The new Skoda Citigo has been given the Monte Carlo treatment seen on its big brother the Fabia.
While the starting point for the Citigo Monte Carlo is the mid-range SE trim, several features set it apart including bigger 15-inch alloy wheels and spoilers to the front and rear.
The racing feel continues inside the cabin with a "sports" steering wheel complemented by red and black upholstery and Skoda's Portable Infotainment Device with its satnav, trip and vehicle information, media player and Bluetooth connectivity coming as standard.
A 60-horsepower three-cylinder unit is the only engine option along with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The car's bigger wheels and the absence of an engine stop-start system edge the Citigo Monte Carlo above the 100g/km emissions threshold, which places it in road tax band B and a current charge of £20 a year.
Skoda fans can opt for a three-door version priced from £10,590 or a five-door version starting from £10,940.
