With ESP and side Head Thorax airbags fitted as standard the new Citigo is one of the safest cars in its class achieving a 5-star rating from the EuroNCAP.

Marking SKODA’s entry into the small car market, SKODA Ireland has created an attractive finance option for Citigo called PCP Solutions. This package provides customers with an attractive 1.99% APR over 3-years which also includes 3-years servicing, warranty and roadside assist from p99 per month.

Manual transmissions are the norm in this segment however SKODA is confident they can grow sales with their new automatic transmission. For just p750 customers can avail of their new ASG 5-speed automatic transmission that also has the benefit of sequential gear changing.

Satellite Navigation is also rare in this segment however all Citigo models come equipped with a mobile-sat-nav docking station as standard to which Skoda’s optional mobile navigation system (p349) can connect. This system also provides BlueTooth hands free and mp3 play back functionality for increased safety and comfort.

From a financial perspective the Citigo ticks all the boxes.

For further peace of mind we have 3-years warranty and roadside assist.”
