Skoda Ireland has launched its new small car, the Citigo across its dealerships, with prices commencing from just €9,995 for the entry-level Active model. Citigo customers can choose from 3-door and 5-door models, both of which are powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, with two power outputs on offer, 60hp and 75hp. Both variants are seated in tax band A with emissions of 105g/km of CO2, this results in an annual road tax fee of €160. The Citigo has performed admirably well in recent safety tests resulting in a 5-star rating from the EuroNCAP, it comes with ESP and side head thorax airbags as standard. Amongst the options available for the Citigo is a new five-speed automatic transmission, also available are satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity.
