Verdict

The Skoda Citigo is the Czech firm’s first venture into the world of the city car. Based heavily on the architecture of the Volkswagen up!, all the ingredients are present to make it a capable car that appeals to a broad spectrum of society. It makes an ideal first car, due to its extremely low running costs, while it also works for a young family since there are several clever touches which improve practicality. The more mature driver may consider down-sizing to a Citigo as their needs change and the requirement for a larger car just isn’t there anymore. Even fleet drivers may be interested since company car tax bills are extremely small. However, by entering the super-small car market Skoda is going toe-to-toe with the likes of Volkswagen and SEAT, both of which have cars based on the same platform. Then there’s the Ford Ka, an excellent car in its own right. Does the Citigo have what it takes to stand out and appeal in a way its competition can’t? Read on to find out.
