This is new to the Citigo 2017


The VW Up got the obligatory half-time refreshed already last summer, now skoda with the facelift of the identical Citigo after. The facelift version of the smallest Czechs can be admired for the first time at the Geneva Autosalon 2017 (9 to 19 March). But take a good magnifying glass with you, because the changes are not too big.

Active fog lamps
Small tip: The bonnet now has some beads and lines more. In addition, the front apron has been reversed and minimized on the grill design. It is much more exciting, however, that the newly redesigned fog lamps will have a so-called cornering function. Say: The Citigo now shines into the curve. When turning, it automatically switches the right or left fog headlights up to a speed of 40 km / h.

Inside discreetly lifted
A look into the interior of the Skoda Citigo 2017 shows: Again, not with the very big battle ax. Skoda speaks of having made the interior "even higher-quality and functional". In the higher equipment there is a two-color dashboard, as well as a new design. And this seems to be equally double, because the instrument cluster is available in two different versions. Also new: an optional leather multifunction steering wheel. Not so new but still good: The numerous Simply-Clever solutions such as the obligatory Skoda umbrella under the passenger seat, various storage and suspension options or the large one-liter bottle holder.

No turbo three-cylinder In
terms of safety, the Citigo scores with a city emergency brake assistant, which is automatically active between five and 30 km / h. The engine program changes higegen not at all. It remains with the three single-liter three-cylinder petrol engines with 60, 68 and 75 hp. The average 68-hp variant is still operated with natural gas and is to eject only 82 grams of CO2 per kilometer. The two conventional petrol engines have a standard consumption of 4.1 liters. Anyone who has speculated on the much more sparkling 90-hp turbo three-cylinder from the VW Up will be disappointed. Skoda still does not take it into the offer for the Citigo.

Market launch in the spring of 2017
The Citigo facelift remains mainly cosmetic. New 15-inch, a new color called Kiwi-green, the rather decent interventions on front and interior, that was in principle. But what can you do on a simple, quite attractive and well-functioning urban fleet concept also big rumdoktern? Market launch for the revised Citigo is after the Geneva Salon in the spring of 2017. The prices has not yet announced Skoda. It has so far gone at 9,770 euros.
