The Skoda Citigo Sport gets black alloy wheels, racing stripes, tinted windows and a subtle bodykit

Skoda has revealed a sporty new version of the Citigo – our current car of the year. The Citigo Sport features enhanced styling, inside and out, as well as lowered suspension for sharper handling.

Black 15-inch ‘Auguira’ alloys, smoked fog lights and tinted windows are added to the exterior, along with front and rear spoilers, a rear diffuser and contrasting racing stripes running from the front to the rear. Sports suspension lowers the Citigo by 15mm.

Three colour combinations are offered – Candy White with red stripes, Tornado Red with black stripes and Deep Black with red stripes – while the interior is lifted by black and red sports seats fitted as standard. A three-spoke leather steering wheel, leather handbrake and a two-tone grey and black dashboard are also added on the inside.

Based on the Citigo SE spec, the Sport comes with Skoda’s Personal Infotainment Device (PID). The removable five-inch screen clips in on top of the dash and features sat-nav, Bluetooth for hands-free calls and a media player that can be synced to your phone or MP3 player.

Only available with the 59bhp 1.0-litre engine, the Citigo Sport is on sale now costing £10,290 for the three-door version and £10,640 for the five-door.
