Škoda has unveiled its new small, four-seater Citigo city car. Powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine with a choice of two power outputs – 60PS – (62.8mpg, 105g CO2/km) and 77PS (60.1mpg, 108g CO2/km), it comes with three or five doors. Sales begin in the UK next year.
LIMITED EDITION MINIS
Mini has introduced 2,012 limited edition models to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games. The cars come in red, white or blue and have the London 2012 Olympic logo on the roof and seats, a single sport stripe running over the car and unique grey alloy wheels. Inside, London’s skyline is etched on the dashboard.
USED CAR PRICES COULD RISE
According to a report by car remarketing company BCA, the fall in new vehicle sales could drive the price of used cars up. Around 500,000 fewer new cars have been sold since the economic crash of 2008, which means there are fewer second-hand models coming on the market, driving up prices.
