Honest - the SKODA Citigo SE 1.0 is available for £69 per-month via 0% finance. That is very, very, very cheap for a new car. This personal contract plan also requires the motorist to find a £2,426.28 deposit so the total outlay throughout the contract is £4,841.28 (based on thirty-five monthly payments). And honest - during this period the running costs are very, very, very low. As such it averages 62.8mpg, returns 72.2mpg on the extra-urban cycle and manages 50.4mpg in town. This, of course, ensures it has low emissions so this city car can be taxed for free in year one then for £20 (at today's rates). It is also backed-up by a three year thirty thousand mile warranty to further minimise expenditure. At the end of the contract the motorist has three options (honest). One, pay the £3,938.72 final payment to own the vehicle outright. This totals £8,780 which is list price. Two, return it. With this scenario there is nothing else to pay assuming the vehicle is in reasonable condition and within its mileage allowance (thirty-thousand). Three, purchase as-per option one then part exchange via a second personal contract plan. If the vehicle is worth more than the optional final payment the difference contributes to the replacement's deposit. Honestly - that could be very, very, very handy.
SKODA Citigo SE 1.0 Review
Now, let us be honest. The SKODA Citigo SE 1.0 is a far better car than its price tag suggests. For starters, it comfortably seats two adults in the front and there is plenty of room for kids in the back. The spacious interior complements the class-competitive 251-litre boot that can be increased to 951-litres by folding the rear seats flat. The latter far eclipses rivals such as the Ford Ka and Vauxhall Adam. The Citigo is also very, very, very easy to drive. Why? Because its pint-sized proportions and excellent visibility make manoeuvring easy, and it has a reasonably comfortable ride. The light(ish) steering and smooth five-speed manual transmission make life pleasant too. The only niggle is that the 60PS three-cylinder petrol engine can feel stretched on faster roads and it requires 14.4 seconds to propel motorists to 62mph (honestly). Standard equipment includes the electronic stability program which makers cornering safer, air-conditioning, electric front windows and an engine immobiliser so it has a nice specification for the money (honest).
