What used Skoda Citigo hatchback will I get for my budget?
A budget of £3000 will get you an early Skoda Citigo with a medium to high mileage for the year. At this price, you’re looking at an entry-level S trim three-door with the lower-powered engine. For five doors, you’ll need to add around £500 to that budget.
Better-equipped SE Citigos start from £3500, again with an average mileage for the year. If you want a more powerful 74bhp Citigo, expect to pay upwards of £4000, for which you’ll also get more equipment.
Servicing and insurance
Servicing is also cheap (Skoda’s fixed-price menu starts from £159 for a minor service), although you do need to factor in £389 for a cambelt change every three years or 30,000 miles. There are also plenty of independent dealers and garages who will service your car for you, often at reduced rates. Parts, shared with the other cars in the VW group, are plentiful.
Being rated in a low insurance group also makes the Citigo a good choice for young drivers. Groups range from 1 to 9, depending on engine or trim.
