Skoda Citijet Concept unveiled ahead of 2014 Worthersee

Article by Andrew Christian, on May 28, 2014

For the 2014 Worthersee event, Skoda apprentices prepared the Citijet Concept under the arm of carmaker’s Head Designer Jozef Kaban. The result is actually a pretty looking car that shows that a city-convertible based on the Citigo can be a perfect addition to Skoda’s lineup.

The Skoda Citijet Concept comes with a distinctive metallic paintwork in blue/white and racy, features 16-inch alloy wheels painted in blue on the right side, while the left side offers white. It seems that the Volkswagen Group likes to chop off the roofs of their cars, as Seat also unveiled their Ibiza Cupster Concept that follows the same path.

In addition, there is a hand-made rear spoiler and a new exhaust system with two tailpipes, which links to the 1.0-liter MPI petrol engine that develops 75 hp (55 kW).

The interior was also enhanced and features a leather-lined three-spoke steering wheel with red stitching. Same style is found on the handbrake handle and gear knob. The seat covers and floor mats have a ‘sport’ material design, while the dashboard is painted in white and red.

The interior also features a 300-watt sound system as well as a music-reactive LED lightning.

“Our apprentices have put their hearts and souls into this vehicle. Every little detail, no matter how small, was discussed, agreed upon and put into practice by the team. It was a real team effort. The outcome: a unique and emotional car, of which everybody involved should be very proud of,” says Head of Skoda Auto Design Jozef Kaban.
