The Skoda Citigo has proved its environmental credentials by winning the What Car? Green Award in the supermini sector.
The magazine’s judges picked the Citigo SE 1.0-litre 60PS GreenTech five-door as best in class. Their deliberations included data on fuel economy and CO2 emissions, as well as levels of nitrous oxides and particulates in exhaust gases.
The What Car? team praised the Citigo’s fuel-saving technologies such as engine Stop/start and regenerative braking, suggesting these would make it even cheaper to run than other versions of the already-frugal Citigo. The category-winning model has an official fuel economy of 68.9mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of only 96g/km.
Chas Hallett, What Car? editor-in-Chief, commented: “The Skoda Citigo offers consumers a great way to reduce their motoring emissions and costs. Put simply, it’s a brilliant little car that offers superb ride and refinement as well as a surprisingly roomy and classy interior.”
