Skoda Citigo Sport

Owners Rating
Be the first to review

The Skoda Citigo Sport is instantly recognisable over the standard models thanks to its sporty stripes, 15-inch alloy wheels, body kit and slightly lowered sport suspension.

Inside there’s an equally sporting theme, with sporty upholstery. The Sport also comes standard with Skoda’s ‘Portable Infotainment Device’ that is actually a removable sat nav, which incorporates Bluetooth hands-free calling, a trip computer and media player.

Under the bonnet the Skoda Citigo Sport gets no special treatment and uses the lower 59bhp version of the 1.0-litre petrol (a fractionally more powerful 74bhp version is available in other models). The Skoda Citigo Sport has low running costs and will average 64.2mpg.

Good points

The Skoda Citigo family was named Carbuyer’s Best City Car for 2013 and for good reason. It’s hard not to fall for its charms. It has dirt-cheap running costs, is surprisingly roomy inside and feels perfect around town. It has comfortable suspension, offers great value for money and it's even quite fun to drive.

Bad points

Around town, the 1.0-litre petrol engine performs well. But hit the motorway, especially with four passengers, and it understandably struggles. It’s such a shame Skoda didn’t equip the Skoda Citigo Sport with a more powerful engine befitting of its sporty looks.

What you get

  • Alloy wheels
  • Folding rear seats
  • Front fog lights
  • Manual air conditioning
  • Front electric windows
  • Sat nav
  • Bluetooth

Our choice

There is only one engine available on the Skoda Citigo Sport – but the lower-powered 1.0-litre feels plenty quick enough to keep up in the fast-paced city traffic.
