technical sophistication. It’s all wrapped up in the Citigo’s contemporary design that will appeal to every kind of new car buyer. Safety is a priority and the car has already earned the maximum five stars from Euro NCAP.
The Citigo is available in either three or five-door body styles, each just 3,563mm long. With spacious seating for four adults, there’s still 251 litres of boot behind, rising to a class-leading 951 litres when the rear seats are folded down (959 litres on the five-door model).
As you would expect from a ŠKODA, Citigo embodies all of the core values for which the brand has become famous – engineering excellence with a human touch.
Citigo impresses with a number of ingenious storage solutions and clever features such as a photo and document holder and a bag hook integrated into the glove compartment. It’s also the first ŠKODA model to sport the brand’s revised ‘winged arrow’ logo.
A single 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with either 60PS or 75PS provides the cleanest and most fuel-efficient drive possible with CO2 emissions ranging from just 96 to 105g/km, while fuel economy is as high as 68.9mpg.
The Citigo S Model Entry level Citigo S models feature a comprehensive list of standard equipment, including Head/Thorax airbags, height adjustable steering wheel, power steering, daytime driving lights, preparation for portable infotainment device (PID), CD player with aux input and 14-inch steel wheels.
Prices for S trim start at £7,630 for three door and £7,980 for five door.
The Citigo SE Model The mid-level Citigo trim line is SE, which comes with electric front windows, body coloured door mirrors and handles, ESP, remote central locking and air-conditiong as standard.
Prices for SE trim start at £8,530 for three door and £8,880 for five door.
The Citigo Elegance Model In keeping with the rest of the ŠKODA range, Elegance is the Citigo’s flagship trim line. Offering electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, 14-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, leather steering wheel and front fog lamps come as standard. Elegance also includes ŠKODA’s innovative portable infotainment device (PID), which provides customers with an onboard computer, navigation system, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity and a multimedia player in a single removable device.
Prices for Elegance trim start at £9,470 for three door and £9,820 for five door.
The ŠKODA Citigo range offers oustanding value for money and low running costs with VED band ratings as low as A, the lowest possible, and insurance ratings from Group 1E. Every new Citigo comes with complimentary seven-day fully comprehensive cover.
A range of eight striking exterior colours are available, including Candy White, Tornado Red, Spring Green Metallic and Deep Black Pearlescent.
The ŠKODA Citigo will launch in the UK on the 1 June 2012.
