New Skoda Citigo - For The City

When the government announced the hike in fuel prices the automobile companies have started to focus more on small cars that consumes less fuel and thus have lower maintenance / operating costs. The Czech automaker Skoda Auto is now planning to bring its hatch Skoda Citigo. As the name suggests 'citygo', the new car will be a city car and is going to hit the Indian Car market soon.

The new Skoda Citigo is based on the Volkswagen Up. When we compare the two cars the difference lies in the headlamps, newly stylised tail lamps, different alloys wheels and refurbished bumpers. Moreover, Citigo is one of the cars to offer emergency braking functionality.
European Version - 3 door Citigo
 The car will be available in a three door version but it can be assumed that India will get a 5-door version. The design of Citygo is unique and doesn’t look like the trademark Skoda models (especially that traditional familiar grille). In three door version, the 'Easy Entry' system allows easy access to the rear seats. The same can be expected in the India bound 5-door version. The engines also will be available in two trims; one with three-cylinder 1.0 litre petrol engine will be producing 60 HP and 75 HP for the international markets. There are rumours also that the car will be available in electric version in future as well. Citigo is expected to deliver a decent mileage and with very low emissions.

The car looks sporty, compact, muscular body panels and narrow vertical tail lamps. When you look it from inside, the interiors of Citigo looks fresh and lively. It has same two-tone color theme as seen on other Skoda models and to keep the costs on the lower side it’ll have same parts as that of the Fabia. The steering and the gear lever both have similar looks as that of Fabia and moreover, the two smaller pods in the speedometer console have also been derived from the Fabia.  When we talk about its safety - the top-end Citigo will come with ABS and air-bags. It’ll also come fitted with head-thorax side air bags – ‘a first time for India’, to protect the head of both the driver and the front seat passenger.

The Skoda Citigo price will be range from Rs 3.5 lakh for the base model and the top end is expected to be around Rs 5.0 lakh. This pricing can work wonders in Indian market if bought to reality. The design is fresh from the Skoda stable and seems a lot inspired from its “Mission L” concept. Citigo is a perfect example of Skoda’s new philosophy ‘Simply Clever’.
