SKODA Citigo Black Edition Revealed

The Skoda Citigo Black Edition has been revealed, adding a variety of technology, comfort and exterior options as standard equipment.

Skoda has expanded its Citigo range with the launch of a new Black Edition, which adds some unique styling features and extra technology to the affordable city car.

In the Citigo range, the new Black Edition bridges the gap between the SE trim and the Monte Carlo special edition.

The Citigo Black Edition sports either a Deep Black or Candy White exterior paint job, depending on customer preference, as well as 15-inch Black Auriga alloy wheels.

The new trim level is available in three-door or five-door formats and with a choice of black or white paint. Outside, it comes with body-coloured door mirrors and 15in black alloy wheels.

Inside, it gets a height-adjustable driver's seat, manual air conditioning and Skoda’s removable infotainment system with satellite navigation as standard. It also gets Bluetooth, front electric windows and tinted rear windows. An entertainment pack with four additional speakers (over the SE’s two-speaker set-up) is included, too.

The Black Edition is available only with the lower-powered version of the Citigo’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, giving 59bhp and 62.8mpg average fuel economy.

The Black Edition bridges the gap between the SE and Monte Carlo spec levels and is available to order now. It carries a £1715 premium over the base-spec Citigo, priced at £9990 for the three-door model and £10,340 for the five-door.

Pulman SKODA now have the Citigo Black Edition in stock

Three SKODA models win at the Auto Express Used Car Awards

ŠKODA models win three awards – including overall used car of the year – from leading magazine Auto Express

The Citigo and Yeti have scooped three wins in this year’s Auto Express used car awards. The Citigo won the category for best used city car, while the Yeti was named best used crossover and the overall used car of the year.

Auto Express described the Citigo as exceptional value for money. “The ŠKODA is smartly styled and solidly built... second-hand buyers will be in safe hands with this compact four-seater,” said the magazine.

 Talking about the overall winner, Auto Express said: “The Yeti has more than proven itself as a new car, and today it’s more desirable than ever as a second-hand buy, which is why it’s our 2015 used car of the year. The ownership experience is first class – the Yeti is a three-time winner of our Driver Power survey – plus the dealer network is rated highly.”

Nick O'Neill, who recently joined the brand as National Used Car Manager, said: “These awards prove what we and the retail network have always known – that ŠKODA cars are brilliant buys for anyone wanting great-quality, value-for-money used cars.

“The Citigo provides thrift and style for those driving in built-up areas, while the Yeti ticks all the boxes for families needing a robust, well-specified car that can handle anything they throw at it.”

Spy pictures from 2017 Leon test drive revealed!

2017 SEAT Leon spotted on test drive!

Spy pictures of the 2017 SEAT Leon facelift have emerged showing a heavily disguised car testing on the road. The Spanish hatch is set to get a mid-life upgrade at the end of 2016, with tweaks all-round expected.

Despite this camouflaged prototype's extensive disguise, the Leon will only receive modest external revisions as the firm focuses its restyling efforts on its forthcoming SUV range. Tweaks to the front and rear-end design should see a sportier, sharper look than the current car.

In terms of the interior, its likely we'll see a general boost in quality and new materials, but the most significant change will be the new touchscreen infotainment system from the Ibiza -that will bring Apple Carplay smartphone connectivity to the range.
