World debut for five-door Skoda Citigo

Skoda will present the new Citigo subcompact to the public as a five-door version for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show.

The five-door version will be launched in European markets together with the three-door version from mid-May 2012.

The Citigo represents Skoda’s entry into the fast growing subcompact segment. The new model was successfully introduced in Skoda’s home market, the Czech Republic, in late 2011. From this year, the Citigo is to conquer new customer groups for Skoda, thus contributing to the brand’s growth strategy. Skoda aims to increase its worldwide deliveries to a minimum of 1.5 million units a year by 2018.

The Citigo’s designers placed great emphasis on safety, winning the car the top score of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test.

Powering the Citigo is a three-cylinder petrol engine with one litre of displacement in two versions with 44 kW/60 hp or 55 kW/75 hp. In its most efficient Green tec variant, the new Citigo achieves a mileage of 4.1 l/100 km, CO2 emissions in the new Skoda model amount to 96 g CO2/km.

The smallest member of the Skoda family has recently become Best City Car in the largest Czech poll, the Car of the Year 2012.
