The Skoda Citigo may share its underpinnings with fellow Volkswagen Group cars the SEAT Mii and Volkswagen up!, but it's more than just a rebadged version of the same car. The exterior is stylish enough to rival the Fiat 500 for small-car charm, while the build quality easily matches the Kia Picanto and the interior space competes the Hyundai i10. And you could even argue it looks better than either the up! or the Mii. And it doesn’t matter which version of the 1.0-litre petrol engine that you choose, because you’ll get strong performance and excellent economy in all of them.
It will sit four people reasonably comfortably, while the boot is much better than you’d normally expect from a small city car, but what most impressed us was how mature it feels to drive - which, when combined with the sheer quality of the interior, shows why we gave it such a high score. In fact, the Citigo offers such a well-rounded package that we named the CarBuyer Best City Car for 2013. The Citigo comes in four main specifications – entry-level S, SE, Elegance and top-of-the-range Sport.
