ŠKODA CITIGO: nimble, practical and with a new design

29/06/2017
ŠKODA is upgrading the smallest member of its model range. The ŠKODA CITIGO is being launched with three or five doors and many new design, technology and equipment features. The city car stands out in the crowd. The front, side and rear sections display precise shapes, defined edges and smooth surfaces. Instantly recognisable as an attractive, modern and practical city runabout. The ŠKODA CITIGO embodies modern technology and modern urban mobility.

Mladá Boleslav / Prague, 29 June 2017:


Design: compact yet spacious

With a length of 3,597 mm, width of 1,645 mm and height of 1,478 mm (five-door model), the ŠKODA CITIGO is one of the most compact yet spacious cars in its segment. There is a choice of three trim levels: S, SE and SE L. The ŠKODA CITIGO is also available as a Monte Carlo edition.

The completely revised front section includes a new bonnet with powerdome design, a modified bumper, revamped fog lights and a redesigned radiator grille in the typical ŠKODA design. The headlights feature LED daytime running lights (standard from SE) and the fog lights are now available with a cornering function (optional). City Safe Drive with light and rain sensor as well as Light Assist with Coming Home function also provide greater comfort (optional from SE trim level).

The redesigned rear section is characterised by the dark-tinted tail lights (from the SE trim level upwards). In the Style and Ambition trim levels, the roof and the wing mirrors are available in white or black as an optional extra (not applicable for the body colours Sunflower Yellow and Dark Sapphire Blue).

14-, 15- and 16-inch alloy wheels are available. The new 15-inch ‘Conan’ alloy wheel (optional for SE L trim level) is available in silver. The shape of the eight spokes creates the impression of a turbine. In terms of body colours, the vibrant standard colour Kiwi Green replaces the metallic colour Spring Green.

In the interior, the city car presents large interior dimensions that are typical of ŠKODA. The ŠKODA CITIGO offers a boot capacity of 251 l and elbow room of 1,369 mm (in the five-door). With the rear seats folded down, the boot can hold 951 l in the three-door and 959 l in the five-door. The long wheelbase of 2,420 mm creates plenty of space in the rear; four people can enjoy journeys in comfort. The EasyEntry function in the three-door version (standard in SE and SE L trim levels) makes it easier for passengers to get into the back.

The rear headroom is a generous 947 mm (993 mm in the front). Elbow room in the rear, which measures 1,389 mm in the three-door and 1,388 mm in the five-door, is also very generous.


Driver assistance systems and comprehensive safety equipment

The emergency brake helps to prevent rear-end collisions in city traffic. The assistance feature is automatically active at speeds up to 19 mph. A laser sensor, which is integrated in the rear-view mirror mount, scans an area of 10 m in front of the vehicle. In the event of an impending collision – if the driver does not react – the braking system is primed in the first instance and the hydraulic Brake Assist function becomes more sensitive. The system also initiates a full application of the brakes to bring the car to a standstill if required, or – if the driver is not braking hard enough – it automatically increases the braking force.

Standard equipment includes four airbags, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), a traction control system, Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), electromechanical power steering, three-point seat belts for all four seats, belt tensioners for those in the front, Isofix anchor points on the rear seats (including top tether fastening), automatic activation of the hazard lights in the event of emergency braking, Hill Hold Control and tyre pressure monitoring.


A choice of two engines with three cylinders

Modern three-cylinder engines are used in the ŠKODA CITIGO. The front-, transverse-mounted engines produce 44 kW (60 PS) and 55 kW (75 PS), and drive the front wheels. The cylinder capacity is 1.0 l (999 cc) in each case. Despite the small cylinder capacity, all power variants of the 1.0-l powertrain are characterised by high torque with low noise levels and high efficiency. All engines meet the strict requirements of the EU6 emissions standard. In addition, models at all trim levels can be equipped with GreenTech technology as an option, which optimises fuel consumption.

The entry-level engine is the 1.0-l engine with 44 kW (60 PS). Maximum torque of 95 Nm is achieved at 3,000 rpm. The ŠKODA CITIGO accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 14.4 seconds. Its top speed is 162 km/h. In combination with the five-speed manual transmission, it has a combined consumption of 4.4 l per 100 km on average and emits 101 g of CO2 per km. In the particularly fuel-efficient GreenTech version, these values are 4.1 l per 100 km and 96 g CO2/km respectively.

With the same cylinder capacity (999 cc), the more powerful engine variant of the ŠKODA CITIGO delivers 55 kW (75 PS). 90 per cent of its maximum torque, which is also 95 Nm, is available at 3,000 rpm. Top speed: 173 km/h (with manual transmission), acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h: 13.5 seconds. Combined consumption with manual transmission averages 4.4 l per 100 km, corresponding to CO2 emissions of 101 g/km. In the GreenTech version, the engine consumes 4.1 l per 100 km, with CO2 emissions of 96 g/km.


UK specification

Citigo S models feature a black radiator grille, Isofix child seat fittings on the rear seats, ticket holder on the windscreen and the Blues radio system with SD card slot, USB port, two speakers and aux-in and CD player functions. Prices for S trim start at £8,635 (OTR) for the three-door model and £8,985 (OTR) for the five-door with 1.0-litre 60PS engine.

Choose an SE for another £1,000 and you benefit from 14-inch alloy wheels, chrome radiator grille surround, tinted rear lights, LED daytime running lights, air-conditioning, height-adjustable driver’s seat and Swing Radio with colour display, Bluetooth, SD card slot, USB port, six speakers and a Smartphone holder for app-based navigation and other functions. The SE model is also available in GreenTech specification for greater fuel efficiency for £9,975 (OTR) and with the ASG automated gearbox for £10,280 (OTR) in 60PS three-door form. Colour Editions are based on the SE and add 15-inch Crux Alloy wheels in black or white, metallic paint, tinted rear glass and front fog lights for an £855 premium.

With prices starting from £10,525 (OTR) for the same 60PS engine, flagship SE L models gain 15-inch Crux alloy wheels, chrome interior door handles, leather multifunction steering wheel, leather gearshift handle and handbrake lever, rear parking sensors, heated front seats and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.

Meanwhile those looking for a sportier feel from their Citigo can order a Monte Carlo edition, based on the SE but adding 15-inch Crux alloy wheels in black, 15mm lower suspension, sports seats and upholstery, red centre console, leather multifunction sports steering wheel and special Monte Carlo styling and badging.

ŠKODA is offering a first glimpse of the new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS high-performance SUV by releasing two design sketches. Several accents in gloss black accentuate the dynamic appearance of the new, top-of-the-range SUV. It’s the first time the vRS initials, which are exclusively reserved for ŠKODA’s sportiest models, have been seen on an SUV. The emotive design comes alive thanks to the interplay of elegant lines, sporty contours and the typical robust nature of an SUV. The 240 PS ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS will make its debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
ŠKODA is continuing to whet appetites for the new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS. Ahead of the car’s official world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October, the Czech manufacturer is releasing yet more photographs of its features. The first SUV in the portfolio of ŠKODA vRS models impresses not only with its 240 PS diesel engine, but also with its sporty and elegant design, highlights in high-gloss black and 20-inch Xtreme alloy wheels.
Global demand for ŠKODA models continues to rise: In August, the Czech brand delivered 91,800 vehicles to customers, exceeding the previous year's result by 6.6% (August 2017: 86,100 vehicles). ŠKODA achieved particularly high growth rates in Russia (+33.5%) and China (+11.5%). Once again, the company also grew in Europe compared to the same period last year (+6.0%). The ŠKODA KAROQ, comprehensively modernised FABIA and the CITIGO achieved double-digit increases. The KODIAQ RS, KAROQ SCOUT and KAROQ SPORTLINE as well as the VISION RS concept study are celebrating their world premieres in Paris.
ŠKODA is revealing several details about its new KODIAQ RS ahead of the high-performance SUV’s official world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
