Skoda Citigo hatchback front space
The Citigo is surprisingly spacious in the front. There’s lots of head and leg room for tall adults and plenty of space for your elbows.
Storage space is also good by city car standards. There are wide, deep door pockets and the single cupholder, located centrally below the dashboard, is nice and deep. A small shelf dividing an open-faced cubbyhole behind the gearknob is another practical touch.
The Citigo’s glovebox provides enough room for the car’s instruction manual and a sunglasses case, but that's about it.
Skoda Citigo hatchback rear space
The Citigo can seat only four, whereas some rivals, including the Fiat Panda and Hyundai i10, can carry five.
However, the Citigo is almost as wide in the back as it is in the front, so there’s plenty of elbow room for a couple of burly blokes. Rear head room is also impressive by the standards of the class, although leg room is tight for adults – especially if they’re sitting behind someone tall. If you carry more than one passenger on a regular basis, the i10 is a better choice.
Getting into the back of the three-door model is a bit of a squeeze, but the five-door version has wide door openings and, once inside, each rear passenger gets a well-placed door armrest and a cupholder.
Skoda Citigo hatchback seating flexibility
Opt for entry-level S trim and, although you can fold down the rear seats, they drop in one long and decidedly cumbersome piece. SE versions and above get more user-friendly 60/40 split-folding seats.
Unfortunately, a height-adjustable passenger seat isn’t available on any model and there’s no option of a folding front passenger seat for those occasions when you want to carry extra-long items.
Every three-door version (apart from S trim) comes with front seats that automatically slide forward to improve access to the seats behind.
Skoda Citigo hatchback boot space
You don’t expect a city car to have a big boot, but the Citigo’s is generous enough. There’s also no wheel arch intrusion at the outer edges, so the boot floor is a nice square shape.
A variable-height boot floor is optional on all models, allowing you to keep fragile items safely stowed away below a removable floor. In its highest setting, this handy contraption also irons out the large step in the load bay floor that you’re otherwise left with when the rear seats are folded down.
The rear seatbacks lie at a slight angle when dropped, but it’s not enough to cause any real headaches. Annoyingly, though, the parcel shelf isn’t attached to the tailgate, so it has to be raised and lowered manually.
