Skoda has recently announced that a decision on launching the Citigo in Australia hasn’t been made yet but the model won’t arrive in the Pacific country this year.
Even if the Skoda Citigo has been launched for more than a year, Australians can’t enjoy the small urban vehicle because the Czech based automaker has delayed its launch. According to the guys at Car Advice, the Skoda Citigo won’t be launched in Australia this year.
“It’s still under consideration. We haven’t made any decision yet. We’ve never committed to bringing it, we’ve just said that we’re looking at it. I suspect that there’s no change as such, it’s still under consideration”, as Karl Gehling, a Skoda Australia spokesman, told Car Advice.
As a quick reminder, the Skoda Citigo has been officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March. The model is already available for its future customers across Europe, where they have to choose from the 1.0 liter engine, which is coming in two outputs, with 60 BHP and 75 BHP, both of them petrol burners and both of them mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The model is already available for order across the Old Continent.
