Skoda Citigo, which is basically the Czech automaker’s version of the new Volkswagen Up!, recently got a sports variant and will be called the Skoda Citigo Sport. The racier looking city car comes with a lowered chassis, racing stripes and a set of spoilers.
The Citigo Sport is based on the Ambition trim line and goes on sale in both three and five door format. Powering the Citigo Sport is a 1.0litre MPI petrol engine which can be had in two states of tune- 60 HP or 75 HP. The transmission options include a five-speed manual and an automated-shift gearbox (ASG).
One of the catchiest bits on the outside is the set of black 15-inch “Auriga” design alloy wheels. The car rides 15 millimetres lower than the standard edition and features a ‘styling kit’ that includes a front and rear spoiler and rear diffuser. Other bits include tinted windows and an adhesive racing stripe in contrasting colour, which runs from the grille across the roof to the rear. The Citigo Sport can be bought in any of the three exclusive colour options: candy white with red stripes, tornado red with black stripes and deep black with red stripes.
On the inside, the car gets a three-spoke steering covered in red leather, red, grey and black seats, red floormats, a grew instrument panel and a new ignition key with red stripe and “sport” lettering.
There is no news of Citigo making an entry into our fast emerging car market but won’t it be really nice to have the Citigo Sport dotting our streets and offering us with a chic and sporty little city runabout?
