After Volkswagen came up with their version of a compact car the UP!, we expected Skoda to do something on similar lines and here it is. Skoda has showcased a new small car, the Citigo, which is based on the same platform as Volkswagen UP!. This small Skoda has taken design cues from all possible Skoda concepts such as the VisionD and the latest MissionL. Talking about dimensions it’s a pretty compact car which is 3560 mm long, 1650 mm wide and 1480 mm high. Skoda claims that the 2420 mm wheelbase is sufficient enough for making four adults sit and travel even long distances without any haste. Boot space on the other hand is a decent 251-liters which doubles up to 951-liter when rear seats are folded down.
The Skoda Citigo is going to be aimed and made only for amazing fuel efficiency with the 1.0-liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine with two power outputs which are 56 BHP and 74 BHP. The Citigo will be offered in both the Autobox and manual gear box. Sitting below the Fabia platform, if Skoda plans to jump in the mass market they can launch this car with maximum localisation helping them to price the car competitvely against the Maruti Suzuki WagonR, Hyundai i10 and Honda Brio. Will a 4-door version of this car attract you to buy it?
