Ten Second Review
Skoda's Citigo Monte Carlo takes the 60PS three-cylinder version of the brand's Citigo urban runabout and adds a stack of attitude. Body styling addenda, 15-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension and racier seats are just part of a deal to put a citycar on your driveway you could feel really proud of.
Badging a car can be a minefield. You want to end up with something memorable and vaguely apt without lapsing into unintentional comedy. The Ford Aspire wasn't the least bit aspirational and the Austin Allegro Sport was about as sporting as shooting fish in a barrel. The MINI Hampton edition wasn't something most guys would admit to owning and the Hyundai Excel excelled solely at projecting the image of a clueless skinflint. So what are we to make of this, a Skoda Citigo citycar with a 'Monte Carlo' badge on the back. Think Monte Carlo and you think of oligarchs using Ferraris as their daily drivers. Pulling up outside the casino in a tiny Skoda would probably elicit a raised eyebrow and a request to move on. Still, the link isn't entirely tenuous. Skoda has campaigned its cars at the Monte Carlo rally with some success. None of them were Citigos though.
I'm not sure what a 1.0-litre engine with 60PS will feel like on the Col de Turini but I'd hazard a guess that coming down might be a bit more exciting than going up. This Monte Carlo model isn't meant to be taken too seriously as a performance projectile but Skoda has at least gone to the effort of fitting it with lower and firmer suspension to dispel the suspicion that this is purely a bit of cosmetic frippery. The body is lowered by 15mm as a result and the bigger 15-inch alloy wheels also mean that the ride will be a little chattier over bad surfaces. That 60PS three-pot motor might not set your trousers alight on the drag up Beau Rivage but it's perfectly adequate for squirting about town as the body of this car is extremely light. The sprint to 62mph takes around 14 seconds and up to around 20mph, the Citigo feels quite peppy due to its low gearing and lack of inertia. It's usually enough to zip it in front of most things from the lights. The top speed is 99mph, so you'll need to be really trying hard to get yourself into trouble on the motorway, but you'll also need to give the Citigo Sport a determined pedalling to keep up with outside lane traffic. Good steering, high levels of grip and strong brakes mean that the Citigo - along with its SEAT Mii and Volkswagen up! siblings - offer more than the usual citycar fare for keener drivers.
Design and Build
Unlike some citycars, you can buy the Monte Carlo in both three and five-door guises and it looks equally purposeful in either body style. The exterior treatment includes model-specific alloy wheels, front and rear spoilers, plus a rear diffuser: all are finished in black, as indeed are the grille and door mirrors. You rather lose this contrast effect if you then specify a dark body colour. Pair it with Candy White or Tornado Red and it looks really punchy. So what's different with this revised model? Well, the front section has been subtly updated, so there's a new bonnet, a redesigned radiator grille, modified bumpers and updated fog lights, all aiming to create a fresher, younger look. The front headlights are fitted with LED daytime running lights and the fog lights come with an optional cornering function, which lights up the area the vehicle is turning into on junctions with poor visibility. There are tinted tail lights too and the interior has been upgraded with a smarter instrument cluster and redesigned seats. All versions of the Citigo are built in the same Slovakian factory and build quality seems very strong. The dashboard is simply designed, with a clear instrument binnacle and a high-mounted pod that houses the ventilation and audio controls. There's no reach adjustment on the steering column which is a minor grumble but otherwise there's aces of space and adjustability up front. The five-door model has no more rear space than the three-door and while there's no shortage of headroom, it's inevitable that in a citycar, rear legroom is pinched if there are taller people up front. The boot is a generous size at 251-litres, which is some recompense.
Market and Model
You'll have to be the judge of whether the Citigo Monte Carlo is worth the additional £2,500 that Skoda charges over and above base 'S' trim, but it does come with plenty of goodies inside as well as a body kit. The cost is around £11,000 for the three-door model, with a £350 premium necessary to get five doors. In return, buyers get 15-inch Crux alloy wheels in black, 15mm lower suspension, sports seats and upholstery, a red centre console, a leather multifunction sports steering wheel and special 'Monte Carlo' styling and badging. This revised Citigo model comes with a wider range of media connectivity options. A colour display, six speakers and a Bluetooth connection are added to the standard 'Swing' set-up. Using this, the system can be connected to the driver's smartphone, which is stored in a special smartphone holder on the dashboard. The apps running on the iOS and Android smartphone operating systems provide navigation, a driving data display, hands-free phone calls as well as playing music and the radio.
Cost of Ownership
As you might well expect from a citycar fronting up with just 60PS, the Citigo Monte Carlo returns some quite sterling economy and emissions figures. Fuel economy is quoted at 64.2 mpg on the combined cycle and even around town, you might well get close to Skoda's 50.4mpg figure. Emissions are rated at just 101g/km. Residual values look set to be extremely strong, thanks to Skoda's aggressive pricing and burgeoning reputation for customer loyalty. The Skoda won't have things all its own way though. The SEAT Mii and the Volkswagen up! are also clamouring for this share of the market.
