Why did Skoda stop making the Citigo? “We had lofty expectations for the car and customer demand was exceptionally high. As a result, it sold out quicker than expected,” the spokesman added. The Citigo is the only model to be temporarily withdrawn from sale. Higher-volume models such as the Fabia, Octavia and Superb remain available to order.

Is Skoda Citigo a reliable car? The Citigo first went on sale in 2012 and shares its underpinnings with the Volkswagen up! and SEAT Mii. All three models have so far proved reliable, with few common problems to report. Skoda consistently scores well in the manufacturer rankings, too, finishing well within the top 10 on a regular basis.

Is Skoda Citigo good on motorway? Excellent in town and more than capable on A roads and motorway. It's obviously not a fast car but doesn't struggle at 70mph (just slower to get there).

What is the fastest Skoda Citigo? Of real interest is the forthcoming Citigo-e iV – an all-electric version of the Citigo. We've yet to drive it, but Skoda says it will offer 165 miles of range on a full charge, and thanks to the 81bhp electric motor it'll also be the fastest model available.

Does the Skoda Citigo have air con? You do get Bluetooth, air-conditioning, a phone/infotainment system cradle and two front electric windows, but make do without electric mirrors or a DAB radio. The steering wheel has limited adjustability too, with just rake rather than reach.

Does a Skoda Citigo have a turbo? The Citigo shares 90 per cent of its mechanicals with the Mii and up!, although the latter does come with a turbo petrol engine or electric drive, as well as a racy GTI, and the whole range is pricier, too.
