What is it?
The Skoda Citigo has been given a facelift some 200,000 sales and six years after entering the market.
The changes aren’t drastic. The car's mechanicals have been left untouched, while bumper styling changes have extended the car's length by 34mm. A few other exterior styling and equipment modifications, and the addition of more kit, complete the update.
The Citigo's bonnet now has more muscular-looking bulges in it, while the chrome-edged front grille and bumper have also been tweaked slightly. The rear end styling has also been revised with SE models getting tinted brake lights. New for this version of the Citigo are redesigned 15in alloy wheels and an alluring Kiwi Green body colour, which replaces the Spring Green paint previously available.
Inside is where you will spot most of the differences, which include a new instrument cluster and updated infotainment options. Our test car was fitted with the Swing infotainment system, which is available on all models above the entry-level S trim, and is similar in look and operation to the one on the facelifted Up. The new infotainment system also comes complete with a smartphone dock, which replaces the Garmin-powered device previously offered. The main reason was to offer the driver more control and flexibility through Skoda’s Move&Fun app, which provides users with sat-nav, driving data, radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
