Revealed to the world shortly after the Frankfurt Motor Show, Skoda's Citigo (The Czech company's take on the VW Up) promised low cost motoring and a little touch of 'fun'.
At March's Geneva show a five-door variant will be shown to the world ahead of a mid- 2012 launch.
Both variants of the Citigo will come with a choice of two engines from launch – both 1.0-litre three cylinder petrol units with either 60 or 75bhp. Later an eco-spec Green tec engine boasting CO2 emissions of 96g/km and 68.9mpg will hit showrooms.
While its UK launch is a way off yet, the Citigo has been launched in the Czech Republic, its home market, to great fanfare.
Now both Skoda and Volkswagen have released details of their five-door Up variants it's just a waiting game until SEAT releases details of its quintuple-portaled Mii.
