Skoda Citigo Monte Carlo

Edition of Monte Carlo model came to Citigo model too. The official premiere was on Geneva autoshow in spring 2014.

After 2 years of official introduction of brand new model Skoda Citigo, new edition came to market. After regular Sport edition which was more "sporty" than basic model, Skoda Citigo Monte Carlo comes with more luxury package and more thrill.

Monte Carlo is easy recognizable with 15"Aurigo steel wheels, it is possible to order 16" Serpens wheels. Similar to Citigo Sport is closer to road by 15 millimeters. These with black details like black front mask, black stripes with squares on side doors increasing the feeling of dynamic look. We have to add the black rear diffusor in Monte Carlo edition. The color pallet is limited to red Tornado (as in pictures), white candy, silver Brilliant and black Deep.

In the interior are these changes : Leather Trimmed Steering Wheel, Contrast Needlework on
Wheel & Gearshift & Handbrake, decorative door sill covers and satin front part of the board.
Monte Carlo comes from Ambition equipment, it means 4 airbags, EPS, ABS and holding ISOFIX system in the back seats.

The offer of engines is same as on basic model. The base is 1liter 3-cylinder engine with 44kW or 55kW, Then engine options are 1.0 liter CNG with output of 50kW. The transmission is manual.

If you wondered the smallest model of VW - UP! and its brothers Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii  are just small city cars only usable to care woman's handbag, you will be surprised soon.

Sellling price of bicycle carring module is about 400 EUR, but the price of the hitch is currently unknown. It is anticipated that price will be about 200 EUR with electrical equipment.
