a few weeks ago we were testing the subcompact Volkswagen up!. A model of contained dimensions that proved to be a great product, although at a price a little high, for those people who normally only use it for urban roads. The up! was developed together with the Seat Mii and the Skoda Citigo, sharing almost everything except the emblems. The model of Volkswagen received a facelift last year and the Czech does now own it.
The Skoda Citigo recently presented a restyling that varies its external image to rejuvenecerla, a change in the possibilities of interior design and also features a new infotainment system. The spellings of the box instruments have been reviewed. For its part, there are no mechanical changes.
changes in the exterior design help to give a new image to this urban model. Find new hood, headlamps with LED daytime running light and bumper with a new grille. Meanwhile, the lights of fog now perform also the function of lighting in the curve, kicking in when we make a turn closed. Also you will find a new rims. This redesign allows the Skoda Citigo, like the Volkswagen up!, grow a few centimeters in terms of length (3,4 cm) coming now to the 3.60 metres long. the rest of The dimensions remain unchanged.
In the interior the main change is the introduction of a new infotainment system connectivity for both phones with iOs system such as for smartphones that use Android. The rest of the interior remains practically unchanged, except for the new spellings of the box of the instruments before mentioned and the possibility of choosing a new finish bicolor.
, the range mechanics is maintained. That is to say, we find 1.0 of three-cylinder petrol engine in powers of 60 and 75 HP, and may also opt to have an engine CNG (also works with gasoline) 68 CV. The funny thing is that Skoda has not taken advantage of this restyling to enter in the range the engine 1.0 TSI of the Volkswagen Group, which itself is available in its cousin Volkswagen up!. We do not understand this strategy.
