Skoda has released the first image along with initial details for the five-door version of the Citigo. It follows the three-door version that was revealed last year and is essentially a re-badged version of the Volkswagen Up! which also presented recently in 5-door format.

Power will come courtesy of two 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline engines. The entry level version generates 60hp (44 kW / 60 PS) whilst the more powerful option produces 75 hp ( 55 kW / 60 PS ). The Citigo is capable of producing a fuel economy figure of 4.1-liters/100km (68.9 mpg imp / 57.4 mpg US) whilst emissions are rated at 96g CO2/km.

Both the three-door and five-door versions will be launched in European showrooms in May following their public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
