The VW was given the mandatory mid-term refresher up last summer, now draws Skoda with the facelift of the identical Citigo. You can admire the facelift version of the smallest Czechs for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 (March 9-19). Take the best but a good magnifying glass, because too large the changes do not fall out.
Small Tip: The hood has some beading and more lines now. Also has turned the front apron and minimal fiddled at the grill design. However, it is much more exciting that the also redesigned fog lights will have a so-called cornering function. Talk: The Citigo lights in now also in the curve. In turn he automatically to the right or the left fog light up to a speed of 40 km/h.
A glance inside the Skoda Citigo 2017: also here was not to proceed with the really big battle axe. Skoda says, to have made the Interior "still high quality and functional". In the higher equipment, there is a two-coloured dashboard, also the instruments were equipped with a new design. And that apparently twice, because the instrument is available in two different versions. Also new: an optional multi function steering wheel leather. Not quite so new but still good: The many simply-clever solutions such as the compulsory Skoda umbrella under the passenger seat, various storage and hanging possibilities or the large one-litre bottle holder.
As regards security, scores of Citigo with a city emergency brake assist, which automatically operates between five and 30 km/h. At the motor program change higegen nothing. It retains the three single litre three-cylinder petrol engines with 60 68 to 75 HP., The Middle 68-PS variant powered by natural gas as so far and should emit only 82 grams of CO2 per kilometer. The two conventional gasoline engines have a standard consumption of 4.1 litres. Who has speculated on the clear spritzigeren 90-HP Turbo - three-cylinder from the VW up, thus unfortunately will be disappointed. Skoda not continues on him for the Citigo in the offer.
The Citigo face lift of mainly cosmetic nature stays that way. New 15-incher, a new color called Kiwi-green, the more discreet interventions on front and interior space, that's it basically. But what should you dig around also great on a simple, fairly attractive and well functioning city-car concept? Launch of the revised Citigo is after the Geneva show in the spring of 2017. Prices not announced yet Skoda. Off we went so far at 9.770 euros. (black & white)
