Parkers overall rating: 4.2 out of 5 4.2
  • Remains one of the more spacious city cars
  • Plenty of room in the front of the car
  • And a surprisingly roomy rear seat

The way Skoda’s packaged the Citigo-e iV means you get the same amount of space as there was in the petrol Citigo models. That’s because the battery packs are all under the floor and seats, so no space has been eaten up by the batteries in the boot.

So, rear-seat space is still generous for such a small car, and the five-door-only body style means it’s a practical option. The tall, square shape means access is good to the rear seats, and headroom and legroom are both generous for such a dinky car. If there aren’t two giants in the front seats, you can feasibly fit four adults in the car.

Further back, the boot measures up at 250 litres (petrol model pictured below), a size that’s not to be sniffed at for such a small car. folding the rear seats down frees up a total of 923 litres.

Extra cubbies aren’t overly generous – there are decent-sized door bins and glovebox, while a small shelf ahead of the gearlever provides some room for odds and sods. If you want to boost the car’s storage, Skoda’s range of Simply Clever solutions offers things like an actual door bin for the door bins, and a phone holder that slots into the cupholder. But that then means it won’t hold a cup. Overall though, the Citigo-e iV is one of the roomiest small cars you can get.

How safe is it?

  • Boosts safety equipment over regular Citigo
  • Lane Assist included on all models
  • However, latest Euro NCAP rating (2019) drops it to just three stars

All Citigo-e iV models come with driver and passenger airbags, as well as curtain airbags at the front.

They also benefit from a new lane-keeping assist feature that uses a front-mounted sensor package to keep you in the lane and warn you if you start to stray towards the lines. If you do stray over the lines, it’ll nudge you back into place automatically. This wasn't available on the previous, petrol-powered versions of the Citigo.

A warning for the rear seat belts has also been introduced, while there are two Isofix anchors in the rear bench for child seats.

However, at the same time, Skoda has dropped the optional autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system. As a result of this, the most recent Euro NCAP crash test rating, announced in December 2019, has seen the Citigo downgraded from five stars to three stars.

Don't let this put you off too much. Aside from no longer having a system that will try and prevent front-end accidents up to 19mph, this Skoda should prove as safe to drive as it has ever been.
