Geneva Motor Show: Skoda Citigo

Anything Volkswagen can do, Skoda can do cheaper. So, here's the VW Up's Czechoslovakian Czech twin, the Citigo, which will be the last of the Up-Mii-Citigo triumvirate to hit the shops.

In an attempt to keep interest stoked - because let's face it, there's not much that's new here - Skoda has given the Geneva show car a tasty little viper stripe and a set of big alloys. Officially, Geneva is the debut of the five-door version, although as you can see, the above is the three-door - somebody was hogging the more practical one when this photo was taken.
Two engines are available, regardless of doors: a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol with either 59- or 74bhp. They endow the Citigo with 62.8- and 60.1mpg respectively.

Skoda believes most will be willing to pay the extra few hundred quid it will cost for the extra doors when the car goes on sale in May.
