The twin of Vw Up is Skoda Citigo

On 27th Sept 2011 Skoda introduced new model with name Skoda Citigo. Citigo would be in sale in November 2011, first for buyers in Czech Republic.

Skoda Citigo comes as a new member of the smallest VW's model line called New Small Family. The first one is Volkswagen Up! introduced on IAA Frakfurt 2011. Skoda Citigo got the 2nd number and the 3rd will be some Seat model with unknown name till these days.

Common construction of new small family (NSF) determinates the basic proportions for the concern triplets. Top designer of Skoda Jozef Kaban changed some details of Citigo. The main difference to Up! is the boot door. In Skoda model this part is not whole from glass. Citigo is 3.56m long, 1.65m wide and 1.48 tall. In spite of small dimensions the car offers the boot with space of 251 liters. If you will not use rear seats space will grow up to 951liters.

Cheap model Citigo thinks seriously about safety. According to Skoda speech man in this NFS model was side airbags Head-thorax used. These care about safety of front and back passengers as well. The basic  packet should have braking system City Safe Drive. We already introduced this system in information about VW Up! packets.

The same thing like in VW Up! Skoda Citigo in the first production months will be offered with 1l 3 cylinders gas engine.  Engine will have too outputs 44kW or 55kW. At disposal will be green line model with 4.2l/100km gas consumption.
