Torch exterior design and cabin tweaks en route for Skoda's Citigo urban district car

Skoda has announced the updated Citigo will be priced from £8,635. It was revealed at the Geneva Motor Disclose back in March with a slight front-end design rethink plus minor changes in the bothy.

At the front, Skoda’s city car gets a tinkered face with a new, creased bonnet extra an ever so slightly revised radiator grille. The car’s front bumper features a wider air air stretching from corner to corner, with new rectangular fog lamps embedded within it.

The headlights now feature daytime LED running lights, while fog lamps with corner tracking contrive the options list.

Elsewhere, tinted tail lights are now on the options list for mid-kind Citigo models, alongside contrasting black or white wing mirrors and roof panels.  A new set of 15-inch blend wheels and a fresh shade of green paint round off the exterior design changes.

The new Citigo range includes four trim levels: S, SE, SE L and Monte Carlo. Entrance-level models get Isofix fittings in the rear and USB ports. SE models (£9,635) charge an additional £1,000 but add 14-inch alloys, LED daytime running lights, air-con, a tincture display and a six-speaker sound system. Step up to SE L (£10,280) and there’s 15-inch blend wheels, a leather multifunction steering wheel, rear parking sensors, frenetic front seats and electrically adjustable, heated door mirrors. Top spec Monte Carlo models (£11,170) best black 15-inhc alloys, 15mm lower suspension, sports seats anda red core console. 

In the cabin a slightly re-arranged dashboard and dial setup is found and on superior-spec cars, a two-tone dash now appears. 

Skoda loves to tout its ‘Simply Sharp’ features, and the Citigo facelift gains a new one  – an umbrella is stored under the commuter seat. 

New-generation Blue and Swing model radio systems appear – the latter gaining a shade display, six speakers plus Bluetooth connectivity for iOS and Android smartphones. 

Engines be left the same with two 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol options – one with 59bhp and the other with 74bhp. A saturated reveal will take place at the Geneva Motor Show next month, where Skoda wishes also reveal Scout and Sportline variants of its new Kodiaq SUV, plus the most int Octavia ever.
