First pic: Skoda Citigo
This is the new Citigo from Skoda.
Inside, the four-seater’s chair arrangements also seem familiar. So do its dimensions - it’s 3560mm long with virtually no bodywork protruding beyond the wheels. It’s also very narrow - 1650mm wide - and quite short - 1480mm.
It also has a 2420mm wheelbase and can fit 251 litres of, umm, litreage in the boot. Which also reminds us of something.
Engine wise, a pair of 999cc three-pot petrols are available at launch. There’s a 99mph, 59bhp 1.0-litre petrol that produces 62.8mpg and another 74bhp, 70lb ft effort that gets the Citigo to 106mph and produces 108g/km CO2.
We’d be willing to bet that, right now, you’re desperate to discover the Skoda’s DRAG COEFFICIENT AND KERB WEIGHT! Guess what? Curiously, they’re the same as a Volkswagen Up’s (0.33 and 929kg).
Although the outline has strong wafts of another new, small city car, it’s distinguished by Skodary headlights (which ape the manufacturer’s new design language, as seen on the Concept D on display at the 2011 Geneva motor show). And you get a photograph and handbag holder.
How are we feeling about this car, TopGear.commers?
