Five door SKODA Citigo to debut in Geneva

SKODA will debut the new Citigo as a five-door version at the Geneva Auto Salon in March 2012.

The five-door version will be successively launched in European markets together with the three-door version from mid-May 2012.

The Citigo represents SKODA's entry into the fast growing subcompact segment. The new model was introduced in SKODA's home market, the Czech Republic, in late 2011. From this year, the Citigo is to target new customer groups for SKODA, thus contributing to the brand's growth strategy. SKODA aims to increase its worldwide deliveries to a minimum of 1.5 million units a year by 2018. In 2011, the company achieved yet another sales record in its 117-year corporate history, selling 879,200 units.

Powering the Citigo is a three-cylinder petrol engine with one litre of displacement in two versions with 44 kW/60 hp or 55 kW/75 hp. In its most efficient Green tec variant, the new Citigo achieves a mileage of 4.1 l/100 km, CO2 emissions in the new SKODA model amount to just 96 g CO2/km.

The Citigo's designers placed great emphasis on safety, with the car receiving a five star Euro NCAP rating. The new city car is also the first SKODA model to sport the brand's new logo.

The smallest member of the SKODA family has recently become Best City Car in the largest Czech poll, the Car of the Year 2012.
