The Skoda Citigo is one of the best city cars around; it’s cheaper to buy than a VW Up and just as brilliant to drive, with a ride quality that's far above its budget price. On the right trim, there's plenty of equipment for the everyday city driver, while the cleverly packaged boot space makes it a surprisingly practical option.get the best price
Monte Carlo trim comes with lots of bespoke styling cues, 15in alloy wheels, a sports steering wheel and tinted windows. However, given the relatively high price and standard sports suspension, which serves to worsen the ride with little noticeable improvement to the way the Citigo goes round corners, we wouldn’t bother. SE trim makes far more sense.
The lower-powered of the two 1.0-litre petrol engines is adequate if you do most of your driving around town and, crucially, keeps the price to a minimum. However, it can feel underpowered on faster roads. It’s available with either a manual or automatic gearbox; avoid the auto if possible, though, because its gearchanges are slow and jerky.
