Citigo named Top City Car in The Sunday Times Top 100 Cars

Value-packed ŠKODA Citigo wins top Sunday Times award

21/10/2013
The ŠKODA Citigo has just added to its trophy cabinet after being named Best City Car in the annual Sunday Times Top 100 Cars.

Milton Keynes, 21st October 2013 - The influential guide is drawn up each year by The Sunday Times Driving editorial team, who rate each car for value, performance and entertainment.

In awarding the Citigo with the City Car award, The Sunday Times judges commented, “We chose the ŠKODA because we judge it to be the best value, a more important consideration in this class than any other. It’s fun to angle around city streets, and its lively engine heightens the entertainment.”

Since its launch in 2012, the Citigo has collected a raft of industry titles, including Auto Express Car of the Year and Best City Car by What Car?

Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for ŠKODA UK, said: “We’re delighted that The Sunday Times has bestowed its top City Car honour on the Citigo. It’s a car that perfectly embodies ŠKODA’s philosophy of delivering high quality products with attractive designs, at extremely affordable prices.”

ŠKODA has achieved its most daring GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ to date: the farthest flight of an arrow caught by hand from a moving car.

At the 2018 Paris Motor Show, ŠKODA will be presenting itself not just as sporty and sustainable, but also as a mobility services provider. The Czech brand is inviting the show’s visitors to a special digital experience from 2 to 14 October: At the ŠKODA stand in the User Experience corner, they can go through a fictional day as an avatar that they have created themselves and be guided through tailor-made digital offers.

 

With the VISION RS concept study ŠKODA offers a look ahead in Paris, presenting a future compact car and the next stage of development for the sporty RS family. A family that now includes its first ever SUV – the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS. The SCOUT and SPORTLINE variants expand the range for the ŠKODA KAROQ compact SUV.

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.
