Minor updates to Skoda's city car include a revised front-end design and a tweaked interior

The facelifted Skoda Citigo has been revealed at the Geneva motor show, with tweaked styling and minor interior changes.

The car's bonnet, front grille, bumpers and foglights get a new design, and there are new LED headlights. Inside, very slight changes include a new instrument cluster and optional multifunction leather steering wheel.

The Citigo, which shares its platform with the Seat Mii and Volkswagen Up, has also grown slightly – by 34mm – while its width, height and boot capacity remain the same.

New options include a foglight cornering function, tinted tail-lights, new 15in alloys and a colour package with a white or black colour scheme for the roof and door mirrors. 

Higher trim levels also get a two-tone coloured dashboard, while a high-resolution digital display and light and rain sensors are also optional.

Car review

Skoda's city car gets more standard equipment and remains decent to drive, but the Citigo still lacks the sophistication of the VW Up or the dynamism of the Hyundai i10

Back to top

Skoda says its 'Simply Clever' features now include an umbrella under the front passenger seat, along with various storage compartments and smartphone holders. 

Engines will be carried over from the current model, which means the same 1.0-litre units will be available - with either 59bhp or 74bhp - paired to a five-speed manual gearbox and start-stop system.

There’s no official word on pricing, but it’s unlikely these changes will result in a significant increase. The current model is priced from £10,070 to £11,390.

Big wheels

Manufacturers never seem to show pics ranging from the basic version upwards when new/updated models are released. Doubt I'll ever see a Citigo on the road that actually looks like this one!

How about the 89 bhp tsi engine? Still reserved for the Up then.
