Skoda Citigo from £7,630

The all-new Citigo - Skoda's first ever entrant in the city car sector - went on sale on the 1st of June, just in time to join the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Sharing its basic architecture and many components with its VW Group siblings, the Volkswagen up! and the SEAT Mii, the Citigo is also the first new model to wear Skoda's revised 'winged arrow' corporate badge.

The newcomer is aimed at younger drivers, families who need a second car and older motorists with an active lifestyle. The Citigo can accommodate four adults, has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and Skoda also claims it has the largest boot in its class.

It's powered by a choice of two 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine comes with either 60 or 75PS, plus the option of GreenTech fuel-saving technologies including stop/start and brake energy recuperation.

A five-speed manual transmission is standard, though an automatic gearbox is available on selected models. It means the Citigo has official combined fuel economy as high as 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 96g/km.

Three trim levels are available - S, SE and Elegance - and each can be personalised with a range of factory and dealer-fit options including the Personal Infotainment Device (PID), a dashboard-mounted touch-screen unit providing Bluetooth, sat-nav, and trip data.

The Citigo is in showrooms now with prices starting from £7,630.
