Skoda Citigo – 88.1% pass rate

We could have lumped the Skoda Citigo together with the Volkswagen Up and SEAT Mii for this list, but they all have slightly different pass rates and cost different amounts. That’s despite sharing fundamentally identical underpinnings.

Does that mean the Skoda is better made? Probably not. It could mean owners cherish them more, on average, but that’s pure conjecture. But if you want a good, used £5000 car then this is a good bet – and not just because it has a high MoT pass rate.
