2012 Skoda Citigo prices revealed

The Skoda Citigo will cost from 7630 when it goes on sale in June.

That's 365 less than the VW Up and 215 less than the Seat Mii, making Skoda's model the cheapest of the three virtually identical city cars.

A five-door version of the Citigo will go on sale at the same time and will cost 350 more than the three-door car.

The Citigo is available in three trims: S, SE and Elegance. The entry-level model gets steel wheels, and comes with a height-adjustable steering wheel and a CD player with aux input.

SE-trim versions start at 8530, and get air-con, electric front windows, stability control and remote central locking.

Top-spec Elegance cars get alloys, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, heated front seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and front foglights. A removable sat-nav infotainment system with Bluetooth is also standard.

Like the Seat Mii and VW Up, the Citigo comes with a choice of two three-cylinder petrol engines with either 59 or 74bhp. A five-speed auto gearbox is also available.
