Full specifications


The Skoda Citigo might be small but it’s also surprisingly practical, with a reasonably sized boot, Isofix child seat mounting points and good comfort levels. Skoda offers both three and five-door models, the latter of which has surprisingly wide-opening rear doors to make loading child seats easy.

The boot might not be huge, but compared to a Citroen C1 it’s generous. At 251 litres it’s actually not that far behind the Ford Fiesta, although the Citigo does have a high load lip to lift heavy items over. The seats also fold forward, giving more than 900 litres of load space.

Material quality impresses and although soft touch materials aren’t used, everything is very solidly screwed together and feels hardwearing. That said, you can see where costs have been cut - the front seats, for example, have one piece backs with no adjustable headrests.

That said, they are comfortable. There’s enough adjustment to find a good driving position with impressive visibility, plus there is space for smaller adults in the back row. Taller passengers won’t be too comfortable, but for teenagers or children there’s ample leg and head room.

Standard equipment on entry level cars is acceptable if you’re after back-to-basics motoring, with an AUX-in audio system but little more – windows and mirrors are manual. Moving up to a higher trim level doesn’t cost very much and brings better levels of gear so go for an SE if you want air conditioning and remote central locking.

Standard Equipment:

S is the entry trim grade and features include 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.

SE is the mid-level trim. It comes with electric front windows, body coloured door mirrors and handles, ESP, remote central locking and air-conditioning as standard.

Elegance gets electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, 14-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, leather steering wheel and front fog lamps. It also comes with the portable infotainment device (PID), which includes an onboard computer, navigation system, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity and a multimedia player.
