Road Test

Available as three-door and five-door versions, the Citigo measures 3.56 metres long, 1.65 metres wide and 1.48 metres high. Generous interior space due to long wheel base of 2.42 metres provides enough comfort for four passengers. The boot volume is a sizeable 251 litres, which can be extended to 951 litres by folding down the rear seats. Front headrests integrated into the seats, and smart solutions of storage compartments, cup holders and multimedia systems, as well as storage pockets on the sides of the front seats. In addition, a special bag hook integrated in to the glovebox handle, and a photograph holder on the central console. In the three-door version, the 'Easy Entry' system allows easy access to the rear seats. The front passenger's seat can be moved and folded forward to ensure easy access to the rear seats. Two three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engines 60PS and 75PS with mileage of 67.3mpg and 65.7mpg respectively and emissions of 97g and 99g CO2/km. The fuel consumption and emission levels for the standard engines are 62.8mpg and 105g CO2/km with the 60PS engine and 60.1mpg and 108g CO2/km with the 75PS unit. Nothing particularly outstanding about the Citigo but a good, cheap to run city car option.
