Black to the future as ŠKODA introduces striking new addition to the Citigo range

20/10/2015
ŠKODA is set to add to its style credentials with the introduction of a new Citigo Black Edition. Featuring a striking exterior and interior design package, the latest addition to the award-winning Citigo range delivers incredible value for money, with prices starting at just £9,990.

Milton Keynes, 20 October 2015 – Available in three or five-door form, the Citigo Black is powered by a 1.0 MPI 60PS engine and packs a strong visual punch thanks to its standard Deep Black or Candy White paint and 15-inch Black Auriga alloy wheels. Sunset glass for the rear windows and body-coloured door mirrors are also fitted as standard, giving the Citigo Black powerful road presence.

The new Citigo Black Edition features SKODA’s innovative Portable Infotainment Device (PID) that provides drivers with an array of features including satellite navigation, a hands-free Bluetooth connection and multimedia player. The Black Edition also comes with manual air-conditioning as standard, along with the Citigo Entertainment pack that consists of four additional loudspeakers and a multimedia holder. Electric front windows and a height-adjustable driver seat complete the Citigo Black’s generous specification list.

The new Citigo Black Edition is available to order now priced from £9,900 OTR. A full list of prices for the Citigo Black Edition follows. For further details of these and other award-winning ŠKODA models see skoda.co.uk.

A design sketch provides a first glimpse of the interior of the new ŠKODA SCALA. The new compact model will be the first ŠKODA to feature the latest infotainment generation with a free-standing display positioned high up, in the driver’s immediate field of vision. The optional Virtual Cockpit has the biggest display in its class. In addition to new interior trims and premium materials the SCALA also offers a generous amount of interior space, along with the largest luggage compartment in this segment, at 467 litres.
Following on from the first silhouette images, ŠKODA reveals the name of its new model – the ŠKODA SCALA. The name derives from the Latin word ‘SCALA’ which means ‘stairs’ and is a step forward for the Czech car manufacturer in the compact hatch segment. The SCALA is the first ŠKODA production model in Europe to carry the ŠKODA name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the ŠKODA logo.
ŠKODA is introducing a new, fully programmable digital instrument panel to its KAROQ, OCTAVIA, SUPERB and KODIAQ ranges - giving the customers the option to replace traditional analogue dials and gauges with a high-definition electronic display for the first time.
ŠKODA AUTO continues on the road to success. From January to the end of September, the car manufacturer increased its worldwide deliveries to customers by 7.8% year-on-year to a new record of 939,100 vehicles. ŠKODA AUTO also achieved sales revenue of 12.6 billion euros, an increase of 2.1% and the best result in the company’s history. The operating profit of 1.1 billion euros remained high in the first three quarters, but was negatively influenced by high financial expenditures for new models, electromobility and higher personnel costs.
ŠKODA is releasing a silhouette picture to grant the public a first look at its future model for the popular compact class. It provides a first taste of the distinctive and dynamic design of this five-door model. This hatchback model translates the emotive design language of the study ŠKODA VISION RS, which recently attracted attention at the Paris Motor Show, into a production vehicle.

Baking fever has once again gripped the nation – and ŠKODA UK is no exception. The car manufacturer has partnered with celebrity baker and 2016 Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown to re-imagine a delicious, small-scale replica of the iconic Fabia cake. It comes more than a decade after ŠKODA’s advert, which saw a life-size version of the Fabia car made entirely out of cake.
