There's no shortage of great city cars on the market, with cute styling, innovative packaging solutions and rock-bottom running costs the order of the day. AOL Cars gets its hands on the latest version of the Skoda Citigo to see if it has what it takes to be a top-class town runabout.

What is it?

This is Skoda's smallest car, and if it looks familiar, don't worry – it shares almost everything with its siblings from the VW Group: the Volkswagen up! and Seat's Mii. That endows it with great packaging from its square body, a choice of two naturally-aspirated three-cylinder petrol engines, and a cracker of a chassis that makes twisting back roads an absolute riot. As with any city car, it's hardly the ideal companion for longer journey, but it's a great commuter.
