5.4.2012 Skoda announces UK Citygo prices
Skoda has released official pricing for their new Citigo model range. It will be on sale from 1 June 2012, starting at just £7,630.
It will be the first Skoda model to enter the fast growing city car segment – with CO2 from 96 g/km translating to free road tax and congestion charge and fuel economy as high as 68.9 mpg – it is likely to be a popular choice.
Safety was a priority for Skoda with the Citigo, and it earned the maximum Euro NCAP rating of 5 stars. It will be available in 3 or 5 door versions, each sits just under 3.6m long. The interior is spacious enough to comfortably seat four adults, and there is a 251 litre boot space capacity.
A single 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is offered, with either 60PS or 75PS, providing a particularly clean and fuel-efficient drive. Low CO2 keeps road tax down, and model with a sub-100g/km figure means road tax is free. Along with the low purchase price, and fuel economy as high as 68.9 mpg, the new Citigo can be a really affordable city car option.
There are three trim levels available, the S, SE, Elegance – each is offered with 3 or 5 doors. The entry level trim grade, the S, starts at £7,630 and comes with air bags, power steering, daytime driving lights, CD player and 14 inch wheels.
The mid level SE version adds electric windows, body coloured mirrors, ESP, remote central locking and air conditioning as standard, and the 3 door versions cost £8,880.
The Elegance trim costs £9,470 for the 3 door and £9,820 for the 5 door version. It comes with the addition of electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, heated seats, leather steering wheel and front fog lights as standard.
Those models that do have to pay road tax only fall into Band B, meaning annual cost will be free in the first year and just £20 thereafter. Insurance groups are from Group 1E, again keeping costs down. Every new Citigo also comes with complimentary seven-day fully comprehensive cover.
The Citigo has a couple of siblings, which are essentially the same car but sold through different manufacturers. The Volkswagen Up! and the SEAT Mii will offer a similar package, although purchase prices, trim levels and optional extras will vary. This means that there are a number of options of low cost city cars soon to launch into the UK market.
