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.”
The Citigo range starts from £7,990 OTR and is available in three-and five-door forms and with the option of two frugal engines. The range consists of four trim levels and is currently available from the SE trim and above with 0% APR† representative, up to three years free servicing** and monthly payments from just £69* for the Citigo SE 3D 1.0 MPI 60PS model.
ŠKODA's appearance at the Shanghai Motor Show 2017 (19 – 28 April) is characterized by electric change: With the Vision E study, the company provides its first brand-specific outlook on the future of individual mobility. The emotionally designed five-door SUV coupé can travel up to 500 kilometres on purely electric power and meets the level 3 requirements for autonomous driving. ŠKODA is intensively pursuing the electrification of its model range, and will be offering five purely electric models in various segments by 2025.
ŠKODA DESIGN emphasises its commitment to a distinct design identity with continuous development of its design language. Harmonious proportions, clean-cut lines, bold contours and crystalline features are combined to create a design that places a focus on precision and clarity. One of the sources of inspiration for ŠKODA's designers is Czech crystal glass art, which is characterised by outstanding craftsmanship. This yields an expressive, emotionally charged design which harmoniously combines aesthetics and functionality.
ŠKODA has announced that ordering for the new
Octavia vRS and Scout ranges will open on 1 March, with prices starting from £25,130
cylinder capacity, more power. In the ŠKODA FABIA and ŠKODA FABIA ESTATE, a 1.0
TSI engine with three cylinders and four valves is replacing the 1.2-litre
engine with four cylinders that has been used to date. The new engine offers more
power. The power output of the ŠKODA FABIA 1.0 TSI is 95 PS, while the output
of the more powerful version is at 110 PS but offers an improved torque figure of
200 Nm (previously 175 Nm). Downsizing offers another advantage: the engine’s
fuel consumption has been reduced by up to six per cent. One reason for this is
the three-cylinder engine concept with a reduced weight of the free inertial
forces and a more efficient oil pump. The revised ŠKODA FABIA and ŠKODA FABIA
ESTATE will be introduced to the public for the first time at the Geneva
International Motor Show (7-19 March 2017).
