Used Skoda Citigo (Mk1, 2012-2019) review - What do owners think?
The Skoda Citigo has been a regular near the top of our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey
The Citigo last appeared in our Driver Power new car survey in 2016, when it came an impressive 11th; it scored poorly for in-car technology (ranking 117th) and performance (92nd). Mid-table scores for comfort and practicality were more encouraging, while top-10 places for reliability, running costs, handling, ride quality and ease of driving all helped to secure that 11th position.
It’s worth remembering that the Citigo is essentially an up! in a Skoda suit, so the use of VW parts should provide some reassurance and a reason to consider it over rival city cars.
Skoda consistently scores well in the manufacturer rankings, too, finishing well within the top 10 on a regular basis. Dealers are polite and reasonably priced, while problems are few and far between.
Our 2021 Driver Power best manufacturers survey resulted in a 12th place finish for Skoda. A score of 86.68 per cent placed the budget brand higher than Mercedes (13th), Volkswagen (17th) and BMW (21st). You should experience very few problems when visiting a Skoda dealer.
