Auto Express's reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.

Beating its (more expensive) identical sister car the Volkswagen up!, the Citigo is still much in favour with owners – although its drop from 2nd place overall in 2014 to 31st in 2015’s Driver Power survey will have Skoda perplexed.

Running costs are clearly still the Citigo’s best attribute, 2nd of all 200 cars surveyed, while its handling and ease of driving rank highly too. Unfortunately, and as per the up!, owners think it could do with more poke around town.

Brand new so very reliable, has green tech so am always happy when I have stopped in traffic and it cuts out in neutral, by pressing the clutch it does start again - great invention

Not one problem to date. Petrol consumption is a lot less than stated in brochure.
