Thanks to the generous wheelbase of 2 420 mm, the engineers were able to create a rather spacious for rear seat passengers interior, and proved that even a city car can have a 251 litre boot capacity, increasing to 951 litres with the rear seats folded.
The car is offered in four trim levels: Easy, Active, Ambition and Style, as well as in two special editions of the Skoda Citigo Monte Carlo and škoda Citigo Fun, which are characterized by many additional features.
