The Skoda Citigo could be available for as little as £75 per month, according to well-placed industry sources.
At its UK launch, Skoda insiders told us that the Citigo could be available under a personal contract hire scheme for an initial deposit of around £2000, followed by monthly payments of £75. Alternatively, a deposit of £145 would mean monthly payments of £145.
The Citigo is closely related to the Volkswagen Up, our 2012 Car of the Year. Leasing deals for the Up currently start at around £85 per month.
Prices for the Citigo will start from £7630 when it goes on sale in June. That's £365 less than the cheapest Volkswagen Up and £215 less than the entry-level Seat Mii – making Skoda's model the least expensive of the three virtually identical city cars.
A five-door version of the Citigo will be launched at the same time and will cost £350 more than the three-door car.
