Entry-level S models miss out on height adjustment for the driver's seat, but all other trims get this feature as standard, which makes it easier for anyone particularly tall or short to get comfortable.
As with nearly all city cars, the steering wheel only move up and down (not in and out), so you might find it impossible to dial in the perfect driving position. However, people of most shapes and sizes should find it easy enough to get comfy, and the seat is simple to adjust. Depending on your seating position, the steerin wheel might obscure part of the speedo.
The heating and ventilation controls are sensibly laid out and within easy reach. One mild annoyance is that, on versions with electric front windows, there isn’t a switch for the passenger window on the driver’s side.
Skoda Citigo visibility
Forward and side visibility is excellent; the Citigo’s slender windscreen pillars don’t obstruct your view too badly and the tall side windows provide a good range of sight.
Rear visibility isn’t quite so good, although the Skoda’s rear pillars are still narrower than those in many rivals and its rear screen isn't too poky. The Citigo’s boxy shape and short overhangs also make judging its extremities relatively easy.
If you feel you need extra help when parking, you can add rear parking sensors to all models apart from the entry-level S.
Skoda Citigo infotainment
Entry-level S trim models get a relatively simple CD/radio system with just two speakers. Disappointingly, Bluetooth isn't even available as an option on this trim, although you can have a DAB radio.
Upgrading to SE trim loses you the CD player, but you do get Bluetooth and four extra speakers for improved sound quality. You also get a smartphone holder on the dashboard, which, if you download Skoda's free Move & Fun app, gives you access to TomTom sat-nav directions and various other handy features.
Even if you go for one of the range-topping trims (SE L or Monte Carlo), you'll still have to fork out extra for a DAB radio, although at least all models have a USB socket to charge your phone on the move.
Skoda Citigo build quality
Like all city cars, the Citigo’s interior features lots hard and unforgiving materials. However, the general construction is solid, and the plastics are textured in such a way that they don’t look or feel too cheap.
Monte Carlo versions get contrasting upholstery colours, and all trims from Monte Carlo up get chrome trim highlights and a gloss dashboard panel that really brighten up the interior.
Entry-level S and SE cars make do with a plastic steering wheel that emphasises the Citigo’s budget price a bit too much. However, you can pay a bit extra to have the wheel wrapped in leather on the SE, and this luxurious touch comes as standard on the higher trim levels.
