Background

Together with the Seat Mii, the Skoda Citigo is a cheaper, but just as able, rebadged version of the VW Up. There are three- and five-door versions, and a choice of power outputs for its 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engines.

60sec road test

Lots to like here. The Citigo costs peanuts to run (and to buy if you pick the base model), yet is well-built, good to drive, more spacious than you might expect and has refinement above the tin can levels of most city cars. Since it beats its VW brother on price, you’d have to be a real badge snob to pick the Up.

The one we’d buy

1.0 MPI 75bhp

The one we’d avoid like the plague

The 59bhp version can be hard work, although in fairness it doesn’t feel a huge step down from the 75

Rivals to consider

Citroen C1, Fiat 500, Fiat Panda, Hyundai i10, Peugeot 108, Renault Twingo, Seat Mii, Toyota Aygo, Volkswagen Up

For 

Running costs, refinement, neatly thought-out interior

Against

Looks like a milk carton that’s fallen over
