Skoda offers S, SE and Elegance trims, with all featuring ESP, air-con and a host of airbags, plus autobrake as an option, but Elegance gets heated seats, sat-nav and Bluetooth as standard.
Buyers can pick from 59bhp and 72bhp versions of the superb 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that powers all cars in the VW Group trio. For the lowest fuel consumption, go for the 59bhp GreenTech model, which promises 68.9mpg economy and road tax-free 96g/km emissions.
There’s a choice of three and five-door bodystyles. The five-door is obviously easier to get into, but given the compact dimensions, all models provide a surprising amount of interior space for four people. Boot size is generous, too – it can be expanded from 251 litres to 959 litres by folding the rear seats. Service intervals are every 10,000 miles, as with the up!, but the Citigo offers more for the money than the VW.
