For Skoda’s Citigo feels grown-up to drive, is economical and well built. It’s also a few hundred pounds cheaper than the Volkswagen Up.

Against The Citigo doesn't look or feel as classy as its Volkswagen Up sister car, and the lower-powered engine can struggle at higher speeds.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Neither the 59bhp nor the 74bhp models are fast, but if urban driving is all you intend to do then the lower-powered Skoda Citigo is fine. However, if you plan to head out of town on a regular basis, then the more powerful model is the better bet.

S, SE and Elegance specifications are available, and even the most basic S has front and side airbags and a CD player with aux input. Step up to SE – which we’d recommend – and you also get air-con, electric front windows, remote central locking, smarter looks and stability control.

Flagship Elegance models add alloy wheels, heated front seats and Skoda’s portable infotainment device, which provides customers with an onboard computer, navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity and a multimedia player in a removable device.

The big question is, perhaps, which of the Skoda Citigo/Seat Mii/VW Up trio you go for, and our answer is: if you want the less powerful engine, go for the Skoda; otherwise, go for the VW.
