Skoda Citigo Engine Oil Finder

The Skoda Citigo is the VW Up for price-conscious small car buyers. Like the sister models from the VW Group, the VW Up and Seat Mii , the compact Skoda is built in Bratislava. It doesn't differ from the Mii and Up in terms of the base and the space it offers, but the price does. This is aimed at the cheap competition from Italy (Fiat Panda) and Korea (Kia Picanto, Hyundai i10 ), but also competes with small cars such as the Citroën C1, Peugeot 108 or Toyota Aygo.

The 3.60 meter long Citigo with a good amount of space, ease of use, safe chassis and good safety equipment pulls into the field. Even with the engines, if the electric motor or the 90 hp three-cylinder turbo are not the goal (both available in the Up), it makes no difference in which of the three small group cars you sit.

The Citigo was revised in June 2017. The facelift can be recognized by the two additional beads in the bonnet, the new radiator grille, the new fog lights and the modified bumpers.

The body of the Citigo is upright and the wheelbase is relatively long at 2.42 meters. This creates a good sense of space in the interior and space for four occupants. The large windows ensure a pleasant all-round view. The Citigo is as handy as its little brothers Up and Mii. That means the Citigo costs less than an Up, but drives just as nimble. The ideal area of ​​application is the city, but there is also little to be said against a longer tour with three people. The suspension is sufficiently comfortable when fully loaded, if it loses a bit of firmness, and the solid straight-line stability also has something to do on the motorway.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Skoda Citigo's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Skoda Citigo engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Skoda Citigo? Whether you are topping up your Skoda Citigo oil or doing a full change of your Skoda Citigo's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
