After the Volkswagen mother-brand has revealed the five-door version of the Volksawagen Up!, Skoda has taken a step forward and it has introduced the Citigo with the same number of doors as the model which is based on. According to the Czech based automaker, the five-door version of the Skoda Citigo will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The Czech car is not a full carbon copy of the German car, of course, as it gets its own Skoda identity with a distinctive front-end. The cars also differ in terms of features and equipments.
Powering the Citigo is a three-cylinder petrol engine with one litre of displacement in two versions with 60bhp or 75bhp. In its most efficient Green tec variant, the new Citigo achieves a mileage of 4.1 L/100 km, CO2 emissions in the new Skoda model amount to just 96g CO2/km.
Soon the Spanish division of Volkswagen, SEAT will also reveal their five-door Up! known as the SEAT Mii.
